Good luck down there.I don't mean to be insulting, but Texas is looked at as kind of a freak show from up here... Present company excluded of course. I hope Texas voters can beat back the haters and Know Nothings.

It is a bit of a freak show. The CRAZY right wingers make up a pretty large contingent.On the counterbalance, you've got the large Dem voting cities of Dallas, Houston, and Austin, plus the large hispanic vote, but there's still huge sections of exurbs and smaller towns that are very white and very crazy.

Now that I'm, once again, a resident of the state of my youth, I can say absolutely that Texas politics *IS* a freakshow!Perry vs. Hutchison vs. that cracker tea-party candidate. Unreal.

True.And, as political hacks go, Perry's pretty damned bad.
