    Now if it could just end with Bentley out the door we'd really be hitting our stride for the day.

    Interesting that Bentley appoints an AG that may or may not have a criminal investigation going into his activities within his "activities".

    Bentley may not approve of gambling, but the Luvernor has hit a political jackpot. No wonder he felt no shame bringing RCM and her cuckolded husband to D.C. for the inauguration.
    Not only did he get Big Luther on his side, he also gets to appoint a new AG, who will certainly not have any interest in continuing any investigations that may have been in progress. Probably made some deals with the bootlicking legislators who wanted the senate seat, too, to get impeachment off the table.
    They're gonna have to move Wanda's desk for sure now.

    And here I thought that Texas politics was really odd............................

    Well, one big reason I don't miss living back there. At least in Texas, we do get it right................sometimes.

    "Who is this man?"
    "Major Danby, sir."
    "Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."

    "Take Major Danby out and shoot him."
    "I don't think you can do that, Dad."
    "Why not? And stop calling me 'Dad'."

    I thought Texas was full of buck Strickland types in politics.

    Well, the normal path is senator to lobbyist. Strange has broken the mold. From Lobbyist to AG to senator and then, I'm sure, back to lobbyist, but a bigger and better one...

    Having worked for Luther before moving back to DC to join fearless leader's team, the state is both very lucky and very unlucky. It's lucky because he will make a great Senator who isn't afraid to go against anybody when the state's interests are at stake. (any notion that this is some corrupt deal is tabloid trash from the worst media outfit in America, al.com). We're unlucky because he would have been governor and could have finally provided the kind of political leadership we need in Montgomery. The problem is he's head and shoulders better than any other politician in the state, but there's only one of him.
