Have office, will run

One of the things I like about the primary season is the annual game of finding the perennial candidates. The Republicans have one who makes it more of a challenge to spot him because he runs under a different name each time. I speak of Sam Texas, also known as Sam Fayad, Texas Sam Fayad, and Sam Texas Fayad, now running for the Republican spot in State Senate District 15. He claims to have officially changed his name this time, but the Chron sees through his little ploy.

Sam, a word of advice. If you want to fool voters by presenting them with an appealing name, why not go all out? Call yourself "Sam Houston Texas" or "George Bush Texas" or "God Bless Texas". Think big, man.
