Texas, educated

Texas education board dreads possible return of culture war with anti-gay candidate

AUSTIN – Mary Lou Bruner has at least twice said President Barack Obama was a gay prostitute in his youth. She believes that there is scientific proof the Grand Canyon could not have been created by anything other than the biblical Great Flood and that sex education is a method to indoctrinate kids to be gay.

And Tuesday night, she nearly won a seat on the state panel that oversees education standards for Texas’ 5.2 million schoolchildren, representing a district that includes Rockwall and Kaufman counties and much of East Texas.

Now, as the frontrunner heading into the May 24 Republican runoff, Bruner could be the spark that rekindles the fiery political rhetoric the board has been attempting to smother for more than a decade.

Why "educated" and "Texas" do not belong in the same sentence without a negative modifier.

She don't look like a steer to me.

And you know what that means.

Not that there is anything . . .
