Guv Dude is finally calling it quits, shutting down his disastrous campaign, and coming home.  It’s about time.

He embarrassed himself on the big stage and he wasn’t ready for prime time. 

He comes home with a lot less swagger and that limp shtick of his that is looking more and more like phony cockiness.  He kind of reminds me of “Yosemite Sam.” 

The only contribution he made to the 2012 presidential campaign was “oops”.

Like I said yesterday, I hope he comes home and gets on a diet that includes a lot of humble pie.  If he starts up with his old act again he’s going to get a lot more pushback than he’s been used to getting.  I also hope he understands that most of the state now looks at him a whole lot differently than when he embarked on his ill fated quest last summer.  Stay tuned!

Note to Dems:  Harry Zamora, Democratic candidate for Harris County Constable, Pct. 2, and his wife Leslie own a video production company called Sky Way Productions.  Sky Way Productions is listed as a $3,500 in-kind video production contribution to the Leticia Ablaza for City Council Campaign on her January 17 Campaign and Expenditure Report.  Ablaza just ran against James Rodriguez.  Ablaza is also a known Tea Party activist and current Chief of Staff to District A Council Member Helena Brown.

FYI Disclosure:  Joe Martinez, Democratic candidate for Harris County Constable, Pct. 2, is Commentary’s client.

When was the last time an MLB World Serious game was scheduled for a daytime start?

It didn’t take long for H-Town City Council District A CM Helena Brown to upset some of her constituents. Check out the Chron story here.

At yesterday’s H-Town City Council meeting, CM Brown tagged six agenda items – yikes!  One agenda item involved parks projects in four different council districts – double yikes!  

Word is Dude will endorse Newt this morning.  Newt’s second wife will be interviewed on “Nightline” tonight.   It turns out Rick Santorum won the Iowa Caucuses and Mitt Romney is now claiming that in Iowa, tie goes to the runner – got it!  I wonder if Dude’s staff is going back to work for Newt? 

4 p.m., Saturday, October 24, 1987 of course was the last time a World Serious game was scheduled for a daytime start.  Game 6 was held in the Metrodome in Minneapolis between San Luis and the Twins.

News from The Yard:
