According to the Houston Chronicle's “Texas Politics” blog, a majority of the State Board of Education, including two of its Democratic members, gathered in Spicewood two weeks ago to honor rejected SBOE Chair Don McLeroy.
Among the highlights:
Cynthia Dunbar, R-Richmond, asked Rene Nunez, D-El Paso, to take a photograph of McLeroy and “Don's Darlings,” which included herself, [Terri] Leo [R-Spring] and Barbara Cargill, R-The Woodlands.
What I wouldn't give for a copy of that picture! Oh wait … here it is …
His women colleagues also brought gifts – many with a “roach” theme. It's sort of an inside joke that takes one of them to explain in some detail.
Zzzzz … Uh? … Hmm … Maybe they need a good exterminator. Paging Tom DeLay! (Assuming it's that kind of roach.)
Can't you just feel the love? And no wonder!
Terri Leo, R-Spring, noted that “he doesn't shush me any more!”
What a night, perhaps summed up best by the other Democrat present, Rick Agosto of San Antonio.
“I feel like we are at the Alamo,” Agosto said.
