TX-Comp: Susan's Saucy Story Day 1

by: Karl-Thomas Musselman on Tue Sep 05, 2006 at 01:01:05 AM CDT


We told you to be prepared. Hide the children (from Susan Combs).

...as fingertips plucked at her waiting nipple bringing a reeling dizziness.

She felt his chest rising unsteadily and heard his rapid intake of breath. His lips sucked gently at the curve of her neck, his tongue brushed against the lobe of her ear then plunged inside. Her body bucked in reaction at the desire surging through her.

Ross gave a quick tug and her pajama bottoms slid away with a quiet rustle. Suddenly she was bare. He thrust his leg between hers, and a deep heaviness throbbed in her belly. He was hard, pressing against her, and she moaned.

She needed him to fill the aching void at her center.

With devastating slowness, his hand cupped her completely before he slowly slid a finger into her warmth. She was burning up.  Heat sliced through her. Emily gave herself up to the sweet torment of his hand as her hips rocked against his touch. Clutching his shoulders, her mouth blindly sought his. Desperate for release, she tightened her grip. "Ross," she managed, feeling as though she where spinning out of control.

Ross's body stilled. He made a harsh sound almost of pain then he withdrew his hand. He rolled away and lay beside her, his breathing still touch, one arm over his eyes.

"I'm sorry about that."  Ross's voice was very quiet…

by Susan Combs, A Perfect Match, 1990

I can only wonder what fine tales Combs could write now with all her experience from being Ag Commissioner... And what if she becomes Comptroller? Naughty tax assessing? Stay tuned...

Susan Combs' saucy novel (0.00 / 0)
Thanks for sharing---you do a much better job of presentation than Fred Head (who tries but fails miserably in attracting even progressive-minded voters).  This, perhaps, will help (I, personally, believe that every Republican on the ballot should be defeated this year simply because he or she is a Republican!).

There are so many reasons... (3.00 / 3)
to vote against Republicans and for Democrats.  This is not one of them.

Huh.
The topic is not as alarming as her poor writing skills. I mean, take the topic and do it justice!

She deserves all of the fun that we make of her.

YES IT IS --- based on TRUTH
She's consistently presented herself as one thing and is another. She's played to the church crowd as this pristine person while she's the author this book. She's claimed to have made her living primarly from agriculture when she was 1. a student 2. employed at the DA's office 3. State Representative 4. Attorney. When the hell did she ranch? Her performance in the office shows that if she ranched, she didn't learn much in the process. She's been a dismal failure at it.

She complained about not having enough money to run her department (Ag Commission) then decided to run for Comptroller and returned a substantial amount to the general fund. She DID NOT INSPECT THE GAS PUMPS FOR THE FIRST THREE 1/2 YEARS SHE WAS IN OFFICE. Only after Hank Gilbert started having the stickers surveyed in March and over 1/4 of them were out of date. (They only have to be inspected by law every 4 years now).

Less than 1% of the fruits and vegetables imported from Mexico through Texas are inspected for pests and deadly chemicals.  This woman lied about her qualifications, in office she failed miserably.

She's run and won catering to a FAMILY VALUES CHURCH CROWD. This shows her for exactly the person she claims NOT TO BE.

For the Love of God and Everything Holy... (5.00 / 2)
Please do NOT publish her picture next to the novel...  I mean really, it's a HUGELY alarming/disturbing mental image.  Especially with the name "Ross," which makes one (or maybe just me) picture her and Ross Perot...  Kinda funny, but hugely disturbing!!!!!

Couldn't you put up a picture of Mandy Moore?  Even better, also change the name in the story to some generic girl name (Jen, Jessica, Heather, whatever!). 

Back to the original topic, it's quite obvious her talents are NOT in writing.  Why is it so many people (think O'Rielly, but there are countless others) think they can write fiction?  Just because you're smart and successful at what you do does NOT mean you can write a novel!!!!  Our poor abused English language!!!  Oh the humanity!

I like ridiculing Republicans as much, if not more, than anybody out there. But if this continues to be the only issue that we as Democrats bring up in this race, then we're setting ourselves up to be the butt of jokes, not Susan Combs.

oh i know
Believe me, the fact that all we have in this race so far seems to be this silly book (again) and the endless jokes that I can make about a matchup between Combs and Head (a perfect match in their own sense) does depress me. It doesn't take long to look at the whole ticket and feel less than excited, but you know, sometimes you work with what you got.

I see many layers of humor in that.

Yes, but what would Treaty Oak have to say about it?

I'm very excited at this ticket
HANK GILBERT,
DAVID VAN OS
JUDGE MOODY
THE BEST QUALIFIED COMPTROLLER CANDIDATE WHO HAS DECLARED EVER...
gees... what more can you ask for than
14 years in the House
Never missed a vote
TAUGHT ACCOUNTING on the COLLEGE LEVEL (Sam Houston State)
Attorney
Served on House Appropriations Committee
Served on Legislative Budget Board
Chair of House Committee on Higher Education

NEVER MISSED A VOTE IN 14 years
Elected from numerous districts despite intense efforts to redistrict him out of the House.

Only candidate to defeat a seated Speaker of the House.

Folks from East Texas who REALLY KNOW FRED HEAD are very excited about him.

No, he's not printing push cards.
No, he's not on-line.
No, he's not campaigning like many other candidates campaign.
But he's been campaigning regularly all year long stumpin in the rural areas of the state.
He's also been to the cities a number of times. I've seen him here in the DFW area several times. He IS EXCELLENT on the stump most of the time. Everybody has great days and off days.

HE IS CONSISTENT. There is no flip flopping with Fred Head.

We have a very exciting team. The problem is that their message HAS TO BE CARRIED BY THE GRASS ROOTS.

They have more grassroots (outside of Austin) support than any ticket I've ever seen.

Another candidate who does not get seen for her strengths is VaLinda Hathcox. She has worked in the Land Office. She understands how it functions and HOW IT NEEDS TO FUNCTION.
She understands the impact the mismanagement of that office has on the citizens of this state.
She is an attorney who worked her way through college and law school.
I advise folks to go to her site and read her BIO and RESUME. You'll see things there that you can run with when you are talking to swing voters about the strengths of this ticket.

WE HAVE A STRONG TICKET. It is up to us as to how far they get. When we aren't excited about them, it's on our chin... not theirs.

We don't have to work with what we've got. We HAVE TO PRESENT THEM FOR WHAT THEY ARE AND BE PREPARED TO WIPE THE REPUBLICANS INTO THE CONCRETE WITH THEM.

IT'S NOT THE ONLY ISSUE
It is one that goes to the core of who she is and who she has professed to be.

THE REAL ISSUE IN THIS RACE IS WHO FRED HEAD IS vs ANY Republican contendor. WE HAVE THE MOST QUALIFIED SOLID CANDIDATE WHO HAS EVER DECLARED IN FOR COMPTROLLER OF PUBLIC ACCOUNTS.

Fred Head:  14 years in the Texas Legislature.
Redistricted out of his seat numerous times and still WON EVERY ELECTION.
The only Representative in the History of Texas to defeat a seated Speaker of the House!
Sat on the House Appropriations Committee and the Legislative Budget Board
Chair of the House Committee on Higher Education
IN ADDITION, HE TAUGHT ACCOUNTING ON THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL AT SAM HOUSTON STATE.

A life long champion of excellent public school education and for accessible excellent college education.

FRED HEAD IS A WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET PERSON.  He is solid, family man with NO SCANDALS, church going in reality whereas Combs professes to be...  When Fred says it, Fred does it. He doesn't waste his time pretending to be something he isn't. 

Who do we want with the check book?  Someone who has proven herself time and time again to INFLATE her resume, lie about her credentials, and present herself to the church crowd as a dainty, pristine lady while writing trashy novels. 

Without the trashy novel issue, Fred still dwarfs Combs on experiences and integrity. However, the novel does illustrate the vast difference between the image that the Republicans have crafted for her and the reality of the woman on just one area. There are many other inconsistencies in what Combs says and what she is.

a couple things
1) STOP SHOUTING!!!! If there is one thing that grates my nerves, it the the excessive uses of CAPS LOCK. Stop.

2) Please don't post/embed pictures with such huge margins. It breaks the site width for other users and is not necessary. Scale them down or don't include them please. Users have my permission to 0 out comments for the reason alone.

3) WE HAVE THE MOST QUALIFIED SOLID CANDIDATE WHO HAS EVER DECLARED IN FOR COMPTROLLER OF PUBLIC ACCOUNTS.

Two words. John Sharp.

Yes, but what would Treaty Oak have to say about it?

John Sharp had his hands in the Zachry Cookie Jar
Fred Head doesn't.

Look at Sharp's ethics report for the last race. He took more Zachry money than even Perry did during that cycle.

On integrity... Fred Head still stands as the strongest candidate we have ever had declare for Comptroller.

Fred refused CAMPAIGN Contributions for this election cycle because when he wins, he's determined not to be bought and paid for... like the current occupant of that office.

Even though Grandma is right when she says that she doesn't do what people who give her money usually expect or want her to do... I have a problem with the Comptroller accepting campaign contributions for a company who is consistently bidding for and working on large dollar public works contracts from the state. 

We must do something about the financial conflicts of interest of elected officials in this state. When you follow the money, a distinct pattern emerges. There are folks who look much better before we look at who they take their money from and how they vote than they do after we track their backers and what they do for them.

Fred Head is his own man. His loyalty is to the voters... all of them...not just those who write checks to pay for media advertising to help get him in office.

With this year's ticket the power lies in the people not in the rubber chicken fundraiser circuit.

There are a lot of frustrated folks who feel slighted. These candidates have spent 90% of their time going to the people instead of spending 90% of their time stroking egoes to get money to run media spots.

Those who are begruntled and feel neglected, if they are really the strong Democrats they claim to be, should write the checks anyway and help push these folks. Instead, there are a number who fear them because they won't owe them anything when they get in office more than they "owe" the rest of the citizens.  I think this is a good thing. Also, folks across the nation are watching it.

We haven't gotten campaign finance reform passed on the State or Federal Level. However, due to the polarity of the crooks who are incumbents and the integrity of the underfunded challengers in Texas... we are seeing Republicans desert the crooks they elected and gravitate to the challengers.  Dollars won't determine the outcome of the election this year.

What will determine it is the grassroots. But a shuffling, mealy mouthed, "they are the best we have but they aren't very exciting attitude" won't do it. 

I can't help but shout when I hear that! Doesn't integrity count for anything with you? Look at the TTC? That issue alone highlights the extent of the thievery.

For a while Bell's chances looked rather bleak to me. His race is looking more and more positive the closer we get to election day. I wouldn't even attempt to predict a winner in that race..but the closer we get to election day, the better he looks. I've moved from "not that hopeful" to "will be truly disappointed" if he doesn't win.  Which translates to my actually becoming hopeful and expectant at the prospects of winning the Governor's race.

I truly expect Hank Gilbert to tromp Todd Staples into the dirt. I hope he finishes him off for good. Staples deserves to be retired permanently. Hank Gilbert is the only man I can imagine who can effective finish Staples off. TTC and Parks alone should be nails in Staples coffin.

Head & Combs (1.50 / 4)
With Fred Head and Susan Combs running for the Comptroller position, will voters have the opportunity to include a write-in candidate? 

Fred Head's speech at the State Convention(and his wife's 30 minute introduction wherein she preceded to discuss the symboloic feature of every article of clothing she was wearing that day) made me question his candidacy.

haha
I think my next favorite thing is Head's pushcards which are actually just business card size things with a calendar on them and a picture of him and his wife that looks like they took at a prom for seniors (and I'm not talking about high school here).

To his credit, Head does have quite the record from his time in the legislature (and I'll cap this series with that). Did you know he cast over 13000 consecutive votes while he was in the Texas lege?

Yes, but what would Treaty Oak have to say about it?

YES. AND HE CONSISTENTLY SHOWED UP!
Even though the house was controlled by a thief who was under indictment for bribery /conspiracy at the time by the Security and Exchange Commission.. and all but 30 members of the House were pledged to the Speaker! Fred showed up EVERY DAY and CAST HIS VOTE and fought for what was right. Even though they did not have the NUMBERS to defeat the crooks with their votes, they let the people know by every AVAILABLE METHOD what was happening and how it aversely impacted the citizens of this state. THEY WON by showing up, being honest, telling the truth, and enabling the voters to know enough to VOTE THE CROOKS OUT OF OFFICE.

They put pressure on their the house and senate through the PEOPLE and succeeded in getting term limits passed, in getting OPEN MEETINGS REFORM LEGISLATION PASSED, and getting PUBLIC DISCLOSURE rules passed in the State of Texas.  Fred Head is EXPERIENCED at standing up for the people effectively NO MATTER WHO IS IN OFFICE OR HOW SOLIDLY THEY TRY TO CONCEAL THEIR DIRTY TRICKS!

He's exactly the person we need looking over the check book of the State of Texas. In that position, when something shady comes through, he'll be on the alert and can let the rest of us know what is going on with the Legislators and Governor and Lt Governor in regard to violations of the public trust!

FRED HEADS so called speech at State Convention
was the result of Boyd Ritchie and Rueben Hernandez & company LYING to the State Wides, Double Crossing the readers of this site who RITCHIE TOLD ON THIS BLOG and me that ALL THE STATEWIDE Candidates (except BAR and Bell who would speak earlier) would be given 10 minutes each and would speak back to back beginning at 12 noon Saturday. As they began to line up to speak at State Convention they were told that they were cutting the speeched off at 1 and those who did not speak before then would have to wait until the close of the Convention to address the delegation ... meaning after the hall was empty!  David Van Os was arguing with them. They told Fred if he ran one minute over Hank Gilbert wouldn't get to speak.

WHAT YOU SAW AT STATE was FRED HEAD so spittin mad at a pack of liars and INJUSTICE to other candidates that he LITERALLY COULDN'T GET THE WORDS OUT.  Given a very few more minutes, that would have passed.  His wife gave the first part of his speech so that Fred could recover. This was a MONUMENTAL EXAMPLE of how the Texas Democratic Party continues to try to destroy our ticket.

Fred Head is a dynamic speaker. I've heard him on bad days and on good days. State Convention is not representative of his oratory.

When Judge Moody finally got to speak (about 7 I think) they had the nerve to tell him as he walked up the stairs to cut it to 5 minutes!\

Alos Houston.... the total time Fred and Mrs. Head were on the podium was 8 MINUTES.

Thanks Faith
I appreciate the additional information regarding Fred's speech at the State Convention.  And while this has nothing to do with his candidacy, you have to admit Fred's wife's discussion of the symbolic nature of every piece of clothing she had on that day added nothing to Fred's qualifications or his prior public service.  Personally, I thought the lady had a screw loose.  I clearly didn't travel from Houston to Ft. Worth to hear some lady speak about her pantyhose and how they supported her throughout the long convention.
