Texas Gubernatorial Primary

Someone in my comments asked for my take on today's primaries in Texas.
On the GOP side, there's gay Gov. Rick the Prick Perry versus Mommie Dearest Kay Bailey Hutchison, and on the Democratic side there's bland Bill White out of Houston against hair products zillionaire Farouk Shami, who was born in fuckin' Palestine, of all places.
The real race is between the two Republican jackals, because this is Texas.
They ain't no way anyone is voting for an Arab on the Democratic side, no matter how rich he is, so that's that.
Anyway, I didn't bother to vote because Bill White will win the Democratic primary for sure. And even if a miracle happens and Farouk Shami wins, I'll vote for him in the general election--or anyone--running against whichever GOP slimeball wins.
They say Perry is favored to beat Hutchison, which tells me decisively that Texas Republicans are fucking idiots who need a good horse whippin.'

We care so little about the whole political process at this point that we're going to watch the final season of The Wire and not listen to one word about the political b.s.

But if Perry wins, look out America, he's going to run for Prez in 2012. Maybe with Palin as VP.

i haven't seen any numbers yet, but there are some articles saying that, if there's a runoff, it might be between gov. little ricky goodhair and teabagger funky shrew medina instead of kbh. by the way, i paid tribute to the texas primary over at the raisin tonight.

Oh, I forgot about Medina.
I think Gay Rick probably has all the teabaggers sewed up--after all, he knows from teabagging.

Looks as if you're in for four more blow-dried years.

Double yow!

Had Farouk Shami been born in Palestine, Texas, that would've been a weird coincidence. Alas, he was born on the West Bank; so, yea, he was doomed in Texas.

Well that sums it up nicely!

shit! i was hoping there would be a runoff, and there would be 6 more weeks of them ripping each other to shreds. i'm inconsolable.

I thought Texas Republicans were smarter than they are.
K.B. Hutchison was the lesser of two evils, but I guess the rightwing preferred the grumpy gay guy.
Makes me wanna vomit.
