A Quick Guide to Texas Election Politics

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

We're knee-deep in primary season (plus a runoff election in my city) here in Texas. The fur is flying faster and thicker than a cat fight in the mink department at Neiman Marcus. Texas politics may look strange to an outsider, so I'm going to offer up a few definitions:

Conservative: Describes the population of the majority of Texas outside of Austin.

True Conservative: Someone who agrees with you.

Libaral: Someone who disagrees with you, even if they worship at the altar of Barry Goldwater. Because if they don't agree with you, there's no way they can be a real conservative.

That's all you need to know. It's pretty simple, really.
