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."

Chet Up, Van Down!

Chet Edwards has now racked up endorsements from both the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and polling data suggests he has a commanding lead. Significantly, the usually reliably Right-Wing DMN went out of its way to not only praise Chet, but bash Vancampen as a rich, carpetbagging, arrogant, light-weight doofus willing to stoop to naked racism to get elected. I will be extremely curious to see how well Chet does in Johnson County, and whether he'll have any coattails for downballot races.
