    Periodically, the media anoints a messiah who will bring Texas into the light. Victor Morales. Wendy Davis. Julian Castro. Now "Beto". They gush about charisma, they publish glam photos, they bring in pop singers and ship in planeloads of cash. We hear way too much about pink sneakers and skateboards.

    Once again, we see the limits of hype.

    That “Beto” performed at the level he did and made Cruz uncomfortable right up through last night should be evidence enough of a changing Texas electorate. A Democrat, with a DUI on his resume, a penchant for calling out the NRA in a state where the AR-15 is the official state firearm, and where progressive thought brings labels of “communism.” “Beto” should have been lucky to win his home district let alone actually show. The relationship between Trump supporters and Cruz fanboys couldn’t be more troubled. It took Cruz way too long to support Trump in his Presidential race. When the millenials Of Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin begin to grow roots and sprout families.....the Conservative Christian Right will begin to rust.

    The blue wave was a joke.

    I agree the Christian demographic will almost certainly corrode but Conservatism typically thrives in a mature, stable environment.

    You Beto believe it! A demographic wave will sweep Texas, and people determined to make Texas a California style utopia will realize their manifest destiny. Because as we know, all young people think alike.

    Perhaps an example of the folly of believing your own propaganda. Some of the brighter lights on the left were trying to manage expectations a little toward the end.

    On the plus side for the Democrats, they’ll now be in a position to subpoena everyone who ever gave Trump a pedicure. They should put on quite a show between now and 2020.

    I am happy with the results of the election for Congress. Our
    Claire Bear was defeated, and the House and Senate are controlled by opposing parties.

    I am comfortable with gridlock. I like that Claire is gone.
