Seriously, you've nothing better to do, CradDICK?

I've spent some time over the last few days reading about CradDICK's interim charges and among them is a voter ID bill. Goddamn if you Republicans aren't going to waste more of my tax dollars on this issue.

All of you Republicans voters out there need to be aware of what that fucked-in-the-head old man is wasting your time on. There isn't a damn problem with voter fraud anywhere in Texas, other than in the mind of that nutjob Tax Assessor Collector in Harris County (anyone remember douchie's name?).

Of course, the interim charges aren't all bad... CradDICK's other hot issue, which he stole from Hank Gilbert, is eminent domain and the TTC. This is the same CradDICK that in 2003 helped push through the legislation that enabled the TTC. It's always good to see he's now coming around to thinking like a Democrat on this but it's a little late in the game. The fact that he worked so hard to push this in 2003, 2005 and then to stand in the way of fixing it in 2007 make his recent conversion more than little suspect. I would call it pandering, but that's kind of insulting to panderers the world over. This is just him trying to salvage his Speakership and his moribund party.

Speaking of the Republican Party of Texas, what are they concerned about? Making that idiot Railroad Commissioner Mike Williams look good and doing a puff piece on Debbie Riddle. They're trying to rehab Williams by making sure he says nothing about a subject he knows less than nothing about, namely the Railroad Commission on which he sits. In Debbie's case, they are trying to make her sound competent even though everyone knows that Jessica's Law, which the RPT credits to her, was really the work of Hartnett and Gattis who had to jump in and fix the bill that Debbie thoroughly screwed up.

Seriously, y'all, the Lege is considered by many to be a joke because of people like CradDICK and Debbie Riddle. Now we know the Mongos of Midland aren't going to vote against him. Which means that people of Texas have to. The next step is for the House, during the next session, to shun him. It's up to the members of the Lege to restore the integrity of the body.

My bad on that one... and I corrected it. I think I just had Jessica on the brain.
