About 20 minutes ago, Rep. John Culberson (D-Tex.) voiced opposition to the anti-surge resolution, delivering remarks that would have made Archie Bunker sound like a Brookings scholar.
What's at stake if we don't support a "surge" in Iraq? To hear Culberson tell it, "American civilization" and whether we are "proud" of our troops. About the only good thing I can say about Culberson's remarks is that he spoke for less than one minute.
Culberson's website has this strange headline on it — strange because he serves in a national, not state, office: "Texans Should Always Run Texas."
Sounds good to me. Let them run Texas, and not set policy for the other 49 states.
