On mental illness and David Dewhurst

(Editor’s note: As I mentioned earlier, I had the privilege of speaking at the Downtown Houston Pachyderm Club today. A moving speech against the tactics of Lt. Gov.

Tea Parties Need to Take a Second Look at Lt. Gov. Dewhurst

Here we are just days away from the 2014 Republican Primary Run-off Elections. Patrick or Dewhurst…Dewhurst or Patrick, is there a clear and simple choice for the Texas Tea Party movement?
