Mike Conaway (TX-11) Attracts Two Teabaggers in Primary

Jumping Jehosaphat. Congressman Mike Conaway of Texas CD – 11, a district entailing a newly drawn sprawl of 35 counties lying west of Austin (The Free Republic of Austin, to some) has attracted not one but two opponents for the March 2010 primary. I saw it here at the Austin American-Statesman.

Two primary challengers.

Both of them died in the wool Teabaggers.

I had to ask myself today what in Jesus’ name could Mike Conaway have done to outrage the far right of his party? Conaway is a mortal enemy of the left. We dislike his politics immensely. His campaign war chest is a joke because no one west of Austin has any money anymore. He is, by definition then, “the salt of the Earth.” So I had to ask myself what did Conaway do to Jesus to get Him to turn His back on the congressman like that?

So I googled it. And lo and behold, I stumbled on the answer.

And Jesus said:

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”

-Matthew 5:13

Answer: Conaway (aka “the salt”) has lost his savor.

Conaway must be cast out.

Conaway must be trodden under foot.

Then I had to ask myself what has Mike Conaway, a conservative’s conservative, done to cause him to lose his “savor?” For instance, what separates Conaway from say a complete soldier ant Republican like my congressman, Rep. Pete Olson of Texas CD-22?

So I consulted, and compared their records.

Take a look for yourself. Here is Conaway’s OpenCongress profile.

And here is Olson’s OpenCongress Profile.

Do you see it? While both Conaway and Olson both vote least like their Republican colleague, Anh “Joseph the Jackal” Cao, and both vote least like Democrat Donna Edwards, and both vote most like Blue Dog Democrat Walter Minnick, Olson votes with Republican Congressman William Thornberry, and Conaway votes with Republican Congressman Jeff Miller.

In fact, Olson’s Rep:Abstain: Dem record is 95:5:0 while Conaway’s is 90:1:9

Conaway’s 90:1:9 record proves that he is grist for the far right’s mill. He is obviously a RINO on the order of Dede Scozzafava.

These Teabaggers, one by the so-so name of Chris Younts, and the other by the killer name of Canyon Clowdus, are inspired to run against this commie-loving congressman from the hill country by their attendance of Texas Tea Parties.

I kid you not.

You could have seen Canyon Clowdus’ Tea Party speech here at his blog but apparently the You Tube video has been removed by Canyon.

Or you can see Chris Younts’ address at the San Angelo Tea Party rally on July 4th, here on his campaign website – or maybe not, it seems to have been taken down as well.

Let us all pray at the feet of Sweet Jesus that He sees fit to cast His Great Blessing on one of these two forthright individuals and run that RINO Mike Conaway, who has overstayed his welcome in DC, right off the ballot.

Because wouldn’t we like to see another New York CD-23 race right here in the Lone Star State?

Is the Pope German?
