Commentary said this last week: 

Commentary heard yesterday that a prominent political TV talking head is contemplating a race for a statewide office as a Democrat here in Texas.    I know the individual.  This person knows issues and knows what is involved in a statewide race. That’s all I will say on that. 

I was talking about Matthew Dowd, former ABC News talking head and a former Democrat turned GOPer now back to being a Democrat.   He is thinking about running for Lieutenant Governor as a Democrat.  Go to Texas Monthly online to read an interview he gave them. 

I worked with Matthew in the 1980s and 1990s when he was a Democrat. I have not talked to him since he went over and started to work for W’s campaign in 2000. I don’t have anything against him. 

He hasn’t talked to me about running in 2022. I will say this. Matthew will find out that Democratic Party activists of the lefty persuasion will give him a hard time and rough going over his work with W during a Democratic Primary race. Heck, we are still dealing with the effects of W taking his eyes off Afghanistan and going after WMDs in Iraq.  It would not be smooth sailing for Matthew during a Democratic Primary. 

Here is from the Chron on a contract that was approved yesterday at Harris County Commissioners Court: 

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo on Tuesday accused Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle of lying about an $11 million contract to conduct vaccine outreach, an accusation that spurred the ugliest public exchange since the pair began serving together and transformed a typically routine session into a forum for personal attacks. 

And this: 

The Houston firm is run by Felicity Pereyra, whom Cagle noted also ran the 2015 Houston mayoral campaign of Democrat Adrian Garcia, the current Precinct 2 commissioner. 

Here is the entire read: Hidalgo, Cagle spar over $11M million vaccine outreach contract as Commissioners Court exchange gets personal (houstonchronicle.com) 

Her running Adrian’s 2015 mayoral campaign into the ground ought to disqualify her. Just saying. They didn’t ask Commentary. 

Royko is running out of excuses for the GOP being ok with folks croaking because of the personal responsibility thing. Here is what he sent me yesterday: 

You have no credibility concerning the “Chicken Little” alarm over the Wuhan China virus cases being worse for children than the flu virus. 

The vast majority of those exposed do not need hospitalization, let alone die. 

The forced masks, if not proper N95 respirators along with proper cross-contamination prevention procedures, is a waste of time and precious taxpayer resources. 

This is all about the autocrats forcing everyone to submit to Maoist-like rule

Talk about bad Kool Aid, we have a record amount of COVID folks in hospital ICUs across the country. Thank you, GOP. 

We won last night and have a 4 ½ game lead over the A’s in the AL West. We wrap up the homie this afternoon against KC and the game can be seen on YouTube. Got it?
