I Love Yew, Texas

Republicans pretend our politics doesn't belong in the outhouse. Feh.
I Love Yew, Texas

Fayette County is a cozy little place between me and Austin with some of the best kolaches and people anywhere around.

My friends Vickie and Cecil live in Fayette County and they just love to tell me some of the great stories from their area. They have a doozy this time. Outside of being friends, I attended the Democratic National Convention in 2012 with Vickie and Cecil.

Cecil, who is a retired Army Colonel, got a prolonged laugh over what’s consequential to Republicans. It seems that a long-time voting location is being changed because Republicans refuse to vote anywhere there’s an outhouse.

Now you’d think with the amount of crap Republicans have to wade around in just to meet their candidates in person, they’d welcome a nice clean outhouse. But, nooooo …

I’ve attached the article from the Fayette County Newspaper that hit the stands today. You know you live in rural Texas when there’s a picture of an outhouse on your newspaper’s front page.

Republicans are moving their primary election further away but Democrats have paid for a handicapped assessable pot-a-potty to be on site to keep the voting location convenient to their voters — all eight of them — because every vote counts.

You may need to right click and open the article in a new window or save it and enlarge it. I uploaded it actual size.
