4. You have to have pretty thick skin....

to be a liberal Dem in Texas. The large cities can be an oasis (our Houston mayor is openly gay) but ignorance and anti intellectualism run deep. Now add all the BS testing and you destroy the joy of learning for students and the teacher moral is in the crapper.

The GOP had trashed the moderate GOP and we are still recovering from the redistricting we went through during the Bush years. The good news is that the GOP in the House lost their super majority. The last session, the Dems didn't even bother to show up-what was the point. This year we stand a chance. We got rid of some obnoxious folk.

Oh, and BTW, let me apologize in advance for Ted Cruz. He is a tea party obnoxious prick that will be in the Senate. You know it is bad when I am hoping John Cornyn can muzzle the jerk.
