    Gov. Oops, O Canada Cruz, and now Lt. Gov. Dweebhurst: Our Texas Republican Bounty Is Boundless.

    There is a silver lining in the David-Dewhurst-calls-the-cops thing. It's just more fun with Republicans. Nobody thinks it's terrible that the lieutenant governor called the Allen cops to get his relative out of jail. Anybody would do that. It's not even that Dewhurst tried to pull rank. Everybod ...

    The Mesquite Rodeo is Bringing in an Obama Clown

    Tuffy Gessling didn't mean to offend anyone when he put on an Obama mask and did his thing as a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair.

    Dear Miami, We Hate You. And Your Sports. Love, Dallas

    Miami has Colin Farrel's lame mustache. We have shirtless Matthew Mcconaughey. ​Recently our brotherly blog down here in Miami concocted a list of reasons why Miami is a better city than Dallas.

    A Sound Bite in the Ass at Yesterday's Trinity Toll Road Debate

    Wow. A Dallas Morning News two-fer today. On both the front page and the Metro front, stories about the Trinity toll road issue that represent more or less the exact opposite of the truth.
