The Herman Cain camp is blaming the Guv Dude camp for their woes.  Hold on a second.  Dude’s camp hasn’t demonstrated that they could come up with something like this.  That’s too good of a move for the Dude folks.  At best they would have had to stumble on to something or it would have had to fallen from the sky into their laps.

I received an Ellen Cohen mailer yesterday with a quote from HISD Trustee Anna Eastman.  Good move.  FYI:  Trustee Eastman is Commentary’s client.

I received a Jack Christie mailer yesterday with a bunch of GOP leaders endorsing him.  Two Dems were also on the piece – the former H-Town Mayor and former CM Peter Brown.  

Name the Yankee who has had the best season batting average?

Yesterday was the tenth day to Vote Early.  Here is a comparison after Day 10 in 2009.

West Gray (4887 in 2009/ 3680 in 2011)

Moody Park (1015 in 2009/ 625 in 2011)

Acres Homes (1384 in 2009/ 926 in 2011)

Ripley (425 in 2009/ 578 in 2011)

HCCS (590 in 2009/ 722 in 2011)

Bayland (2837 in 2009/ 2087 in 2011)

Mendenhall (3449 in 2009/ 2124 in 2011)

Main Office on Preston (1001 in 2009/ 762 in 2011)

HCCS and now Ripley are the only ones of the eight that is seeing an increase after Day 10. 

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

What’s up with Moody Park?

I’m thinking a 15% turnout this time around but I’ll let you know Monday for sure.

The great Babe Ruth of course batted .393 for the Bronx Bombers in 1923.

Once again there is nothing from The Yard!
