If all you care about is...

By Byron LaMasters

Radical right-wing Republican values, then vote for Pete Sessions. Not sure if it's the Park Cities People or D Magazine, but they endorse Sessions even after admitting that Frost has "done more for Dallas":

We Endorse Sessions. Both men are solid on national security, the war on terror, and the war in Iraq. Mr. Sessions is better on taxes and job growth. Mr. Frost has done more for Dallas, especially in pushing the Trinity River project that is so essential to the city’s future. But for us, the decisive point comes down to conservative values, not to pragmatic pluses and minuses. In that regard, Mr. Sessions is the better choice.

We urge our readers to vote for him. If he wins, we expect him to get the message that a Congressman from Dallas should be a fighter for its future — and rise to the stature of his position.

D Magazine has a good review of the most recent Frost / Sessions debate as well. A few of their observations:

I think Sessions has a hard time getting comfortable at these events. [...]

Frost, on the other hand, never seems more comfortable than when he's either responding to an attack or ramping up his own. [...]

I counted that Frost took one drink of water from a cup hidden behind his podium. I lost track of how many drinks Sessions took, but I know that he dropped his cup on the floor once, and twice he kneeled down behind his podium for an extended period of time. [...]

Sessions repeated the point that Frost had invited Peter Yarrow to sing at an October fundraiser. [...] Though Frost immediately withdrew the invitation, Sessions suggested that this meant Frost didn't care about the safety of children, a line of attack that seems overheated at best. Frost responded with a new bit of information: Yarrow had sung at the Republican Conference two years ago, and Sessions had not objected to that. The word "hypocrite" hung lightly in the air.

Haha. Pete Sessions is an idiot. According to a reader that attended the debate, Sessions also directed people to an anti-Frost website on several occasions, however he must have taken directions from Dick Cheney. Sessions meant to direct debate watchers to CostOfFrost.com, but apparently said at least once CostOfMartinFrost.com, a website which the Frost campaign bought immediately following the debate.

Since my own district (TX-26) is a non-starter in this election (I don't think the guy running on the Democratic ticket is even endorsed by either the county or state parties), I've been paying particular attention to TX-32 since it's geographically close at hand.

I want to see Martin Frost win, not because Pete Sessions is a blow-dried idiot, but to spite Tom DeLay. I want to hear DeLay's bashee screech on Election Night when Frost, Edwards, Doggett, and Sandlin are all re-elected.
