I guess this is kind of nice, but seeming as how this is in a Texas newspaper, doesn't mean much. The only question about Texas is do we win it by 10% or 20%?
Living in Houston I read their editorial page every morning to get my blood pressure up. Its staff editorial writers (Cragg Hines, Clay Robinson) and editorial board are bent towards the Molly Ivins school of journalism ... liberal, moronic, Bush hating.
So, while it confuses me to see them print this, it's still refreshing.
It means something, though I'm not sure what. The five largest newspapers in this state are far more liberal than the population. The Houston paper is one or the worst two.
