George P. Bush, Dan Patrick, and the soft bigotry of low expectations

"The lips of the wise disperse knowledge,
But the heart of the fool does not do so."
Proverbs 15:7

Inbox yesterday:

But here's the thing: Patrick's not wrong.  And that's completely depressing.  Because that's probably good enough to get Dan Patrick through the next election cycle.

It's not a secret that George P. Bush is looking at a primary against Patrick.  It's also not a secret that Bush has been awful on the subject of the Alamo.  So all Patrick needs to do is be less terrible than Bush on that one subject and his re-election is probably pretty safe.

Soo...cheers to Patrick.  We guess.  Ugh.

Bottom Line:  In comparison to the truly awful, we suppose the merely mediocre is better.  But that's not to say it's good.  Sadly, that might be the best our political system can do.
