“Vehicular vendetta.” Those were the words from the New York Post in a piece they did about the Vendetta king, Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Abbott has reportedly begun to brag about his evil little stunts, like bussing migrants to cities like New York and DC. Our Texas psychopath seems mighty proud.

The Governor tweeted proudly that 16,300 migrants had been bussed to other cities. Abbott apparently thinks this is something to brag about. And Abbott names President Biden’s “open border” policies as the problem, saying he (Abbott) had no choice but to do this.

Right. He had to kidnap migrants in brutally cold weather and bus them illegally to other states. And brag about doing so. I do believe this man would be better served by fixing the Texas power grids. You know — actually lifting one finger and DOING something for his constituents.

But that appears to be asking too much. Abbott has made the quality of life in Texas progressively worse since he became Governor. And I’d like to address a question I see asked all the time.

Why, then, do Texans vote for him? It is simply because he has an R next to his name. Texas will still turn blue someday. I believe that. But it will take time. It is the biggest state in the country, next to Alaska. It has hundreds upon hundreds of rural towns with people living there who have been lifelong republicans.

There is old Texas money, where much of it is spent on seating — and keeping seated — Republican candidates. The gun culture is huge in Texas. Many consider the right to carry the most important issue — bar none.

To illustrate this, allow me to tell you about Uvalde county. Uvalde County is where Uvalde Texas sits. That is where the horrible school shooting happened. Uvalde county voted for Governor Greg Abbott.
