Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Tom Craddick's Gold-Plated Crapper

From the Capitol Annex. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Tom Craddick (so far the highest-ranking government official I know I have cheesed off) is a venal, mendacious little creep; a petty, petulant, legislative bully who kowtows to bigger thugs (such as Tom DeLay) with the kind of obsequiousness usually reserved for Byzantine Emperors. If there was ever a perfect symbol for Craddick's hopefully soon-to-be-ended tenure as Speaker, surely it's a $1,000 toilet.
