Hey, at least it's not an L

The best bit in this story about Gene Locke's campaign kickoff rally at Minute Maid Park yesterday is at the end, and doesn't really have anything to do with Locke's party.

Locke's multi-ethnic audience and endorsers were a refutation of an ethnic appeal made this week by campaign opponent Roy Morales, the county education board trustee who has lost two council races.

Pointing out that the Houston mayor's race is non-partisan, Morales, a Hispanic Republican, said on Apostle Claver T. Kamau-Imani's radio show,

I don't have an R next to my name, I don't have a D next to name. I have an H next to my name.

To which [Gracie] Saenz, [Victor] Trevino and others might say, "So what?"

Actually, I think the best response comes from Festus in the comments:

I assume the 'H' next to Roy Morales' name stands for "Hopeless."

I don't think I can add anything to that. But Greg did, so go check his post out.

I'm not sure those are the words of a credible candidate. Has Outlaw Josey Wales ever made such dumb statements?
