Demographics are destiny. As I have recently written, Texas is headed
blue; the only question is when. I have also correctly asserted that
Karl Rove shares a good bit of my thinking about this. Texas Democrats
are increasingly excited and Texas Republicans increasingly worried.
Have you noticed how Texas Republicans have been traveling the nation
suggesting “Come to Texas if you don’t like Rahm Emanuel harassing
banks, come to Texas if you don’t like women being helped and respected
by Planned Parenthood, and come to Texas if you are a polluter”? This
attempt to import reactionary voters to Texas won’t work. Perhaps next
they will suggest Texas Republicans have a lot of (white male) babies
and indoctrinate them young!
