In a week of horrific news, here is something to soothe the soul. Big time RINO Kay Bailey Hutchison, of Texas, has announced she will not seek re-election to the United States Senate in 2012. Of course, she also promised to resign from the Senate to run for Texas Governor, and didn't. Once she was soundly defeated in the primary, she went right back to D.C. So this is long overdue.
From the Dallas Morning News:
"I am announcing today that I will not be a candidate for re-election in 2012," she wrote to supporters. "That should give the people of Texas ample time to consider who my successor will be."

Might I be so bold as to suggest our readers take a look at the best man to replace this her?
Michael Williams is the Chairman of the powerful Railroad Commission of Texas. The Railroad Commission has primary regulatory jurisdiction over oil and natural gas industry, pipeline transporters, natural gas & hazardous liquid pipeline industry, natural gas utilities, the LP-gas industry, and coal & uranium surface mining operations. The Commission is responsible for research and education to promote the use of LP-gas as an alternative fuel.
This is quite similar to the position Sarah Palin held as the Chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, though she was appointed and Texas elects the Chairman.
Williams is a Tea Party favorite and a dynamic speaker. He's a solid Conservative. I know it's just barely 2011, but it's not too early to get behind this fine man, and support the next Senator from The Great State of Texas!
