"Caucus Rustling." Or, How to Do the "Texas Two-Step." Or, Not.

Why didn't these folks make one of these shirts for Texas? Because we'd buy one, no doubt.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Over at The Huffington Post, Mayhill Fowler has just posted a piece headlined "Confusion Rampant Over Texas 'Primacaucus' Rules" -- which, if my mother's phone call of minutes ago is any indication, sounds about right. Also, sounds like at least one local network affiliate has the same questions concerning tomorrow's primary vote and the precinct convention that follows at 7 p.m.:

As a questioner from Dallas TV said in a conference call with the Obama Campaign Friday, "we are getting calls into the station; people are confused. Is there going to be anything else on election night?" You'd think Texans would know by now.

But if you don't, Fowler fills you in to great detail. Also, she predicts "chaos" tomorrow night. And "rule disputes." And fun! --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
