Man, o’ man, this ticks me off!
We have some unsolicited advice for Texas state Sen. Dan Patrick: If you’re going to brag about passing a bill while trying to pander to right-wing voters, it’s probably a good idea to have, well, actually passed that bill.
This afternoon Sen. Patrick’s Twitter and Facebook accounts have touted the passage of SB 41, dubbed the “CSCOPE Termination Bill.” The posts direct readers to an online petition:
“As your Senate Chairman on the Committee on Education, we passed a bill I authored called SB41, bringing an end to the flawed and controversial CSCOPE curriculum. Now there are school officials and legislators who want to go against the will of the people, calling into question the state’s mandate to bring this curriculum to an end. Let them know you want to put and [sic] end to CSCOPE by signing the petition.”
Problem: Sen. Patrick filed SB 41 just two days ago (July 24). Not only hasn’t the Legislature passed the bill, it can’t even take it up because Gov. Perry hasn’t put this issue on the call for the special legislative session.
I can’t believe I missed it and a left wing group gets the glory. Dang-burn-it, that’ll teach me to get busy. I knew this was going to be an error-filled campaign when Dannie picked Allen Blakemore to be his general consultant. I mean, picking Blakemore to run a statewide campaign is like grabbing a kindergartner, putting him in front of a Rice University calculus class, and expecting miracles. Tain’t nothing good gonna come of it.
Hey, TFN, Dannie is MINE! I’ll pick on him and his crack consultant, you guys find someone else to pick on. I mean, I try to live by the motto of not letting anyone steal my joy but it was HARD to follow that motto when I saw your post. Heck, email me next time and let me have the fun!
Maybe I should start a contest. What is the over/under for mistakes made by that crack consultant during Dannie’s campaign?
