You Gotta Love Texas

According to the LA Times, the Texas Legislature is debating a bill that would give the State Ethics Commission whose members were appointed by the three top elected officials in the state, all Republicans the power to quash the prosecution of a politician. The Bill is Entitled the Tom DeLay Protection Bill. (Just kidding about that last part.)

Now, I imagine that the public reaction to this will be fairly outraged, but then again I thought that the Texans would get upset about their redistricting fiasco a year ago. If this succeeds, I would suggest that the next bill simply allow for the GOP to appoint the government officials.

Is it too late to give Texas back to Mexico? Would Mexico even accept?
