Commentary did a pre-debate commentary this morning over at Fox 26 News.  My GOP pal Chris Begala also provided a commentary.   We will be on the air tomorrow morning with our post debate scorecards.

Commentary thinks Paul Sadler easily kicked Ted Cruz’s arse last night.  Full disclosure – I’m a biased unapologetic liberal Dem.

Sadler sort of called Cruz a troll last night and then sort of apologized for using the word troll.  I kind of wish Sadler hadn’t apologized.  I would have waited to see if the American Trolls for Democratic Action, the United Troll Front, or the Troll PAC put out a statement condemning Sadler.

Sadler called out Cruz on the Affordable Health Care Act on giving away certain benefits. He called him out on immigration reform and The DREAM Act – Cruz said something about e-verify.

He called him out for not supporting Sen. Cornyn.  Sadler also called Cruz a liar.

Sadler ripped his Tea Party opponent.  I can understand why Cruz doesn’t want to do six debates with Sadler.  Sadler did what Cruz’s GOP primary opponents couldn’t do. 

Burkablog and a columnist for the SA Express News didn’t like last night’s debate.  I did.

We will know this evening if Miguel Cabrera wins the Triple Crown.  In 1967 when Carl Yastrzemski won the Triple Crown he also won the AL MVP Award.  Who was the AL MVP Award runner-up in 1967?

The Texas Lyceum has a poll showing Romney leading The President 58-39 in the Lone Star State.  I don’t know about that.

Kuffer has a good take on the poll here.

Last night Commentary attended the Westside Blue State Special sponsored by the Cy-Fair Area Democrats.  There were about 250 or so Dems in attendance at the Cypress Saloon on Telge.  That part of Harris County is where we need to be growing the Dem vote.  I think I’ve said that before.

Traci Jensen was there and a few people came up to her and wrote her checks right on the spot – cool.

As of yesterday in Harris County, 60,553 have requested mail ballots with 24,266 generated by the GOP and 19,236 by Dems. 

The Chron E-Board endorsed in constable races here.

The Chron E-Board endorsed in a JP race here.

Hall of Fame great Harmon Killebrew of the Twins of course was the AL MVP Award runner-up in 1967.

We’re still sitting at 106 and our last game is this afternoon at Wrigley as the playoff teams have been set but we just don’t know who will be playing where – got it!
