the "ayes" of Texas are upon you

While Governor Rick Perry is basking in his 65 percent delusion, in which football coaches retain their jobs while librarians lose theirs, there are others who think they can do a better job as governor.

Never mind that Perry's two special sessions failed to produce an education bill or anything else that resembled meaningful legislation, he's still portraying himself as a man of the people.

So who dares to pit themselves against Governor Goodhair?

There's Bob Gammage, who thinks that his reputation of opposing corruption will help him beat MoFo at the polls.

Then there's Carole "One Tough Grandma" Strayhorne, and Kinky "Why the Hell Not" Friedman.

Add to the mix Chris "Redistrict This" Bell and you've got an interesting race.

In any event, the governor's race in Texas is the one to watch.

Regardless of who wins it (other than Perry), it can only be an improvement over the current administration, whose only goal seems to be lining the pockets of those who've contributed to the current governor's campaign.

If Strayhorne wins, the education system wins.

If Kinky wins, we've proved that politics are a farce.

If Bell wins, there's a good chance that we'll have medical insurance for everyone.

And if Gammage wins, then it seems that everyone in Texas wins overall.

I'd say that's 4 - 1 odds that Texas can be improved in the next election.

Make sure you make your voice heard and vote next election day.

It's really up to you.
