Last night I watched H-Town CM James Rodriguez debate his Tea Bagger opponent on Houston Access TV.  Right off the bat James put her in a perplexed mode when he mentioned her Tea Bagger history.  She never recovered.  She is one of these candidates that you can’t tell what she stands for but you know what she is against – everything.  She is kind of like an issueless candidate. Oh well, that’s politics.  I don’t think she liked being linked to the Tea Baggers but heck, that’s how she rolls and runs.

Yesterday I received a Planned Parenthood Action Fund mailer.

I also got a Juliet Stipeche for HISD Trustee robo call even though I don’t live in her district.

Yesterday I mentioned San Luis skipper Tony La Russa managing in six World Seriouses.  Name the six teams he faced? 

Yesterday was the fourth day to Vote Early.  Here is a comparison after Day 4 in 2009.

West Gray (1654 in 2009/ 1184 in 2011)

Moody Park (325 in 2009/ 207 in 2011)

Acres Homes (390 in 2009/ 326 in 2011)

Ripley (179 in 2009/ 210 in 2011)

HCCS (177 in 2009/ 259 in 2011)

Bayland (972 in 2009/ 712 in 2011)

Mendenhall (1109 in 2009/ 709 in 2011)

Main Office on Preston (391 in 2009/ 308 in 2011)

HCCS and now Ripley are the only ones of the eight that is seeing an increase after Day 4. 

Most of the other City Early Voting locations are seeing decreases but things are getting better.

If this keeps up, I think folks would be wise to step up and participate in “The Decisive Latino Force 2012” that CM James Rodriguez and SVREP are heading up.  “The Decisive Latino Force 2012” gathering is Wednesday, November 16.  Contact Commentary for details.

Now Guv Dude’s camp is saying they might skip the debates.  They as may as well skip the rest of the campaign.  I don’t see how they think this helps.  This ain’t Lone Star State politics or as James Carvelle said yesterday that Dude has been playing Double A ball and is now in the bigs and he can’t hit the curve ball. 

The big CSPAN van will be in Commentary’s ‘hood today at Hogg Middle School from 12:30 – 2:30pm today.  I wonder if they want some Commentary.  I don’t think I’ve ever done a CSPAN.

Tony La Russa has faced the Dodgers, Giants, Reds, Red Sox, Tigers, and Rangers of course in the World Serious. 

Speaking of, you can’t get a game better than last night as the champagne corks were one strike away from being popped – twice.  The Big Puma was big last night.  Baseball was at its best last night.

Pssst!  I don’t have anything from The Yard.
