    wannabe is Greg Abbott ... Texas Monthly's current cover dubs him next governor. Bleah.

    (BTW: for those of you who don't know, Paul Burka and the Texas Monthly staff are as hardcore far-right as it gets.)

        they're a tad handicapped because there's a limited pool of Dems in Texas who are willing to talk about things in public.

        But TM has gone in the tank for the likes of Perry, Cornyn and Cruz, and it's been mostly the last 10 years or so (I think they got all hot and bothered about Texas being chic again when w got selected, then figured out they'd bought the classic pig in a poke). Their rightward leanings began during the Scarborough/Scarbrough scandals, really, though.

          in Texas like we used to.

          Harte-Hanks newspapers, for one thing.
          Jim Hightower in a statewide office for another.

          There's a hell of a lot of imported money keeping us a Gee O Pee satrapy.
