H-Town CM Toni Lawrence, a GOPer and Commentary pal, announced yesterday that she was setting up an exploratory committee to run for county commissioner. County Commissioner Jerry Eversole is expected not to seek re-election next year. Here is a part of her press release: “If elected, Lawrence would be the first Republican female to serve on the Harris County Commissioners Court.” I don’t think that is correct. I think we had a substitute female – Liz Ghrist – a while back who served for a few months if I’m not mistaken. Of course, I could be wrong.

CEWDEM put out some person’s take yesterday that dissappeared and CEWDEM said that I was in a "running feud" with this person.  CORRECTION:  the only folks that I bother to feud with are the miserable Cubbie fans that invade The Yard on occasion.  CEWDEM also put out a rather interesting and stinging take on the disappearing first take – get it.

The H-Town Mayor got some unwanted run in today’s Chron about him losing some city council votes.  Check it out.  Hey, when you are out campaigning across the Lone Star State half of the time, this stuff is going to happen. I’m sure the John Sharp supporters like the article.

In today’s Austin American Statesman, there is a piece about the Democratic National Committee meeting in Austin and saying they are going to help out the Lone Star State Dem Party in 2010. Great, maybe they will produce for us a candidate for Guv that actually stands a chance at winning.  Check out the story. 

You got to hand it to Guv Dude for figuring out how to drive the campaign agenda. It looks like the Aggie Bonfire could be the issue that seals the deal for him in the GOP Primary next year.

St. Arnold will roll out “Divine” today. It is a new brew.  Check it out in today’s Chron.  I might give it a try but I’ll still be an Amber fella.

SHOW ME THE TV, PART II as H-Town Mayoral candidate Peter Brown launched his second TV ad as his opponents helplessly watched them.

I wonder how GOP Congressman Joe Wilson – who nobody had ever heard of until last night – feels about being the U.S. of A.’s Arsehole Numero Uno this morning. It reminded me of the role Carol Kane played , Miracle Max’s wife, Valerie, from “The Princess Bride” – “liar!”

Speaking of, we’re not going to reach Cecil Puede’s goal of 90 wins this season because we would have to go 22-1 the rest of the way which is darn near impossible since we still have three left against the Cards and four against the Phillies – both first place teams – yikes! You still have to love the fact that they played an exciting game last night and won it in the bottom of the ninth.
