The Daily Show

last night broke the news that Chris Bell (and Kinky Friedman and Carole Straylander Keehorn Jingleheimer Schmidt) had lost to incumbent Governor Rick Perry. The GOP's mascot trundled across the screen and took a dump on Bell's forehead, which prompted the studio audience to collectively mutter a disgusted though bemused, "Awwwww."

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

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.
