Molly Ivins is always on the lookout for brave Republicans willing to tackle the issues that matter to all Americans. Here's what she found in her home state of Texas:

At first sight, this seems plainly ludicrous.
But then again, I always said that a large minority of Americans votes for Republican governance in order to prove a very patriotic point to the rest of the world: America is such a great country not even the worst politicians can destroy it.
Let's just hope they are right.

This politician has too much time on his hands and very little imagination. His constituents are are completely oblivious that he is wasting their tax dollars on his prurient interests. Texans, are getting what they deserve.
