Guv Dude had his swagger snatched from him last night when he couldn’t even survive Round 1.

43 still has swagger, Dude doesn’t.  His swagger cred is permanently gone.  Poof!  Just like that.  Sorry pal. MoFo is just the 13th, 15th, 6th, and 15th letters of the alphabet.  MoFo doesn’t mean squat now!  They also ought to take away his pistol and give him a squirt gun.  He didn’t even look as good as a 16th seed going up against a #1 seed in the first round of March Madness.  His biggest contribution to this year’s prez race was that he provided the most and best material to late night talk show hosts.  Late night talk will miss him the most.

Here is a bit from burkablog:

He’s done.

As others have pointed out, Perry is still governor, and will be until his term expires in January 2015. Unless he decides to run again, the 2013 legislative session will be his last. In a perfect world, Perry would settle back into the governor’s office and try to redeem himself for the damage he has inflicted on Texas during the ten years of his governorship. The budget is in shambles, the schools have been starved of funds, teachers have been laid off, the health care infrastructure is rickety, the state water plan went unfunded in a drought of historic proportions, and the state’s two flagship universities have been under attack by the governor’s office. Perry could undo some of the consequences of his policies, but the best thing he can do for Texas in the time left to him is to resign.

Here is all of burkablog.

Well at least Lone Star State taxpayers won’t be on the hook for his security detail in any more GOP primary states.  That ought to save us a few million.

The state’s media outlets won’t have to send their political teams to cover him so they will also save some dough.

I wonder if the Toomey Super PAC hitched a ride with Dude on the trip back to Austin last night?

Over the past ten MLB seasons, which Division has produced the most MVP winners?

Brief observations from yesterday’s inaugural ceremony:

The Hobby Center was about 2/3 full.

One of the Kubosh fellas escorted Helena Brown on stage and she blew us all a kiss.

The Mayor’s #1 priority for the next two years is to bring more jobs to H-Town.

Commentary and MariGirl obtained special seating up in the private boxes and at times our view was obscured by some pigeons.

The National League Central of course has produced five MVP winners in the past ten seasons:  Albert Pujols (2005, 2008, 2009), Joey Votto (2010), and Ryan Broid (2011).

Yesterday the ‘Stros announced that they had hired a “director of decision sciences” so I guess they will have to build the fella a lab so he can create us a World Serious winner – it’s alive!
