Wow... That's Convincing!

It's All In Knowing Which Buttons To Push...

I heard a radio ad yesterday for a guy named Faulk that's running for Congress as a Republican in the 18th Congressional District.

I don't think he's got a snowball's chance in hell of winning in that heavily gerrymandered district, but I'm going to send him a few dollars based solely on his ad campaign.

See, the Texas 18th Congressional District is the stomping grounds of Queen Sheila aka Sheila Jackson Lee aka the Mouth of the South. She has inflicted herself with her imperial attitude and radical leftist agenda on the 18th District for years, and her trademark political maneuver is that she never fails to insert herself into the scene whenever a TV camera is rolling. You've probably seen her race down the aisle to be the first in line to greet Bush whenever he addresses Congress.

Indeed, it's said that the most dangerous place to be in America is in between Queen Sheila and the TV camera. No telling how many people have been steamrolled over the years for making that mistake.

Faulk's ad asks the simple question about donating to his campaign.

"How much is it worth to you to never see Sheila Jackson Lee on TV again?"

Man, I nearly burned a hole in my checkbook with the speed I wrote that donation check...
