The Weekly Wrangle

The Texas Progressive Alliance was up early this morning to watch Curiosity stick its landing on Mars, and salutes NASA for its outstanding job as it brings you this week's roundup.

Off the Kuff rounded up the Republican and Democratic primary runoff results.  

BossKitty at TruthHugger was on a roll this week. Always disgusted at the deliberate distractions from urgent issues by political campaigns, the contempt red-lined in Candidate State of Denial: Why Can't They Buy Rain?, and Bitter Governors Screw 6 Million People out of health insurance. BossKitty also mourns the passing of a past co-worker named Sally Ride.

Local property tax elections are the result of state leaders shirking their duty and passing the buck to local ISD's. WCNews at Eye on Williamson posts that the plan to defund public education continues.

Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart choked again last Tuesday night trying to count election results, and PDiddie at Brains and Eggs doesn't believe any excuse the man makes at this point.  

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wants everyone to know that Henry Cuellar is a rat.

Over at TexasKaos, lightseeker rags on about Poisonous Hypocrisy and Those Who Practice It. Rick Perry and Reagan and Palin have more in common than people know.

Neil at Texas Liberal posted that the very first historical marker at the San Jacinto Battlefield Park just outside Houston -- where Texas Independence was won -- notes the gift of cannons from the people of Cincinnati. Full self-reliance is a myth... most especially in Texas.
