My old pal Dem State Senator Leticia Van de Putte decided not to run next year for Lone Star State Guv because she didn’t want to put her family through a campaign against scorched earth style tactics that would for sure be employed by GOPers Dude or Hutch. So Senator Van de Putte instead recommended that Dem State Senator Kirk Watson go up against the GOP’s scorched earth style campaign tactics. Check out today’s Chron.
So far nobody has called me to tell me they are supporting 43’s bud, Tom Schieffer. Heck, I don’t know anyone here in H-Town that is supporting Schieffer. Schieffer is supposed to be in H-Town today to kick-off his campaign so I guess some local Dems will be on hand – maybe.
Senator Van de Putte says that Schieffer isn’t exciting the Dem base. Can Sen. Watson excite the base?
As long as the frontline of Lone Star statewide Dems candidates is made up of Anglo fellas, I don’t see a scenario where the Dem base gets revved up – sorry – no se puede.
The Lone Star State Dem Party Chair put out a press release yesterday slapping around GOP Harris County Judge Ed Emmett for coming up short on adopting a good ethics policy over at the county. I don’t have a problem with that. However, it would probably be a good idea if local Dems put forward a comprehensive ethics policy with teeth for the county rather than a piece here, a bill there, a snipe there – you get the picture. I don’t mind piling on the County Judge but where is our ethics proposal.
Commentary forgot to mention that MariGirl celebrated Birthday Numero 24 this past Lunes. Happy Birthday This Past Monday Marisol Valero Davila!
About the only good thing that happened at The Yard yesterday was the announcement that The Big Puma and Cara welcomed their fourth little puma into their den – Abigail Primm Puma. That is now four Puma girls for The Big Puma and Cara – cool. We should have won last night when we got the first two batters on base in the bottom of the ninth but then Pudge and Kaz whiffed then Jason Michaels did what any .185 hitter is supposed to do in that situation – tapped one back to the pitcher for the final out …..arrrrgh!
