"Therefore by their fruits you will know them."
Last week, as we're sure you're aware, Joe Straus got a strong primary challenge. We'll have plenty to say in the coming weeks. For now, however, we wanted to highlight Straus' response:
"The people of District 121 know Joe Straus and continue to re-elect him because he is an effective leader who consistently delivers conservative results," Straus spokesman Jason Embry said in a statement Friday.
Gee, where have we heard that before?!?
With the long march to November under way, Gov. George W. Bush is arguing that his record in Texas proves he is best suited to bring reform to Washington. He has even coined a campaign slogan: ''A Reformer With Results.''It isn't a secret that Straus is a raging Bush crony, but the degree to which they use identical campaign rhetoric is still revealing.
