What A Crock

Today's email from the Travis County Democratic Party begins...

This election year promises to be one of the most exciting years in American history. Barack Obama and Rick Noriega have inspired Texas Democrats like never before, but if we are to achieve our goal of turning Travis County 100% blue, then we also need to focus on the important down-ballot races.

Just to inject a note of reality into this lovefest, on March 4 a hundred thousand more Texans were inspired to vote for Hillary Clinton than were for Prince Charming. And while Rick Noriega did manage to avoid a runoff by eking out 51 percent of the primary vote, his three opponents were a teacher who had never run for anything before, a conspiracy theorist, and a perennial candidate whose preferred method of communication is reputed to be notes left in a potted plant on his porch. And all three combined didn't have two dimes to rub together in financing. So while I hope Rick does send Big Bad Boxturtle into retirement, he's not exactly pulling Roger Staubach or Willie Nelson numbers on the inspirationmeter.

Yes, we need to get out the vote and win our downballot races. But please, TCDP, if you want my help, don't insult my intelligence with this sort of horseshit.
