The Texas political media is obsessed with Sen. Dan Patrick these days because he’s run a very good campaign and is poised to be in a runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst if Dewhurst can’t get to that magic 50% +1 number. It was interesting watching several of these esteemed media members sending out Tweets about a new PAC that has formed with the sole purpose of defeating Sen. Patrick. The PAC isn’t FOR anything, mind you, they are against Dan. Change scares some folks.
The interesting thing about the media’s response was that they didn’t bother fact checking the simplest of all facts in Dan’s bio. You know, like when he came to Houston, Texas?
Since I’m a native Houstonian, I stopped reading at the second paragraph on the website – why read further if they can’t get something this simple correct? Here, take a look:
Apparently not a single one of these awesome “journalists” that passed this website around while snickering about it has ever heard of “Luv Ya Blue“.
Because if they had, they too would have stopped and said, nope, these guys are wrong. But hey, who cares, they’re attacking Patrick and they hate that Bible totin’ son of a gun.
So just when did Dan come to Texas? October, 1979. All they had to do was ask.
Lazy ass Texas political “journalists”. And no, I’m not going to link to the site.
