Tell it like it is...

An on-line poll, at a local Austin, Texas news website:

Quite often, these polls are an opportunity to watch an exchange of comments from those on the right and the left in the blue spot on the map in Texas.

Today's poll
What will you do if gas prices top $3?
A. Take the bus/ride my bike.
B. Organize a carpool
C. Nothing.

A particulary colorful response was:

"Something rational like: (a) blaming Clinton, (b) talking about the threat of unprotected borders, (c) imposing more standardized testing upon school children, (d) recalling 9/11, or (e) campaigning for a Constitutional amendment prohibiting marriage betweens gays. In other words, doing something that fails to hold any member of the current Administration accountable for anything. That is our SOP now."

That rather says a lot, doesn't it?

Yeah, it's a little more "red" out here in Williamson county, isn't it? Funny, remember years ago when "red" had a different meaning. Funny how that works out, isn't it?
