Subject: Heap Big Stooopid in
OK, Bart....I and another science teacher I know
saw that 23% study and groaned!!
Note: 23% of Texans think Obama is a Muslim
Yes, I live in Lubuttocks, Texas...the buckle
on the Bible Belt where Texas Tech is more
conservative than Baylor. I went to Baylor....you
can buy alcohol at the grocery store in Waco.
But...I'm doing my best to wipe out ignorance
by teaching my students that humans and dinosaurs did not
exist at the same time among other things. Can't
teach comprehensive sex ed because they might then go
and actually have sex, which they are already
doing because we're number one in chlamydia! (We're # 1!)
The religious right has a strangle hold on the
lege in Austin and they are trying to put a stop to real science,
so I don't know how long I'll be teaching.
Any public school teacher who votes Republican
is an idiot....that group alone probably explains a large
portion of that 23% who believe Obama is Muslim.
You oughta hear the redneck talk in the teacher's lounge!
Some folks say it's a cultural religious thing.
It used to not be that way back shortly after the Dust Bowl days.
Nevertheless, I am happy to report that I am
seeing more Obama bumper stickers than McCain stickers.
This place was wallpapered in W's five years
ago. It was dangerous to say anything critical about Bush.
I wouldn't say the tide is turning in West Texas,
but one senses a change. We still have crazy ass Repubs
out here, but I have it on good authority (some
who are really close to Pickles) that quite a few reasonable
Republicans out here are voting Obama....even
those with strong ties to the Bush family.
I believe in the Bradley Effect, but I also believe
in the Reverse Bradley Effect. How many
husband-dominated Texas women are claiming
they'll vote for McCain, like they've been
ordered to, but when that curtain closes on the
voting booth - will secretly vote for Obama?.
We're working hard to improve Texas. It's a big
state. You know GW wasn't really a Texan no matter how
he tried to claim it. Good to have a new village
idiot claim the other biggest state in the union. Is she a true native
I love your site Bart, but be careful...my roots
run deep in Okie territory.
I know what kind of "brilliance" comes out of
Lawton. I'll tell ya about it someday.
