The weather outside is frightful...

...But it's not nearly as ugly as the way Republicans are melting down here in Harris County. I've been thinking all day about how DA Chuck Rosenthal came to the decision not to prosecute Texas Supreme Court Justice David Medina or his wife, Francisca Medina, for torching their house, destroying a neighbor's home and causing extensive damage to two other homes. It seems to me that this decision comes straight out of the Republican Party of Texas and Rosenthal was eager to oblige the (order? recommendation? they asked nicely?) to not prosecute.

This brings to mind an e-mail smear campaign aimed at the probable Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate - State Rep. Rick Noriega, that is currently being waged by the RPT.

It would be nice if the Dems were so inclined to inform Texans just how the GOP operates when they control most of the elected offices. The cover-ups and various scandals in the Houston area alone are embarrassing for Republicans. I say we spread the wealth and paint every Texas Republican with the dirty paint brush that is Chuck Rosenthal. Or Judge Pat Shelton. Or Justice David Medina. Or Precinct 4 Commissioner Jerry Eversole. Or Sherriff Tommy Thomas.
