    when I see some polling showing Davis tied or ahead. I fully expect, despite this kind of crap, that Abbott will win by more than 10 points. A lot of people actually LIKE this kind of thing.

      But some people don't, and some of those normally vote Republican.

      Perry/GWB took great pains not to run around offending women and Latinos.  There was a reason why Perry was offering in-state tuition to illegal immigrants who grew up in the state, and it's not because he has a heart.  Texas Republicans long understood that turning Latinos into a bloc vote for Democrats was a bad idea, but Abbott seems to have missed that lesson.

      It isn't 1990 any more, by any stretch, but I'm smelling a lot of Clayton Williams in the Abbott campaign.
