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."

Craddick Agonistes

Tom Craddick's desperate fight to hang on to his gold-plated crapper is lovingly detailed by Kuff. This is a tough choice, from a purely partisan political viewpoint: on the one hand, I don't care much for Jim Pitts, but with him as Speaker, Democrats can at least expect their floggings to be limited to once per week. They may even be allowed to introduce and vote on legislation. On the other hand, nothing would help Democrats more than that venal blood-thirsty autocrat Craddick as the public face of the party in the Legislature for another two years.
