  11. Darn, now we get him back here in TX. Anyone want a used car salesman who can't seem to remember three simple facts? Good at varmint huntin' on running trails too. Lousy at math but sure knows how to fix good Texas high hair.

  14. Crap. Guess that means he'll be back here in Texas now. Maybe he's shown enough of his stupidity in his national bid that somebody else can get him out of the governors office. It'll have to be a republican (it is Texas) but at least maybe it won't be him.
