    As an expat Brit currently living in Tx (albeit not Houston), I can assure you that the entire EU sucks more than any other confederation of states anywhere in the world.

    Just so you know - you're right that Arabs and Indians are different peoples. However, Sikhs (who are Indian) wear turbans and are frequently called "ragheads". Indeed, a Sikh in Arizona was murdered by idiot racists after 9/11 because they equated his Sikh attire to Arabic traditional garb.

    So, it's misplaced, yes. But it's not as if racists are known for their intelligence (or their "good jokes").

    Moving on from the raghead criteria argument what is with the two guys coming forth and revealing past sexual relationship with the candidate? Not usually seen with a female candidate.

    Maybe she did, maybe she didn't but why now do they feel the need to tell everyone? Perhaps she should come forth and tell us about their shortcomings.

    Houston's cool. I've been to Dallas. Don't want to go back. It is pure crap.

    Look at it this way. When you think of the University of Houston, the first thing that comes to mind is Dr. Paul Chu, the Nobel prize winning scientist on superconductivity. When you think of Rice University, the first things that comes to mind is Charles Smalley, the Nobel prize winning scientist on nanotechnology. On the other hand, when you think of Southern Methodist University, the first thing that comes to mind is preachers.

    Next, we take a look at professional football and baseball...... Never mind, you win.

    I know there are politicians from other states, but as a resident, it just seems as those the past year SC has done nothing right.
