In other Texas-related news (because you know the monkey in charge likes to claim he's actually from Crawford): The ball is rolling on impeachment. Actually, it's been rolling for a while now, but more people are talking about it. And once Dan Savage gets involved, anything can happen -- remember, folks, santorum.
So, without further ado:
