Republicans lose supermajority in Texas House

AUSTIN, TX — Republicans have lost their 102-member supermajority in the Texas House, opening the door for Democrats to slow or block the majority’s conservative agenda.

BARACK OBAMA: “Hello, Republicans, look at your candidate, now back to me, now back at your candidate, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped listening to the Tea Party and switched to being a moderate, he could govern like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re in the Oval Office with the President your candidate could govern like. What’s in your hand? Back at me…I have it, it’s a tax plan that saves you enough money to buy two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now people marrying who they love regardless of gender. Anything is possible when your candidate governs like me and not a bigoted vulture capitalist. I’m on a unicorn.”

The Republicans love to say that the Democratic Party is ruled by ‘special interests.’ But when pressed to name these ‘special interests,’ the usual reply is women, blacks, teachers, and unions. Together they comprise the majority of Americans. What about the ‘special interests’ that dominate the Republican Party, the oil companies, the banks, the gun lobby, and the apostles of religious intolerance?
