#TXLEGE: If the current #SpecialSesion were a Football game

Note to self: Get picture from DKR with Capitol in background this season.
"I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:14

Long story short: We're at about the five minute mark of the second quarter; we have a lead, but we just gave up a touchdown and, furthermore, we got smoked pretty badly in the process.

First Quarter:

Second Quarter:

  • Early: Punts back and forth during early House committee hearings.

    Middle: House leadership takes over ball deep in their own territory.  Attempts trick play with that tree bill stunt on Thursday.  Unfortunately, the defense (ie. the Freedom caucus) was caught badly out of position and House leadership scored a touchdown.

    This isn't the end of the world, but it's a potential momentum shift if left unaddressed.

    The way to address it is for the Freedom caucus to not rely on other members and to have undeniably germane amendments ready to go on every bill that comes to the floor.

    [Note: The fact that the bill in question was HB 7 was how we came up with this metaphor in the first place.]
Halftime: This Tuesday's edition of the Jim and Michael show.

Random Thought: That being said, it'd sure be nice if this guy got onto the field....

  1. I wonder which term is more appropriate - House Leadership -or- House Leachership.
