    Houston (as in Houstn, Texas!) has a new mayor who is not only female -- but horror of horrors -- she is openly gay! See: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/13/us/politics/13houston.html?th&emc=th

    The Southern Baptist Coalition must be grinding its teeth to the gums right now.

    Now this all this winning candidate needs to do is actually manage the city.

    It's a good thing, y'all.

    There are several high profile gay/lesbian public officials in Texas in the big metro areas. In Dallas County (the first county to turn red in the 1960s and the first to turn blue in the 2000's), we have a Hispanic Sherriff, who is female and who is an open lesbian. And who has looked down both barrell of a heavily funded anti gay campaign a year ago that she won by 8% points.

    All Dems in Texas are being helped by a Civil War in the State GOP. They look alot like the Dems of the 1970s, who turned this into one of the reddest states in the union.

    I heard when Rick Perry found out he had to call his hair people because all the body went out of it and i hate to think what happened to the dallas baptists when they heard.
