Texas Progressive Alliance Weekly Round Up Sept. 29, 2008

September 29, 2008

The Texas Progressive Alliance had another great week discussing the politics of Texas and the nation. Here are some of the best of those posts:

The Texas Cloverleaf has the new Palin plan for foreign experience: sitting pretty with puppets

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme says welcome to the United States of Corporate Greed.

Dembones at posts on the Texas Association of Realtors (TAR) and their status quo endorsements for the November election, TAR needs to be tarred and feathered

The past week has been one filled with brilliant people trying desperately to accomplish what is extremely difficult (namely, keeping the US out of a depression) and some exceptionally (some might say BREATHTAKINGLY) stupid people who are narrowly focused on the last shreds of a failed ideology. And their own egos. We at McBlogger have done our best to keep up with all the ups. And downs. First up are the always cretinous folks from the American Enterprise Institute who decided to blame the wrong people for the failures of their own plans. Then there was Congressman Jeb Hensarling (R -unfortunately from Texas) who decided his supercharged ego and underpowered little rat-brain had something useful to add. He found out pretty quickly that wasn’t the case.

Off the Kuff projects what the Houston Chronicle endorsements for November will look like. A majority of voters thought Obama won the first debate, but all the media pundits could talk about was what a great job McCain did.

jobsanger wonders what debate the “Talking Heads” were watching.

North Texas Liberal led an interesting discussion on John McCain’s brief campaign suspension

Vince at Capitol Annex notes that Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has refused to answer whether or not the Texas Association of Appraisal Districts should be subject to the Texas Public Information Act and discusses why that was a really stupid move.

Neil at Texas Liberal did not allow the dent in his car to be fixed by the guy who solicited him for the work in a parking lot. That’s just the type of post-hurricane scam people are being warned about.

Gary at Easter Lemming Liberal News does not like Bush and McCain’s response to the Wall Street crisis. He has some items he wants included in a bailout bill and not bags of money thrown at the problem.

BossKitty at TruthHugger notes: This is where you and I must take a crash course in the money structure of this country and how to avoid loosing everything down to our underpants, because Bush Sold US Another PONZI Scheme

nytexan at BlueBloggin worries that McCain’s Health Could Mean President Palin.
