"A freaking riot.... Kudos to Harold Cook." Evan Smith Editor-In-Chief Texas Monthly Magazine "Harold Cook may be hazardous to your health…I have very real concerns that this blog is dangerous to the physical safety of Texas progressives." Mary Mapes Former Producer "60 Minutes" - CBS News "...our favorite political soothsayer and comedy stylist (well, next to Karl Rove)..." Wayne Slater Senior Political Writer Dallas Morning News "Harold Cook, who once tried to run over one of my reporters with a van full of senators, has now decided to run over everyone in sight with his new blog...." R.G. Ratcliffe Capitol Bureau Reporter Houston Chronicle "[Cook] is just twisted. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. Sort of. Laugh uproariously when it's really freakin funny .... And shake your head, eyes covered, when it's just too...too...too." Karen Brooks Capitol Bureau Reporter Dallas Morning News
