Y’all, it’s Dan Patrick, the Texas Lt. Governor again.

He sashayed down his well-worn path to Fox News this morning and had this to say

“All those protesters last night, they turned around and ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to protect them. What hypocrites!” an audibly emotional Patrick said.

Okay, so here I am. I object to any policeman killing anybody in cold blood. I object to police violence. So, does that mean I should not expect police protection?

Idiot. He’s an idiot. Even Governor Abbott knew we’d had enough shooting without adding his mouth to the gunfire chorus.

But not Dan Patrick. Oh no, not Dan. And while he was on his Mouth ‘O Terror Tour this morning, he orders the state flag to be flown at half-staff because he’s “acting Governor.”

Obviously, Dan doesn’t understand that “acting Governor” means more than acting like you’re a governor. It’s kinda rude that he didn’t tell Governor Abbott that there had been a coup.

Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered that Texas flags across the state be lowered to half-staff in honor of the Dallas police shooting victims.

It is becoming increasingly hard to embarrass Texas but somehow we manage to find the biggest pecan in the sack of nuts.
