Sounds Good to Me: Layoff Doggett

Turn the dems against each other? Every chance we get! And if we can Layoff Doggett, the author of the Dogget Layoff for teachers, all the better.

Doggett layoff author opposes Perry

Big surprise: Lloyd Doggett doesn’t like Perry. I guess he’s given up on winning his primary against one of the Castro twins (I can’t tell them apart), so he’s going to spend time campaigning against the Governor who wouldn’t lie for money. has a blog entry explaining the details, here. Doggett’s the creator of … Continue reading

Texas Medical Association @TexMed “Friendly Incumbent” rule

A fellow Texas Medical Association member asked me today how I felt about TexPAC – was it even worth giving them money and “what about their endorsements for judges?” He had been surprised to notice the TMA’s endorsement of some Democrat candidates after the Judicial endorsements caught his eye. (He even asked whether the list … Continue reading

At Monday night’s debate in Houston between Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz, Republicans in the runoff for the US Senate race(Twitter #TxSen), I met a couple who said they were still “undecided” about who to vote for.

Texas Redistricting: You can’t make this stuff up (Burnt Orange can)

I don’t even have to emphasize or extrapolate from round about comments. The Left lays it out for me.

Perry Appeals Congressional Map Fight to U.S. Supreme Court – Businessweek

The Court in San Antonio re-drew all of Texas’ Congressional Districts and even created a new one in Tarrant County. From my right wing perspective, it appears that the Judges were protecting the minor Party, rather than minor voters. The judges ignored the true voting record of Comal County, at least, by leaving the Hispanic … Continue reading

Fed court proposes Texas congressional districts

The “minority” the court maps protect is the minority Party. In the State Senate map, Wendy Davis’ seat is “protected.” In the Congressional Districts, it’s Doggett, with a split that separates his District 25 from the new District 34. Texas Democrats were pleased with the proposed map.”We are pleased that Texas is on the road … Continue reading
