Let's give them something to talk about

A lot of the blogs I read typically speak of Texas with disdain and don't feel that it has much to offer to progressive politics in America. On the contrary, I think that if we can make any inroads in education, health care, green energy, and socially liberal policies then it will be a sign that the pendulum is swinging away from the Republicans' dog-eat-dog version of capitalism.

People still fondly remember that Texas used to be a Democratic state, and I don't think it would take much for others to forgive Texas for its pollution, greedy energy companies, and worthless governor-cum-president. These blemishes came about from a handful cunning, cynically manipulative people (Karl Rove cut his teeth on dirty politics here), and I hope now that everyone sees how masterful these unpatriotic bastards have been at manipulating the system they have a bit more pity and patience with our state's slow progress.
