TX-Sen: John Cornyn thinks you're an idiot

Or, perhaps, 11 years old.

Yeah, this is a serious ad, and yeah, this is about John Cornyn's intellectual caliber. Who wouldn't want to have a "brew or two" with the Bad Ass Christian Cowboy Senator? Especially the one who kinda looks like John Lithgow?

For those of you who don't remember the esteemed Senator from Dodge City Texas, he's one of Jack Abramoff's buddies who famously implied on the Senate floor that judges themselves, because of judicial activism, were to blame for a recent spate of violence against them. This was back in those dark days of l'Affair Schiavo, when there were widespread fears that militant social conservatives would take action against the judges who "killed" Terri.

He also had a classic exchange with Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin after the revelations of the Bush Administration's warrantless wiretapping. Cornyn says to Feingold:
"None of your civil liberties matter much after you're dead."

Feingold's reply?
"Give me liberty or give me death."

big john is an ass who won his district thanks the the superrific jerrymandering of one texas hammer.

Noriega is giving him a good run this go-round. I don't know if he'll beat him, but he sure is scaring him.

Oh my good lord... I had no idea anyone serious political figure would put out such an add. What's next, an add where he has a shootout with the big bad liberal in the street at high noon? How was this person ever on the bench? How was he ever elected? Makes the fact that the California bar is supposedly harder than the Texas bar not such a big deal anymore... yeah, I know, my Gov is the terminator so I have no room to talk...

Time to rally to Rick Noriega. Help him register 200,000 supporters across Texas by the end of the month. http://acropolisreview.com/2008/06/2008-democratic-senate-candidate-races.html
