Okay, Texans are arrogant

And insular. It's not just the fact that we were our own nation for 9 years, though that doesn't hurt. It's an attitude that arises when it's a more than a day's driving to get out of the state. This is a pretty good article on Texas and its political influence in Salon, but as is typical with these articles about Texas, they put all the junk about drawls and cowboy hats and the Alamo at the front and mention that half of D.C. now is Texan towards the end.

Look, Bush's arrogance has little to do with his being a Texan and everything to do with being a spoiled brat from a family that positions itself as the royal family of America. As this article points out, he's no Lyndon Johnson. Johnson's attitude was less "Fuck you!" and more "Listen to me, I'm the boss here." More importantly, Bush isn't what Johnson was--a born and bred Texan. The article won't come out and say it, but I will. Bush is a fake. His accent is fake. Cowboy hats look stupid on him. The big belt buckles are an affectation that I guarantee he'll drop the second he's out of office. He doesn't politic like a Texan, but just hides behind people who do. Good Texas politicians know everything that is going on--Bush tries to know nothing. Good Texas politicians stand up to their critics, but Bush just comes off as whining when he addresses the few criticisms that penetrate the force field his handlers have built around him.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.

Well, what can I said? The most of my friends, think the belt buckles are an affectation that I guarantee he'll drop the second he's out of office, something like you history but is totally true.
