Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the state Capitol……here comes more wing-nuttery.
This from the Austin American-Statesman newspaper:

Holding signs that said “Less government = more freedom,” “No Public Option” and “You Lie, You Lie, You Lie,” hundreds of conservatives braved the pouring rain Saturday at a rally on the south steps of the Texas Capitol.
The purpose of the rally was to tell those in town for a meeting of the Democratic National Committee to, as Texas Republican Party Chairwoman Tina Benkiser put it, “crawl back to the left-wing socialist pit they came from and keep their hands off Texas.”
The rally was organized by the Texas Republican House Committee in response to reports that Democrats were in town plotting ways to try to take control of the Texas House of Representatives in 2010 and to turn Texas in favor of Democrats in 2012.
Oh, those evil Demmycrats! Always with the plotting…..
