My open letter to Governor Rick Perry of the great state of Texas:
Dear Governor Perry:
Over the last couple of years, you have been the topic of conversation within my blog. We call you good hair because you basically look like a local news anchor who doesn't smile. We ran the clip of you saying "adios mofo" to the Texas congressman on local television (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obLGOITasek&feature=related) because it was funny. Those are just the things I can think of without going to much effort. I'm sure we've done other things, such as, well, not voting for you, but that's another story.
Of course, I can't vote, as you people have seen it fit to not allow cats to vote in this "great" country. I'm blaming the Republican party for this form of discrimination, by the way. I'm sure now that Obama, the messiah and savior of democracy in the modern world, will see it fit to allow me to vote, and then we'll see how all of this evolves, bucko!!!
But I digress. . .
Last week while the world sat in fascination of what a complete DUMBASS this Blagojevich character must be, I had an epiphany: we have been really nasty to ole good hair and for what? No one is wire tapping the governor's mansion and recording you trying to sell a senate seat. You don't use the "n" word (or at least to my knowledge-- although that tape with you and the state trooper was kinda nasty), and you aren't attempting to extort newspapers and fire the editors who don't like you. Heck, even your approval rating is higher than four percent.
So anyway, I'd like to thank you for swimming in mediocrity as of now and not getting into any ridiculous trouble.

And now we have an open letter to Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Senior Senator from the great state of Texas
Dear Senator Hutchinson:
You are needed in congress. Do not run for governor.
This does not have anything to do with love for Good Hair. Just stay in DC. You rock.

Can We Talk About the Weather?
Get this: Wednesday it was 28 degrees outside. Snow flurries were all about.
I could not make this up.
Karen's parents' front yard was covered with snow, or so we hear. We got nuthin'.
Considering that Tuesday afternoon it was seventy degrees outside, the "snow" did not stay "snow", if you know what I mean. But this is the gulf coast, and we have to take what we can get.
Canadians, please do not mock our enjoyment of this "snow". We know this is absurd and we simply do not care. The last time we got snow was in like 2004. Last winter Karen didn't even bring out her winter coat. I'm pretty sure shorts could have been worn to Christmas dinner.
An Ethical Dilemma
Karen and I watched Saturday Night Live last night and laughed until we cried at the Governor Paterson skit.
Is it wrong to make fun of a blind dude?
What if the blind dude is governor who was appointed after the elected governor was busted for trying to pay a hooker with money from his checking account?
What if the blind dude had to make a statement days after taking office regarding his history with cocaine and ladies other than his wife, so no one would bring it up to the media later on?
Oh, and by the way: SNL you owe Karen some royalties-- she made the comment about the Governor Paterson thing being like a bad Richard Pryor movie last year.
