cornyn or cornball, you decide

I suppose everyone lives in a state with a certain nauseating schtick associated with it. California has the gold rush and Hollywood. Florida has sunshine and oranges. Maryland has crabs.

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and that goes double for the schtick. Cowboy schtick. Now, I like cowboys. Maybe not as much as Jennifer at Thursday Drive, but I do find the whole image appealing. I like the idea of them and the look of them. Definately the look. But when political ads and cowboy schtick get plastered together, look away.

Just a for instance. This is the junior U.S. Senator from Texas, John Cornyn. He is up for re-election this fall after his first term. And this is how he has chosen (paid big bucks) to promote himself. Cowboy schtick at its finest (most revolting).





And I do believe Johnny Cash would roll in his grave if he knew his singing schtick was being used to sell this brand of politics.
