Woot! Delegate To State Again!
Posted 22 April 2012 - 02:37 AM
Another reason is that our political calendar is all screwed up this year. Normally, we have our primary and precinct conventions early in March, county conventions later in March, and state convention in June. This year, however, nothing worked as planned. Because of lawsuits over redistricting, the primaries were postponed, originally to early April. Then the Supreme Court threw out the interim Congressional maps, causing the primaries to be again delayed, now set for May 29. But we went ahead and held our county conventions today, April 21. Normally, delegates to county are elected at the precinct conventions held the evening after the primary, but this year all you had to do to be a delegate was to show up and sign an oath of affiliation with the Democratic Party. (Actually, Travis County had an online registration option that worked really well.) Then, as usual during the county convention, precincts caucused to elect their delegates to go on to Houston.
And I also got re-deputized as a volunteer voter registrar.
What y'all up to? Let's kick some GOP butt!

Here's hoping that we can kick the Re-thuglicans all the way back to the proverbial stone-age, which is precisely where they would like to send women, blacks, LGBTers, all hyphenated-American citizens, college students, domesticated pets, and, as a general rule, anyone who neither runs nor is invested in hedge funds -
A more anti-humanitarian bunch of lunatics I have seldom seen in my lifetime.

Ted Cruz has won today's Re-thuglican primary [to take Senate seat being vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison].
Here is a prescient citation from one of mad-dog Cruz's fanatical supporters: “We need some conservative Christians in office. . .and someone who will fight. . .against abortion."
There exists already one theocracy on this planet. It is very sad that, in their abject ignorance and intolerance, the tea-baggers would create another.
