tea bagger cruz to replace relatively reasonable conservative hutchison

in the Texas delegation to the US Senate. His opponent was the more conservative than Hutchinson, but not insane, David dewhurst.

The right wing populist march continues in the south.

God speed the day when demographics take my beloved state the way of New Mexico.

1. It's appropriate that Gore Vidal has exited this life just now.

What a polar opposite to this vapid person who advertised against Dewhurst using "moderate" pejoratively, was the great man of wit and charm.

2. i know they all do that

as if moderation- a universally accepted vitue- is a vice. My opponent is NOT an immoderate freak like me! Now I know that word is loaded here, as it is applied to blue dogs. But in reality blue dog Democrats hold positions that used to be on the Republican right.

3. In some ways, he's an improvement

 

He's against the Patriot Act and the NDAA. The establishment wanted the other guy.

If Romney gets elected (heaven forbid) lets see if he maintains those libertarian positions.

4. Do Democrats have a chance to beat him.

Is Houston in his district? Could that be enough to beat him?

7. That would be sweet. Republicans don't expect to lose this seat.

I don't really expect them to either. I don't know how area around Houston is what the is the population of the area etc.. Still, one can dream of the outrage if a Republican loses this seat.

9. The "district" of a Senator is the entire state, so yes. /eom

8. Sorry, but Hutchison's orbit is nowhere near reasonable. (Anyone further out must be certifiable.)

11. Now, you would think..

.. that this kind of tea party candidacy would fire up the DNC
and the Texas Democratic party to great heights of campaign
organization and money.

That's what you would think ....
