Re: Texas AG retiring
Save your breath, John.
Last week Gen. MORALES did his "here is my poll, so how much
will you ante up" bit. Being an old Democratic wheel-horse,
I got his pathetic letter. He came up dry. My low opinion of
him is pretty widespread in Texas..
The pitiful Microsoft gesture was no more than one Assistant
AG's lateral pass, not a Hail Mary forward pass. A serious
Texas AG could single-handedly break Microsoft using fine,
old Texas laws. The silly nuisance suit is just John
GOODHOPE's bid at getting some out-of-state travel funded in
order to look for another job. My guess is that he will end
up working for the Telephone Monopoly.
For anti-trust laws to work there has to be political
strategy, discipline, and action behind them. Do not look to
Vichy Democrats like MORALES for that. They are leaving
Austin and surrendering even before the Republicans have
