Let me see I was going to write about three things – football, the weather, and Oops! Maybe Captain Hairspray? Don’t tell me you didn’t see this post coming. Governor Goodhair, you continue to make Texas history. First you are the longest reigning governor ever and now you are the first indictment since James “Pa” Ferguson in 1917. There is a similarity between the two. Governor Ferguson was indicted for wanting to get rid of University of Texas faculty and officials because he did not like them. You want to get rid of the Travis County District Attorney because she is a Democrat, granted a highly intoxicated one at one time. Any high school civics teacher knows you overstepped your power. You do not get to govern Travis County agencies. The county does. That is called an abuse of power. It wasn’t that you vetoed the agency and withheld its funding, it is that you said you were going to if she did not resign. You do not get to do that. You don’t get to rule on county employees even if they are drunk. Speaking of abuse of power, I see where your defense attorney for this action makes $450 PER HOUR of state funds. Yikes.I knew I should have been a lawyer. I hope having to go to the court house to get finger printed and have your mug shot taken and then go to trial does not distract you from your war with Mexico or delays your trip to New Hampshire with its 17 miles of coastland. State officials have estimated the deployment of Texas National Guard troops along the border cost $12 million per month. PER MONTH! Well, Captain Hairspray, you lawyer yourself up, guard the border, and I will just bend over, but keep my voter registration card current. Only parsley, sage, Rosemary and thyme will tell.
