MSNBC analysis: Perry versus Romney cage match

Ed Schultz was kind enough to let me get a chunk of analysis on last night’s debate of 12 year old Republicans. Here’s the segment.

Honestly…the real winner of that exchange? President Obama, hands down.

What did you think of the shameful display by the Republicans last night on the issue of immigration?  Let’s talk in the comments section!

We’re takin’ this show on the road: D/FW

North Texas/Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex folks -

Mark your calendars for November 5.

Actually, first mark your calendar for October 21, because remember that nut who predicted the rapture earlier this year, only it turns out he was full of it? Yeah, well, he’s rescheduled his little rapture for October 21. So yeah, that’s the date we can all join hands in bipartisan unity and ridicule people who pretend to know about such things.

But after that: mark your calendar for Saturday, November 5, because that’s when Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters will be taking this little clown car act on the road, where we’ll be featured at an event benefitting the Texas Democratic Party, and honoring the lovely and talented Wendy Davis, State Senator from Fort Worth.

That the event will be held at the amazing Dallas World Aquarium, along with all the endless associated fish puns, would be enough. That the event honors Wendy Davis would be enough. That the event benefits your Texas Democratic Party would be enough. That the event features me would be…well, probably not enough.

But get this: the event also features Dallas Senator Royce West, who is not only smart and entertaining, but whose voice always leads all blind people everywhere to fully believe that Barry White is in the house.

So don’t be a cheap-ass – order your tickets to this dinner event online now. Then get your friends to do the same, because you know how much you hate walking into a room and realizing you don’t know anybody.

I’ll see you in Dallas! (assuming that rapture guy is full of it, again)

FUBAR in the news: MSNBC’s Ed Show

Ed Schultz of MSNBC’s The Ed Show was kind enough to have me back last night, this time to discuss Rick Perry’s family hunting camp, which of course as we know is now named RepublicanDooDooHead.

You can see the entire segment here.

Buzz from the TV show

On this week’s Capital Tonight, I was asked about Rick Perry’s current status in the Presidential race, following a terrible week for him in the news, but a pretty good week for him in the money race.

And featured on Capital Tonight this week is Laura Huffman, Texas State Director of the Nature Conservancy, who explained why Proposition 8, which is on this November’s ballot, is a cool deal.

Why do I care what Prop 8 does? Glad you asked. Because we don’t need any more of this, because we haven’t noticed a whole bunch of extra water just sitting around lately, and because it doesn’t cost taxpayers a dime.

You can watch this week’s Capital Tonight in its entirety this Sunday morning at 11 am on YNN Austin, in San Antonio on Time-Warner Cable channel 90, or in other Texas markets on Time-Warner channel 888. Or watch it online any time.

CNN’s Ed Lavandera was kind enough to include me in a piece on – what else – Rick Perry, airing today on CNN.

Buzz from the TV show

Since we’re already sick and tired of the Presidential race, on last Thursday’s Capital Tonight on YNN-TV in Austin, the subject turned to the U.S. Senate race to replace the retiring Kay Bailey Hutchison. My comments will probably not please either Democrats or whoever is running David Dewhurst’s campaign.

You can see the entirety of last week’s show here, an episode which also features Mean Rachel.

And on the subject of Lt. Governor Dewhurst’s campaign, why take my word for it? He’ll be our guest on this Thursday’s Capital Tonight, when you can see for yourself what he has to say. Tune in live on YNN Austin this Thursday at 6 pm, or watch it Thursday night at 10, Sunday morning at 11, or at any time on the web.

Buzz from the TV show, plus bonus Perry late-night TV punchlines

On Thursday’s Capital Tonight on Austin’s YNN-TV, I was asked to follow up on what I’ve previously discussed in another post (which, incidentally, got play in the U.K as well), and I repeated how I think everybody is handling Rick Perry exactly wrong.

As a bonus to you, the crap-reading public, here’s another example of how much fun you’re missing when you don’t watch Capital Tonight: another segment from Thursday’s show – the late night TV shows’ Perry punchlines.

You can watch this episode of Capital Tonight in its entirety this Sunday morning at 11 on YNN in Austin, or streamed any time on the interwebz. Meanwhile, catch us Thursday evenings live at 6  and rebroadcast at 10. If you don’t, the terrorists win.

Buzz from the TV show

On this week’s Capital Tonight on YNN-TV in Austin, I was asked about Governor Perry’s positioning in the Republican Presidential nomination process, which, in my view, has everything to do with why tomorrow’s prayer event in Houston will be a complete flop.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments section. Meanwhile, you can watch the show in its entirety this Sunday morning at 11 in Austin on YNN, or at any time on the web.

Radio Sessions

A couple of days ago, I poked fun at Congressman Pete Sessions over his separation from his wife, which prompted an off-line debate between me and Scott Braddock of CBS radio in Dallas-Fort Worth, over the relative propriety of having done so.

Scott and I were having so much fun bickering about it off-line that he decided to bring it online on the radio show today. Here’s how it went.

Buzz from the TV show – Perry’s day of prayer

Last night on YNN’s Capital Tonight show, I was asked about Governor Rick Perry’s “Day of Prayer” event next month in Houston.

What do you think about it? Let me know in the comments section. Or perhaps you’d like to attend the competing “Day of Debauchery and Gluttony.”

Mostly what you should do is watch Capital Tonight in its entirety this Sunday morning at 11 on Austin’s YNN, or watch it any time on the web.

Buzz from the TV show: Airport groping

Who says TV shows on political analysis are boring and not fun? I mean, besides everybody?

Here’s what happened during yesterday’s “Capital Tonight” show, when YNN-Austin anchor Paul Brown asked me about the TSA groping bill Governor Perry added to the legislative agenda:

Buzz from the TV show: Wendy Davis’ war

On YNN’s “Capital Tonight” last Thursday, I was asked about the effects in this special legislative session of Wendy Davis’ filibuster. Her effort killed one of the “must pass” bills that died in the final hours of the regular legislative session. Incidentally, two other “must pass” bills died in the House the same night of the regular session, a fact that the Republican Partys seems to have left out of their talking points. Aside from their selective amnesia, here’s my view on Senator Davis’ filibuster:

What do you think? Let me know in the comments section. Meanwhile, you can watch the entire show online here, and you can catch “Capital Tonight” on Austin TV on Thursday nights at 6 or 10, and Sunday mornings at 11.
