Perry and Battleground Texas

I’m back in the tundra, for both of y’all who are wondering. There is a big hype, all over the internets and the blogosphere (as President Bush would have called it) about this new organization called “Battleground Texas.” The catchphrase, last I remember, was for the State to be purple by 2016 and  blue shortly thereafter.

Recently, Governor Perry ridiculed the project as being “a pipe dream,” and stating that UT would change their colors to maroon before Texas changes its to purple, or–god forbid–blue. For what it’s worth, I think a reliably blue Texas is a bit of a pipe dream, and I have had it up to here about all these people living in the Austin bubble just assuming that it will happen because of demographics. I know that I’m a cynic, but I have always maintained the position that one should never underestimate the cunning of the GOP to lie, cheat and steal their way to victory, and one should especially never underestimate the sheer ineptitude of Democrats.

Before going all the way to la-la land where Democrats control TX like MA, we should be focusing on finding a competent gubernatorial candidate. My suggestion (actually Kuff’s) is Cecile Richards, but the fellas down at BOR don’t seem to be listening…
