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."

Goodbye, Miss Ann...

Once upon a time in Texas, we had politicians with personality, dammit; not the poll-tested, blow-dried, pre-fabricated pretty-boys you see today. Once upon a time, the Governor of Texas was someone who stood out in a room, who symbolized the state all over the world. Goodbye, Miss Ann; we will not see your like again soon, if ever. Heaven's gain is our profound loss.

UPDATE: Listen to her keynote address at the 1988 Democratic National Convention and remember.

I had always hoped that the first time I used the term "Madam President," it would have been in reference to Ann Richards. [sigh]

Yeah, alot of us thought that during the campaign. We firmly believed she could do no wrong. But ultimately, I don't think she was that interested in Washington, otherwise she would've appointed herself to Lloyd Bentsen's senate seat.
