I have always been a die-hard republican. I was a ditto-head before Rush Limbaugh was cool. I used to have lofty goals of working in politics and changing my world for the better, one well-crafted speech at a time.
But our governor drives me absolutely batty. I see him as a biased secessionist good old boy who needs a reality check. Apparently he’s been too busy refusing stimulus funds to notice that we’re in a recession. That Texas’ unemployment rate is the highest it has been in 22 years, up 3% since last summer.
