This is not your father’s Fort Bend County

Juanita notes something that bears repeating.

Here we are in what is assumed to be the conservative stronghold of America. It’s Tom DeLay’s old district, for Pete’s sake.

Yet all three of the Congressmen from Fort Bend County – Al Green, Nick Lampson, and Ron Paul – voted against the President and his war.

Take that to your Lincoln Day Dinner and chew on it, Bubba.

Yeah, I know, Lampson will have a hell of a re-election fight to contend with, and Paul is a nut who may give up his seat because he thinks he can be President. Things may look very different in Fort Bend in two years’ time. But for now, I think Juanita and her long-suffering brethren and sistren (tm, Molly Ivins) deserve the chance to revel in that. Slainte, y’all.

    As great as my admiration is for Molly Ivins, “sistren” is in fact the female analogue of “brethren,” and dates back to at least Chaucer.

  3. That’s what I get for not reading all that Chaucer back in high school. I could have sworn she made that up. Learn something new every day. Thanks!
