How the other half votes

I’m not exactly sure how “The Kuffner Family” got on a mailing list for the Conservative Republicans of Harris County, but we got their voting guide for the upcoming election in the mail yesterday. As a public service, here’s who they recommend. I trust you will use it as a guide of whom to avoid, something that’s not always obvious on these nonpartisan ballots. Click on the More link for the list. I’ll publish my own endorsements later this week.

    Maybe it’s Harry’s revenge for not getting to go to France with you. My mother’s dog got a credit card offer once.

    Take a look at the campaign finance reports for all the candidates endorsed by Conservative Republicans of Harris County. I think all of them gave several thousand dollars to that organization, with Michael Berry writing them a $40,000 check.

    I tactically voted for Pat Buchanan in the 2000 Republican primary – there being no significant choices in the Austin Dem primary that year – and have been receiving GOP mailers ever since. I chuckle a bit every time I toss one in the recycling bin….
