Had a fun time last Friday doing an interview with Tom Racine of Tall Tale Radio. I was mostly coherent and only had two beers during the whole hour. Didn’t cry once.

This is a video I did for my friend Jeff Barton who ran and lost for Hays County Judge here in Texas. It’s one of those things that seems like a great idea until you’re up at 3 in morning for days on end trying to get it done. I kid.
It’s very inside baseball. So here’s some backstory bullet points for those of you not fortunate enough to follow the internecine affairs of Hays Country politics
Jeff comes from a politically progressive family.
His dad is a former State Representative.
His mom is a Jungian psychologist.
His son just got back from a semester abroad in Argentina.
His daughter pole vaults.
During the campaign a smear was floated by the opposition that Jeff was estranged from his sister.
Jeff does not have a sister.
Jeff was fired as editor of the Baylor Lariat in 1980 when Playboy came to shoot nude photos of coeds.
Jeff isn’t a furry. But then again, how well do we really know our friends.
Jeff ran for Country Commissioner against the reincarnation of Edith Hamilton. Really.
Jeff was defeated this November along with every opposed Democrat (new or incumbent) in Hays County due to Republican straight party voting.
Jeff’s campaign slogan was: Building Bridges.
Jeff’s a great guy with a great family and I’m honored to be his friend.
And yes, I owe Jeff money.
Made this a few months ago before I lost so much weight. And before my acting improved dramatically. And I hardly curse at all now. It’s true!
Laura Wilson, 20, is the first woman ever to be banned from every pub in England and Wales after being convicted for a series of public order offenses.
After about three seconds of thought, it becomes glaringly obvious that by making her THE FIRST WOMAN EVER TO BE BANNED FROM EVERY PUB the authorities have GUARANTEED someone will ALWAYS buy her another round in Ireland or France or Spain or Italy or ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD!
If you want to stop someone from drinking you don’t make them an instant celebrity and allow them to travel freely and thereby MAKE IT EASIER FOR THEM TO DRINK!
It would have made more sense for her to be convicted of jaywalking and then become the first person ever to be banned from crossing any street in the country. At least then she couldn’t jaywalk in other countries because SHE’D HAVE TO CROSS A STREET TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY!
I have to stop. I’m getting horse from all this yelling.
