Quote for the Day

“Let’s show everybody, this is the Republican Party of Texas. We are not the party of bigots.”

J.T. Edwards, a member of the State Republican Executive Committee advocating for a resolution confirming the Texas GOP’s commitment to religious liberty.

All Red can say is “Nice try.”

Quote for the Day

“I can’t imagine a more transparent and open process than put it on the internet, invite people’s comments and discussion, and then have an open amendment process following debate, and then vote.”

Sen. John Cornyn (TP-Texas).

Senator – How about the process where you don’t negotiate a bill in secret closed-door meetings excluding opposition members and even most members of your party, and where you actually hold committee hearings, get input from experts and the public on both sides, have an open debate and not keep it under wraps until days before a supposed vote? How about that process – would that be more transparent and open?

Quote for the Day

“Let no one be mistaken Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded.  It cannot be pacified or ignored for it will destroy a set of principles that has lifted more people out of poverty than any force in the history of the civilized world and that is the cause of conservatism.”

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, before he saw the light and the possibility of continuing to suck at the government teat as a fixture in a Trump regency.   Red wonders how yesterday’s cancer so quickly becomes the star to which Perry now hitches his wagon.
