Houston... but not the mayoral race

I often chide my friends in Houston for having kind of dull, stupid muni elections based on 'qualifications' and 'skills' instead of the more fun 'bullshit' that often permeates city elections here in Austin. That's not to say candidates in Austin elections aren't qualified and possessed of the skills necessary to govern, it's just that at least here the elections devolve so quickly (and thoroughly) into a race to the mud that it's more entertaining.

Until recently, we had Houston beat on this count. And no, I'm not talking about the mayoral race which is receiving the vast majority of the attention(and we're STILL for Annise... she's prettier than Locke and has better friends). I'm talking about the District A race which pits Lane Lewis against, no shit, a woman who is, apparently, a barfly.

Like I could make this shit up.

Not that there's anything wrong with drinkin'. They know me by name at three different liquor stores, one of which is Spec's, so don't think I'm coming from some sort of holier than thou place. This is more along the lines of... YOU'RE RUNNING FOR OFFICE AND IT'S NOT TOWN DRUNK. It would also be a good idea if you didn't accept endorsements from people like Hotze especially when you have family that's gay. What kind of message does that send to them? Not only about who you'll pal around with to gain support but what you really think of them?

So, yeah, in Houston District A, go vote for LANE LEWIS.
