It was kind of funny to see Hutchinson's campaign raising these issues:

What’s bizarre is why Rick Perry, after raising taxes, growing the size of government and attempting a half-million acre private property land grab, would think that he’s entitled to a third term,” Sadosky said.

You might be thinking of Bob Smith, formerly a US Senator from NH who had tried to run in Florida. He tried running for president, left the GOP, rejoined the GOP and moved to FL. Putz.

Kay seems to be out of her mind. Perry at least SEEMS to be talking the talk (from what I can tell 2,000+ miles away).

Looks like choosing the least RINO-ish of the two, which looks to be Perry.

All you need to know is Geraldo endorsed Hutchison. Heard it the last time I watched him, he ranted on Perry like a left wing lunatic, around 4/15 I think about the 10th amendment stuff. Geraldo is freaking clueless.

Hutchison announced Wednesday that she would leave her Senate seat this fall to concentrate on her challenge to Perry in the Republican primary for governor, which will be held in March. She criticized Perry for seeking a third full term, saying 15 years – which Perry would serve if he won the term and completed it – was too long for one person to be governor.

And she suggested that she might stay in Senate if Perry decided to leave the race, which the governor has given no indication of doing.

Pot, kettle. Sen. has already served more years in her office than Perry would in his—were he to win re-election.

Why does KBH think she needs to stay in politics? If she's tired of being in DC she should go home and spend time with the kid(s) she adopted. We don't need KBH.

I will never vote for KBH again for anything.

Katheryn Harris was NOT nutty as you acuse.

She was a good conservative; and therefore, the Republicans were afraid of her like they are afraid of Palin. Hence, they gave her little support.

Yeah. When she first started in Texas politics, KBH was pretty cool. Over the last few years, she's gotten odd. Sometimes people get this way as they rise in power. Most of us keep our weirdness in check because a lot of people can tell us no. When we get to a position where we're surrounded by "yes" people, our eccentricities start showing. She may also be having some age related mental issues.

On her call for Perry to leave the race, once Perry canned the Trans-Texas Corridor, his popularity started bouncing back. She may be looking at internal polling that shows her losing, and she's looking for a graceful way out. Perry lost popularity when he quit toeing the conservative line. People in Texas won't go to the left of Perry.

A quick note on Kinky, as he's been making noise about another run. Kinky is a joke with a couple of good quotes. You can get the equivalent of Kinky's platform by walking into the Mule Lips Bar, buying any drunk a double bourbon and asking him how to fix government. As proof, he said if he was governor he'd make Willie Nelson his energy czar. Willie's a seventy some-odd year old singer who's been stoned every day for the last forty years and who's only claim to energy knowledge is underwriting a fuel called Bio-Willie that as far as I know was sold at Carl's Corner and no place else. Carl's Corner is another Texas oddity. It's a Truck Stop that incorporated itself and became a town.

Carl's Corner did open, and has been around for quite a while. I've never stopped there, and all I know are rumors about it.

What I'm pretty sure of is that Carl Cornelius was a friend of Willie Nelson, and Willie had a couple of his 4th of July picnics there. Cornelius incorporated the town because Hill County was dry and he wanted to be able to sell alcohol.

When I drove by there a few years ago, there was a "trucker's chapel" set up in the parking lot. I heard that Carl's son had been killed in a drunk driving accident (don't know whether the son or the other driver was drunk or anything else) and that the incident had broken Carl, and he decided to quit selling alcohol and let the place fall apart. Now, the son getting killed and everything is rumor; I have no idea whether it's true or not. I do know that Carl's Corner went from this outlaw advertising on the highway to having a Christian chapel in the parking lot, and that I never see it open anymore.

I know Willie started the Bio Willie thing, it eventually was sold at around twenty stations, but that most of them have quit selling it, and the billboard advertising it on I35 is gone. I have no idea if it's even in business anymore.

KBH will never get my vote for governor. She is not up to the job of running Texas. The last few years she has started to remind me of Texas’s version of Susan Collins or Kathleen Blanco...lol. She is weak and ineffective. Don’t believe me...just watch her on CSPAN anytime she is up on the floor or in committee. She doesn’t have the fight needed to protect this great state from the encroaching marxist interests emanating from DC.

Perry will get my vote and the votes of my family.

She came to our county for a meet and greet once. It was when there was so much outrage at Hillary’s health care and other things. When I spoke to her I said something complimentary to her compared to Hillary and she looked at me with a blank stare. It was odd and I have never had a good feeling about her since. I took it that she didn’t like me talking negatively about a sister or the first lady or something. Maybe she just didn’t like being there. I know the state party convention delegates have tried to come down on her for her abortion support so she may have lumped me in with that group (which is fine with me). Maybe she is just elite and aloof and in her own world.

I hope she does not run for governor because I don’t think it will do any good for conservative principles in Texas and certainly not the Republican party.

KBH has been sipping too much kool aid. She's getting a Hussein complex trying to dictate her will on others. I told her office when she let open the doors for the law suits over the border that she'd never see another vote from this house and this latest proves I made the right decision.

You do know that Gov. Goodhair was coined by that liberal columnist woman who recently died. She was a die hard leftist democrat from Texas...Linda something....who tried to write in down home, hokey Texas vernacular. I would never use that term. Are you one of those people with a Texas Democrat bumper sticker on your car?

BTW, Bob Schiefer’s brother is running as a democrat for governor. They are digging up some fossils but at least he is no Kinky.

Willie's Place/Carl's Corner is operating and been going through a renovation process. It now has a 750 seat auditorum for concerts, restruant, store, and is the production center for Willie's Place, XM13. Willie bought the radio Channel/program a few years ago, moved the operation to Carl's Corner where it now broadcast from. I'm not sure if they have completed all the work they started or intended to do.

I really don’t think the Aggie Yell Leader wants to get into a comparison of years sucking at the public teat with the Tea Sip Cheer Leader. KBH has 23 yrs based upon your listing and Perry has 24 yrs, http://www.votesmart.org/bio.php?can_id=15373 .. So they both are about equal.

Thanks Meek. I don’t think KBH will present a problem unless the guv really steps in it before the election - and I don’t really see that happening either. Overall, and IMHO, Perry has put in an acceptable performance for us over the years. We could do a lot worse. At least he hasn’t acted “stupidly”. ;^)

Katheryn Harris was NOT nutty as you accuse.

She was a good conservative; and therefore, the Republicans were afraid of her like they are afraid of Palin. Hence, they gave her little support.

Add my amen to that! Kathryn Harris was one brave woman who stood up for the law in the 2000 election debacle and against some very vicious attacks. Devane seems to believe the Leftist attacks. I was amazed when W and the Republicans abandoned her.

I expressed an opinion that is shared by many. Just review the Florida election she lost when GOP voters voted against her in droves. Just because she carried out a daring deed, does not insure her for life. She had a seat in congress that was safe for as long as she wished. But, against the overwhelming opinion she ran for the Senate and was trounced, but good. She is doomed to live out her life in obscurity rather than living her congressional gift she received because she did a good deed. Katheryn Harris was/is a first-class nutjob.

“She had a seat in congress that was safe for as long as she wished.”

With all due apologies, then I am confused. The one I am thinking of did not have a seat in congress. I believe she was attorny general of the state?

The one I am thinking of was a lawyer in Florida in the middle of the Bush flap in 2000.

Please clue me in.

Thank you.
