Houston paper says it’s sorry it endorsed Ted Cruz


Precedents for THIS KIND OF THING are few and far between:

The editorial page of the Houston Chronicle expressed some buyer’s remorse on Tuesday for endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in last year’s election.

In the editorial, the Chronicle lamented that Cruz did not take after his predecessor, fromer Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX).

“When we endorsed Ted Cruz in last November’s general election, we did so with many reservations and at least one specific recommendation – that he follow Hutchison’s example in his conduct as a senator,” the editorial read. “Obviously, he has not done so. Cruz has been part of the problem in specific situations where Hutchison would have been part of the solution.



  1. Pat,

    Talk about drive by journalism! Your blog lacks the necessary facts to make the story credible.

    Please cite specific examples of when Senator Cruz has “been part of the problem” while contrasting to former (not “fromer” as you seem to think it’s spelled) Senator Hutchison being “part of the solution.”

    Perhaps I should issue a statement of remorse for the time I wasted listening to on WROK in the mornings. Come to think of it, who the hell cares about your affection for the song “Lake Shore Drive.” Remember, you played that song on numerous occasions. Also of equal “unimportance” is your love of the Beatles and your discussion of some album cover of theirs.

    Please go crawl back under the rock from which you came!

  2. Gary: My misspelling of “former” was a mere typographical error. But your clumsy phrasing of “the time I wasted listening to on WROK” is just plain bad writing.

    So, touche, buddy boy.

    Oh, and your reference to “drive by journalism” is so Limbaughesque. Or is it Palinesque?

    Gary “Whoever The Hell He Is” — he’s not man enough to tell us his last name so he can be held more accountable for his laughable comments — is just like his hero El Rushbo: pissed off to beat hell because a black man (who is half white, by the way) was elected to the presidency of the United States of America by an incontrovertible margin of victory, not once [like Boy George managed in his second run) but twice. Such an unbelievable thing would never have happened if southern Missouri’s favorite country, the Confederate States of America had won the American Civil War.

  4. Dan: I know Gary’s last name, but I’ll never tell. You couldn’t even beat it out of me. I have vowed to protect the true identities of our resident nutcases. You see, if I revealed Gary’s surname, the authorities might feel it necessary to track him down and throw a net over him in the interest of public safety. I can’t allow that to happen. I hope you understand.

  5. Patrick, I’ve always known there’s no such thing as anonymous behavior on the internet, and that our full names could be obtained, but I didn’t think you’d have access to that information. I know, maybe I should say I suspect, you can track IP Id’s and know who might be changing their identity if they’re 86’d, but I’m curious how our full names are obtained by a non NSA employee?

  6. Gary: Your most recent comment has been withheld from publication because of too much profanity. Any more such offenses from you will result in your banishment from this blog altogether. And don’t argue with me about this.
