The Houston Democrat lost to insurance agent Borris Miles, 53.5 percent to 46.5 percent. Edwards
is perhaps best known for his long tenure (he’s served in the House
since 1978) and for his legislation making Juneteenth a state holiday.
I think he is actually more well-known for being a megalomanical f---tard who anointed himself protector of all our morality. But I could be wrong. People at least know about the sexy cheerleader bill, if not the statue he erected of himself.
More to the point, though, is how did she became such trailer trash? She's turned into that girl in the trailer park who wins the lottery. You know the kind. She's got a big house and all the money in the world, but she married a complete loser who could have been the stunt double in Joe Dirt. And K-Fed always seems to be looking for a job, he just never finds it. Just one baby later, her looks and any appeal she had to any other human being is gone and it turns out that being rich doesn't make you a suitable mother.
I really hope to God they make a Lifetime Movie out of her biography so that young girls can be warned to never imitate her.
(Ed. note: The AP picture of her in the news story is just too flattering. Instead, here is a video link from The Superficial that shows her in all her bloated glory.)
The second film in Don Coscarelli’s Bubba trilogy* is back from the dead, as supernatural forces seem to be coming together to make Bubba Nosferatu a reality. "The project has a life of its own," Coscarelli tells Sci Fi Wire. "People seem to want it. We just have to get it finished." The “we,” of course, is Coscarelli and Joe R Lansdale, who wrote the original story that Bubba Ho-Tep was based on.
I usually don't go in for all this prequel business, but if that's how it has to be, then that is how it has to be. Now get to filming!
I call shenanigans on the Texas Secretary of State!
While it is probably not his fault that Barbara Radnofsky's name was left off the ballot in Maverick County (There's really a Maverick County?), I'm still going to blame him. It's just politically expediant for me.
The question now is: Did this happen in anoy other counties and it just hasn't been reported yet? The company that did the ballots in Maverick did so for 144 other counties, according to the reporting done by Vince. Maybe it is just an anomaly. It's entirely possible it is an isolated incident.
Even so, in a run-off election with turnout as low as it is, this might make a big difference. Certainly worthy of a legal challenge in my book. We'll see how things turn out as the night progresses.
Of course, it is on a day that I don't think I can be in Austin. Just my luck.
FEINGOLD TO CAMPAIGN FOR TEXAS CONGRESSIONAL
CANDIDATE AND HOLD‘LISTENING SESSION’

I guess sometime before the polls close today I should go up to my local junior high gym and pick candidates for today's run-off election. BOR has a list of endorsements you can use if you still haven't made up your mind.
10. Wear a t-shirt with Bob Ross' picture on it. 9. Let a girl see your Batman underwear. 8. Never try to say "Nice shoes. Wanna f---?" if you've been drinking. One too many Jack and Cokes and it comes out "Nice f---, wanna shoes?" 7. Have your mom follow you around calling you 'Nay-Nay' everytime you talk to a girl (I guess she doesn't want grandchildren... ever!) 6. Never tell a girl you would like to be wearing her underwear in the morning. 5. Don't try to have a serious conversation about which porn director you think is better unless she is in the porn business. 4. Wear a t-shirt with your face on it. 3. Admit you have a lifetime subscription to Jugs Magazine. 2. Drop out of community college, become a blogger who still lives with his parents. 1. Don't ever, ever, EVER let a girl see the shrine you've built in your closet to the hottest MILF of them all, Soledad O'Brien.
