Mob has Dewhurst at a disadvantage

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst has reason to worry about mobs. They’re coming at him from all sides, and some of them are unruly.

-snip-

And there’s a line of other politicians, fellow Republicans especially, who want to send Dewhurst away come next year’s party primary. For sheer brutality, mobs have nothing on Texas political parties when primary elections are in the offing.

Like an old-time movie mob marching with torches and pitchforks to confront the evil monster and growing in numbers along the way, this one added another big-name Republican on Thursday, Sen. Dan Patrick of Houston. Patrick and Dewhurst have a history of conflict and reconciliation that’s clearly back to open conflict.

Already in the get-Dewhurst GOP mob headed for the primary are Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples. They, and now Patrick, brand Dewhurst as an ineffective leader.

1. Yes, the "mobs" of women have one great advantage over Dewhurst -

they have working brains and hearts!

Wish that cold-eyed Teahadist WOULD just retire.
