This tells us a whole lot more about Texas Democrats than anyone should want to know.
“If you are going to be out more than two weeks call your spouse for conjugal visits,” explained Texas Democrat Leticia Van de Putte, who, back in 2003, was one of 11 state senators who fled to New Mexico in order to stall Republican redistricting plans. “After two weeks — and most of my colleagues are men — I said get their wives here and quick because you are under intense stress.”
Based on Charlie’s post last night, it looks like the Chicken Dems were way ahead of you.
Van de Putte is a piece of work, btw. A long time before the 2010 governor’s race got serious in Texas, she went out and announced that she had decided not to run for governor, citing her fear the the Republicans would be too mean to her because she’s Hispanic. Seriously.
My response as GOP comms director was basically: Who?
