Texas seems to have more than its share of politicians who can't seem to be get  their brain in gear before they engage their mouth. E.g.,

"A Texas lawmaker on the House intelligence committee says it wasn't just the Russians who interfered in last year's election.
"Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, is comparing the use of Mexican entertainers to energize Democratic voters to the email hacking that officials say was orchestrated by Vladimir Putin's government.
Harry Reid and the Democrats brought in Mexican soap opera stars, singers and entertainers who had immense influence in those communities. into Las Vegas, to entertain, get out the vote and so forth,” Conaway told The Dallas Morning News this week. “Those are foreign actors, foreign people, influencing the vote in Nevada. You don’t hear the Democrats screaming and saying one word about that.”
Asked whether he considers that on par with Russian cyber-intrusions that aimed to damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Conaway said: “Sure it is, it’s foreign influence. If we’re worried about foreign influence, let’s have the whole story.”

Sorry, but there is at least one significant difference.  There is no evidence that the musicians or those who hired them did anything illegal.  Hacking computers and servers is a crime.  Getting out the vote is  also legal.    Further, this is like comparing a mountain and a mole hill.  Where do they find these people?

Here's more outrageous quotes by both Dems and Republicans from around the country.  Where do the find these people.


  1. Funny how it seems to be more important as to who did the hacking of the DNC than the exposure of its corruption. And, after all, the hacking merely provided the transparency that has been promised but never delivered, for the last eight years.

    It's hard to call it hacking when the password is "password".


  2. That's not the issue. The issue is the comparison.

  3. That's not the issue. The issue is the idiocy of the comparison.
