Taking a break from the evidence that for eight years we were ruled by Texas-based sociopaths, let us pay more attention to the populace of the State (nay, country) that has given us George W. Bush for eight years, only to happily take him back into the bosom of its gated suburban communities (sorry Austin, this is going to hurt).

Texas, it’s the land of science! Always has been:

Bill Nye "The Science Guy" was booed in Waco, Texas for suggesting the Moon did not generate its own light, but reflected light from the sun…

At this point, several people in the audience stormed out, including [a] woman with three small children who shouted, "We believe in God!" and left.

Always will be, like yesterday when a Texas congressperson demanded Nobel laureates in physics explain how God put oil in Texas in six seconds or less.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
