Chupacabra Report

An electoral sea change is at hand for our nation, with Republican officeholders running for cover, but here in Texas, our elected officials are still in the sway of the local ayatollahs.

The right wing Bible-beaters appointed to the State Board of Education by Governor Perry recently re-wrote the language curriculum in such a way as to give the state’s English teachers fits, and now they are doing the same with the science curriculum, inserting non-existent controversy into biology and earth science to lend credence to the creationists.

Down the road from me a high school principal responded to anti-Muslim hate crimes by having representatives of the Council on American Islamic Relations address the student body at an assembly.

The conservative Houston Area Pastors Council responded to this by pressuring the Friendswood School District until the principal was re-assigned.

It seems that if it’s not their church, these folks are suddenly in favor of separation of church and state.

The Pastors Council is all for bible classes in the public schools. They also favor public prayer, except, as last year when they shared the outrage of blowhard Senator Dan Patrick, who marched out of the senate chamber in a huff when the invocation was given by a Muslim Imam.

This leads me to have no patience for Democrats threatening to sit out the election or cross over because their favorite candidate came up short for the nomination. This election is about a lot more than the top of the ticket. If we want to set things right in this country, we gotta “get thar fustest with the mostest.”
