Texas Politics: The Letters Have It…Again


You know my penchant for using regular Americans’ letters to the editors of their hometown newspapers to make a point or to support a position or issue. Of course, such is not an entirely objective method, but what is, and who is….

Anyway, here are two gems from today’s Austin American-Statesman:

Re: Oct. 29 article “Cheney will back Hutchison.”

Former Vice President Dick Cheney endorsed U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, and Sarah Palin endorsed Gov. Rick Perry.

Good grief! That ought to be enough warning to Texas voters.

Is it possible that the Perry camp paid Cheney, who can’t shoot straight, to back Hutchison, while the Hutchison camp paid Palin, who can’t think straight, to endorse Perry?
