"Houston Millionaire Helps Bell"
A little good news from the Lone Star State:

snip

"It's not just small donations. Houston trial lawyer John O'Quinn pledged $1 million to Bell's campaign. O'Quinn also promised to come up with $4 million more."

1. Great news.
Hope he comes through with the other $4 mil. That will buy a lot of tv time and yard signs.

2. Now he has enough for a charisma implant
He makes ANGELIDES look posiively charismatic. However, he showed improvement at the debate and Kinky looked freakish. But THANKS to John O'QUINN!!1 Unfortunately, 30 MILLION $$$ couldn't do the trick for DINO Tony SANCHEZ, so...?

The idiot "Liberal" students in Austin are going for Kinky, who is an IDIOT!!!1 They really believe "There is NO DIFFERENCE" between the 2 parties. They really believe they themselves are "smart". They are SO ignorant of their own history and even recent history, like, the chapter on Jesse VENTURA, not to mention NADIR.

4. The TX Governor race is about numbers, period.
TX has an INCREDIBLY weak governor. Yeah, it would look good for us to get a (D) in the Governor's chair, but it won't have much impact on the state one way or another. The Lieutenant Governor has the executive power in TX.

5. He's already beefed up his TV commercial air time since getting the money
It's now Perry AD, Strayhorn AD and Bell AD!

In Texas the majority disapprove of our current governor (Perry) yet thanks to the asinine independents he may well get back in office.
:banghead:
