We have long suspected this

At long last, after exhaustive research across the State of Texas, Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters has located the heart of the Republican base.

Key quote: “Scientists found the vast and sticky empire stretching 40 feet across, consisting of billions of genetically identical single-celled individuals, oozing along in the muck of a cow pasture outside Houston.”

This explains a lot.

    Only one problem with the analogy, the amoebas actually cooperated with each other.

    Have you seen how Rep. Richard Raymond, District 42, is throwing his weight around now that he’s been appointed Vice-Chair of the House Appropriations Committee? When his first act in his new position is to threaten the TABC’s budget if they won’t approve a liquor license for a major campaign contributor, what do the people of Laredo have to look forward to? It’s a shame that a Hispanic representative from a Democratic stronghold plays the same money and politics game as the Republicans in the rest of the state. He has the opportunity to use his political power for the benefit of those who have traditionally had no voice in Austin, but instead he uses his political capital to line the pockets of those who line his. Shame on you, Rep. Raymond.

    There there dear, I see you’ve been on the blogs again. Your great-grandson is a fine state representative; let’s get you back in bed – you’re drunk. Nurse!

    And seriously, the comments need to stay on-topic. Either that or you need to go spam somebody else’s blog. Either that or you need to grow a pair and take it up with Mr. Raymond. His contact information is well-documented on the interwebz. Even in Laredo.

    “the colony consists of what are known as social amoebas. Only an apparent oxymoron, social amoebas are able to gather in organized groups and behave cooperatively, some even committing suicide to help fellow amoebas reproduce.”

    This is the first time I have seen the phrase “altruistic suicide.” Perhaps that’s what you call putting a positive spin on my party’s recent behavior.
