And for our next trick with the SBOE

I am of course terribly disappointed that Laura Ewing did not win her race for the State Board of Education, which sorely needs the sanity and rationality that she'd have brought to it. On the plus side, her candidacy did help to shine a little light on what a screwed-up body the SBOE is, and just how crazy some of its members are. The crazy certainly doesn't end with Ewing's opponent David Bradley. Remember the name Cynthia Dunbar, who represents SBOE District 10, which runs from Fort Bend (she lives in Richmond) up to Austin. Dunbar published an unhinged rant just before Election Day that predicted we'd be attacked by terrorists "with whom Obama truly sympathizes" and that we'd be under martial law by 2012. The good news is that Dunbar's district is actually pretty purple, and she's up for re-election in 2010. So if you find her kind of nuttiness to be disgraceful and embarrassing, you'll have another shot at removing some of the stain from the SBOE soon. Thanks to Greg for the tip.

Dunbar is the most vulnerable member on the SBOE. Democrats might have even been able to beat her in 2006 (Moody was in the high 40s ... maybe even 49?). She should be a definite target in 2010.
