You crazy Texans

I call myself a Texan, I say I am "from" College Station, because I have lived here longer than any other location, but technically I am not. I wasn't born here and I didn't get here until I was 16.

So I'm allowed to laugh at our governor, who I'm inclined to think well of despite the fact that he is a bit nutty, and assume he couldn't have really meant what he said, right? I can just smile and say I may never fully understand y'all but I love y'all, you crazy Texans.

And to the outside world. Really, we're intelligent normal people down here. We are proud to be Americans and have no desire to go anywhere. We apparently elect slightly goofy Governors, but nobody's perfect, right?

This cracked me up:

Our political Quote of the Day is by Texas state Rep. Jim Dunnam of Waco:

“We all knew he wanted to be president. I just didn’t know it was president of the Republic of Texas,” he said to chuckles from onlookers.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about or just would like to read an opinion article I really enjoyed on this topic, you can go to this one from The Eagle.

You didn't put the gov's quote on the site. That would help.
