Desperate Cries for Help Your Faithful Correspondent in the News

News8Austin did a feature on newly minted Senator-elect Wendy Davis from Fort Worth. I happened to be sitting on a park bench near the South steps of the Capitol, hoping a camera crew would wander by.

KVUE-TV recently did a story about the possibility of Texans going into the Obama administration. I happened to be hanging out in a downtown park, hoping a camera crew would wander by.

And News8Austin, again, did a late night post-election wrap up piece. I happened to be hanging out on the roof of a downtown Austin building, hoping an entire election night news set would be constructed and a news crew would materialize. If you click on the link, they usually make you sit through a commercial first.

Until recently I missed a piece in the Dallas Observer from just before the election in which I was quoted indicating that Democrats will net a few seats in the Texas House, and Republican consultant Eric Bearse said Republicans would pick up a few. Nice try, bucko.

    How drunk were you on set on Election Night? :)

    Anonymous (if that is indeed your real name): I’ll have you know that I was among the few Democrats who wasn’t drunk on election night. Frankly, I consider to that to have been a short-coming.
