This is what passes for news and commentary in the local rag here in the Republic of SE Texas. Aaargh! Once a week this paper runs a list of convictions in the local courts by name and charge and the first thing that some idiot spews in the comments are that they are all "Obama supporters". Any comments to the contrary are immediately pounced on by the rabid hoard of idiots screaming "liberal!!". No mystery to me why we are stuck with Cornyn, Hutchison, Brady, Perry, etc.
