Conventional Wisdom

SOMEONE at BOR wrote a nice piece about conventional wisdom and singled out Texas Monthly when, frankly, you could have tagged any number of pundits and journalists around the state. I figured I'd throw some more gas into the fire and give you a few points to consider...

1) The idiot Democrats of old are no mas. Those still around are definitely shaping up to fight more aggressively (Sharp).

2) The Democratic Party, at a statewide level, finally has it's act together and is moving forward.

3) There are a number of candidates who are going to run in 2010 who will win. Hank Gilbert will be one of them.

2008 was THE highwater mark for Texas Republicans. The economy here isn't that bad and there was a black man on top of the ticket, a sure way to drive R turnout. Even with that and resources to waste, Democrats edged into the 40's. In 2010, they'll pull pluralities and that's the ballgame. Even President Obama managed to get within 10 points of a Republican Presidential candidate. Who was white.

Do you folks REALLY not get how fucked Texas Republicans are?

I can't wait for the Dems to win the Lege so we can pass some Midland-bashing legislation. How about requiring all pickup trucks to be colored pink?

Maybe Sharp can run on the slogan "The New Conventional Wisdom"

Or "Change mixed with conventional wisdom. Change. Hope."
