Texas Readers: Please Vote This Guy Down

Just a quick note to our many thousands of readers in the Lone Star State…

Please vote down Craig James.  The former college football star at SMU — if you’re looking for character flaws, look up his ties to the Pony Express — left his job as an ESPN analyst yesterday in order to run for a US Senate seat in Texas.

Yeah, ’cause if there’s anyone ready to “fix” Washington, it’s a guy who’s become one of the most unpopular college football analysts on television.  His take down of Texas Tech’s Mike Leach — reportedly because the coach was a meanie to his son, Adam — still might cost ESPN millions in a lawsuit brought by Leach.

James says he was protecting his son.  Most people in and around Lubbock will tell you they believe Leach, not James.

Asked about his political qualifications, here’s what James told the AP:

“Washington is busted up, and I understand how the economy works because I have been concerned about continuing to provide jobs in this economy, not 10 years ago, not 15, not 20 years ago.  I live in this economy, I get it.  We need someone from what I call Real Street, this is what separates me.”

Huh?

Good to know James doesn’t fit the ramble-at-the-mouth dumb jock stereotype.  Also, if living in the economy is a qualification for becoming a Senator, then I, too, would like to toss my hat in the ring.  Those folks get a darn fine retirement plan and great health benefits.

Forget politics, people.  I could care less about his party affiliation (he’s running as a Republican, by the way).  As a nation, we send plenty of dimwits from both parties to DC every couple of years.  It happens.  But here’s hoping Texans don’t send this one.

He will never get past the primary, several stronger candidates have already dropped out.

James is an idiot. Just watch the circus and laugh at the guy; no way he gets elected.

The idea of Craig freakin' James running for the Senate has to be one of the biggest jokes in the history of American politics. The guy's role in the Mike Leach fiasco is a complete joke, and I'm not defending Leach, who is one of the true sleazeballs in the history of college sports. The idea of EITHER of these guys getting elected to the Senate is a complete joke.

Should James win, he will replace Kay Bailey Hutchison and there will be no gender change.

One of the Sports shows showed a poll that indicated Mike Leach was supported wildly in the Souheast after the very public dispute with Craig James. In other regions of the country, the Northeast and West Coast, the majority of people supported Craig James. It appears yours truely John, is a Leach supporter.

I just don't think accepting cash to play college football and then ruining someone else's life because he won't give your son enough playing time qualifies a man to run our country.

Just my take. Thanks for reading.

@JoeEGoodart If this poor excuse for a man/father/sports commentator manages to get on the Republican ticket, as a lifelong Republican, I will (1) give money, (2) support and (3) campaign for the Democrat. That statement makes me want to vomit a little, but it is the truth. *shudder*

@JoeEGoodart I agree Today I found out my local rep a republican introduced a anti-piracy bill that gives all kinds of power to the DOJ He needs to go too.

MY daughter just graduated from TT last Saturday. Well at least she had one good football year.
