Friday Cemetery Blogging

West Quote

 

“And now, will y'all stand and be recognized?”


- Gib Lewis, Texas Speaker of the House, to a group of people in wheelchairs in the gallery of the House Chamber, observing voting on disability legislation.

 

George W. Bush had nothing on Gib Lewis.  Lewis did it first.  Lewis did it best. 

Lewis may have even done it more often.

I love that by Gib Lewis. We Texans just really talk before we think don't we? Not that I would know anything about that or anything.

You Texans just have to do everything better, don't you.

So true, Shay. Even when we're trying to out do ourselves.

BOO-BOOs are bigger in Texas (but never under estimate the Hoof & Mouth disease that afflicts the rest of the country)

I heard on Bill Maher the other night about maybe GW Bush's last Bushism...
He said about the book (yes, he is writing) about his presidency that he wanted, when people were curious, there to be one "authoritarian" source that people could go to.

I am really going to miss that guy...not!
