Here is what was sent to me yesterday:

Dear Marc Campos:

Did anyone ask the General (Ricardo Sanchez) about Abu Ghraib? If so, I’d like to know what he said.

In talking to several groups of Democrats, that’s the one question which keeps coming up about whether they want to support him.  Because of that question, some people are hoping to find another Democrat who would agree to run for the U.S. Senate.

Please let me know whether he was asked about Abu Ghraib, and what his answer was.

It’s better for Democrats to do the vetting than to wait and let the Republicans do it— because they would create a much worse story.  And that’s despite the fact that it was the Republicans who got us into that God-Awful war in the first place.

Of the 19 Hijackers of 9/11, one was from Egypt, one from Lebanon, 3 from the United Arab Emirates, and 14 from Saudi Arabia.  Not a single one was from Iraq!  Yet we attacked Iraq.  The war was really all about oil.  The King of Saudi Arabia has been a longtime buddy of Bush 41 & Bush 43.

We didn’t spend a whole lot of Saturday morning on this issue.  Rather than me trying to explain his response, I encourage every concerned Democratic Party activist or leader in the state to ask General Sanchez about this between now and the March Primary.  The General will be travelling the state so folks will have the opportunity to engage him.  I encourage Democrats to do so and research his background and this issue.

Numero 45 had a three run dinger last night so now he has 74 RBIs for the season.  Who led the team in RBIs last season and with how many?

Commentary got an email yesterday from At-Large 5 candidate Laurie Robinson where she announced that she had been endorsed by Rev. Bill Lawson.  That’s very interesting.   FYI:  H-Town CM Jolanda Jones is the At-Large 5 incumbent.

There were not a whole lot of us there last night at The Yard to watch Wandy strike out 13 Pirates in 7 innings.  16 Pirates ended up striking out – not bad at all.

Hunter Pence of course had 91 RBIs last season to lead the team.

Hunter has 77 RBIs this season while the ‘Stros are still sitting on 90 losses.
