What the [REDACTED] is DON Huffines thinking?!?

"Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread."
2 Thessalonians 3:12

By now, we assume you've seen this monstrosity; to say that it drips with entitlement would be the understatement of the year:

[Note: We're not going to provide a summary of highlights for this video, it's just too weird.]

Most of the commentary we've seen regarding this video surrounds the open seat race between Phillip Huffines and Angela Paxton.  Suffice to say, this only helps Angela.  That being said, we are confident that whoever represents SD-8 next session will be someone with whom this website agrees over 90% of the time.

But, let's pause, and consider SD-16.

In 2014, Don Huffines beat an incumbent psuedo-Republican in the 635 votes.  While Huffines has been a good Senator, and light years better than his predecessor, there are still lots of people gunning for him.  Good grief, Dan Branch lives in that district....

Then consider this: In 2016, HILLARY CLINTON WON SD-16; does anyone think the Democrats aren't salivating after watching this video.

SD-16 district ain't a slam dunk.  Holding it through both the primary and the general will be very challenging.  The palpable sense of entitlement this video conveys is kryptonite for that effort.

Bottom Line: However you feel about the open seat race in SD-8, DON Huffines needs to be re-elected in SD-16; this video does not help that effort.


  1. I see nothing wrong with the video. Even though I'm not in either's district, their actions in the senate affect all Texans. They would have my vote!!!

  2. Other than thinking anyone in Texas would want Two John Cornyns I don't see the video as that bad.

    I don't see it helping Phillip against Angela.

  3. Theyre a heartbeat away from holding hands and skipping down the street together. Its too long and theyre too proud of being who they are, like they should get the job because of their last name. If it takes 2 of them to get an original thought, im not interested .
