The Chron’s Lisa Falkenberg has a column today on straight ticket and split ticket voting.  Check it out.  A whole bunch of voters enjoy going the straight ticket route.  Maybe they like the convenience involved.  Maybe they are die hard partisans.  Nobody makes them do it or puts a gun to their head.  If you don’t like it, go on ahead and spend 20 minutes spinning the wheel or just go in a vote for a handful or races and then say adios baby.  Just don’t limit our options – please.

I was checking out the GOP U.S. House Speaker-to-Be Sunday night on “60 Minutes” and the fella loves to shed a tear and cry.   If Nancy Pelosi had cried a tenth of the time that Boehner has cried she would have been labeled as not up for the job or emotionally unfit for the job or something like that.

I sure would hate to sit by Boehner watching the end of “Titanic” or “Old Yeller” or “Steel Magnolias.”  The GOP has gone from The Hammer to The Weeper.

On June 28, 2007 B-G-O, err Craig Biggio got his 3,000 hit against the Rockies at The Yard.  Which Rockies pitcher gave up the 3,000 base hit?

I was checking our Ross Ramsey’s piece in the Texas Tribune yesterday titled “Another Losing Season for Texas Democrats” – ouch! Check it out.   It is a sad and somewhat humorous piece that kind of depicts the Lone Star State Dem Party as on the brink of irrelevancy. 

Ross Ramsey’s best line is his last line:  It’s no wonder the Republicans in Texas are breaking into factions: They need the competition.


Aaron Cook of course gave up B-G-O’s 3,000th base hit.   Craig Biggio is celebrating his 45th BD today.  Happy Birthday B-G-O!

What can I say about last night’s game?  I’m glad I wasn’t at Reliant.

Well it looks like the ‘Stros will face Roy Halladay, Roy O., and Cliff Lee in the first three games of 2011 so I guess that’s something of importance from The Yard.
