Sokolich may not be giving the best optics, but the legal obstruction is still squarely on one side of the bridge closure story.

The Texas GOP Platform calls for protection of hate crimes, the end of no fault divorce, getting rid of any campaign finance reform, and making sure the Supreme Court can't rule on anything involving abortion, religion, or the Bill of Rights. You can't make this stuff up. Pass this around to anyone who still thinks republicans may be rational. http://www.poisonyourmind.com/2012/06/shall-not-perish-from-the-earth/ #TexasGOP  #Crazy

And yet he repeats it, and no correction comes with that.Let's all be sure to continue paying attention to this person... http://www.poisonyourmind.com/2012/07/before-the-truth-has-a-chance-to-get-its-pants-on/

Bad optics for Romney at the moment...
I've been saying for a long time that Mitt Romney wouldn't get the GOP nod because of his religion, and clearly I was wrong. Luckily for the GOP, they've convinced the country that the President is a ...

Had a great experience here for a small maintenance run. The woman who helped me was nice enough to look up my car's specs for power steering fluid (turns out it uses tranny fluid instead) and grabbed me the right bottle. Prices were competitive and the staff was great. In and out in a couple minutes with no add ons or upsells.
