Lt. Governor Candidate Stoops To Saturday Night Live Level Of Campaign Silliness [VIDEO]

I really don't care what you think of my politics. I also know I'm not going to change your mind (nor do I want to). My job is to look for satire and this ad is ridiculous.

Obama’s Latte Salute Is The Latest Target Of Haters

So the President exited Air Force One with a drink in his hand. He then saluted the military with the cup in his hand. Some folks with axes to grind see this as disrespect for the military. I see it as absent minded behavior from a guy who just ordered military strikes and was on his way to meet with his allies.

Rick Perry Indicted on Two Charges of Abuse of Power

UPDATE (8/16): Gov. Perry addressed Friday's indictments in a short press conference, today.  "We don’t settle political differences with indictments in this country," he said. "It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to rip away at the very fabric of our state’s constitution. This indictment amounts to nothing more than abuse of power and I cannot and I will not allow that to happen."

Will The Next New City Council Asshat Please Step Up?

I used to have high reverence for people who ran for public office.  They do give up a lot and in some instances are not even paid for their service. I no longer feel that way.  I've seen far to many who are doing it for motivations that have nothing to do with "service".

Now, Councilman Todd Klein has announced he will not run for re-election and I'll be happy to hold the door open for him.

Dump The Arrogant Councilman Once And For All

Despite what you might think, I'm not super "up" on local politics. The only reasons I watch what's going on at all is to have stuff to poke fun at on the radio. Over the years I've watched Victor Hernandez embarrass the city, gum up the works and cost us much more than he should of in time, effort and money.
