The "Not Conservative Enough" tsunami against Texas House Speaker Joe Straus amounted to little more than two little boys peeing in the pool: Embarrassing to adults, but ultimately insignificant.
Congratulations to the conservatives who supported the San Antonio Republican. While they are not “Not Conservative Enough” (those who are we'll call Connies), they are good enough conservatives for Texas. On Tuesday, they re-elected one of their own Speaker.
I was excited on election night, Nov. 2. Then someone broke out the Kool-Aid and called it a tea party. Apparently, this victory is denied its many fathers. The Connies claimed this victory as parthenogenically born by the huntress goddess Mother Connie. I checked my edition of Myths of the Greeks and Romans. She may have given birth to Hubris under an alias, but not Victory.
