I saw the Terrorist Babies open for Aerosmith in ’79

What isn’t a surprise: Texas is back in the national spotlight as the laughingstock again, because of people in the Republican leadership.

What is a surprise: it’s not Rick Perry or Leo Berman.

Anderson Cooper‘s got the knack for newsy stuff. Rafael Anchia is savvy enough to STFU and let the crazy ooze out of debate opponent Debbie Riddle. And a proud nation once again laughs its ass off at Texas Republicans.

It actually all started with whacked-out Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert, who has talked on the House floor about about how an unnamed retired FBI agent said that they’re looking at terrorist cells overseas who sneak preggo women into the U.S. to have their babies before returning home, thus making the children U.S. citizens. Then, after 20-30 years of indoctrination and terrorist-stuff training, these U.S. citizens return to the U.S. to kill us all deader than hell.

A horse’s ass, Debbie Riddle

Apparently Gohmert isn’t stupid, just nuts, so he declined Anderson Cooper’s invitation to appear on CNN to explain all this. Instead CNN found Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle, who would have already long been world famous for being a whackadoodle except that she has such stiff competition among others in the Texas Republican leadership. CNN rounded it out by also inviting Democratic State Representative Rafael Anchia, whose only necessary qualification for this particular TV appearance is that he not be completely insane.

Riddle, like Gohmert, also said that she’s has discussions with former FBI agents about terrorist babies, failing to mention the commonly-held view among new parents that all babies are terrorists, and already have advanced skills in the use of dirty bombs.

Under sharp questioning from Cooper, Riddle expressed surprise and dismay that a newsman would ask a lot of questions, and she declined to answer them. Meanwhile, Anchia, not being an idiot, merely smiled a lot and declined to interrupt Riddle as the crazy continued to ooze from her entire being.

Riddle never did disclose who fed her this ridiculousness, but the following night CNN had a former FBI director on the same program who said it was all nonsense.  Meanwhile, the folks over at the Texas Tribune issued an open records request requiring Riddle’s office to turn over any evidence whatsoever of this communication between Riddle and a former FBI agent. Surprise, surprise – no evidence exists.

Why do I explain this to you, the crap reading public, in such excruciating detail? Because there’s no way in hell you’re going to be able to watch the entire CNN interview without the uncontrollable desire to take an ice pick and gouge out your eyes and ears.

In the off chance I’m wrong about that, here’s the complete segment.

Update: apparently Gohmert decided to get him a piece of this afterall, he was on CNN last night, where Anderson Cooper got a big chunk of his ass too.

Great band name update

So, ok, this isn’t actually a band name yet, but it should be, and when I saw the headline not only did I at first think it was a band, but that in Australia they were a banned band, for being naughty.

Bottom line: if you’re a new band in need of a name, this would indeed be a great name, so somebody needs to fill this void. Plus, if you name your band this, your first marketing materials could say that you’re banned in Australia, so you’ve got that going for you.

Great Band Name Update

The name of “Baltimore’s premiere live 80′s music experience” is reminiscent of the primary election between Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

Interesting how the guy who ultimately won some very tough primary elections and went on to clinch the nomination for President ultimately picked the person he’d defeated in the primaries, who had been attacking him for months, to be his Vice Presidential running mate, isn’t it? Even more interesting, the team won in the Fall. Jus’ sayin’.

Great Band Name Update

Ladies and gentlemen of the crap-reading public: I have found the mother lode. I have pinpointed the Valhalla of great band names. Unfortunately, this time they’re not real bands, but instead it’s a band name generator.

Example: I entered “Rick Perry,” and among the several band names generated were “Sissy of the Slimy,” “Rick Perry of the Filth,” and “Rick Perry Circus.” Amazingly accurate I’d say.

Check it out, then come back and comment on the best band names you generated.

Yep. We’ve done it again. We’ve searched the world over, in order to bring you, the crap-reading public, the very best in band names. The lyrics to the tracks playing on their MySpace site are pretty entertaining. In a related story, the lyrics are also not safe for work. Unless you have a really cool job.

Great Band Name Update

We at Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters are always on the lookout for the best band names. And frankly, this one might have made the cut aside from their name, based on their claim that they specialize in a combination of “experimental, ghettotech, and showtunes.” Given that, if their name had been anything other than “Trainwreck in Motion,” they would have made the cut.
