Ugh, this guy again.
Lino Graglia, a University of Texas at Austin law professor, has been called the most conservative law professor in the United States. He was once considered for a federal judgeship by Ronald Reagan but was passed over because of controversy surrounding Disaster by Decree, a book wherein he wrote against desegregation busing.
For his next trick, in 1997, he gave a speech in which he explained that black and Mexican people come from cultures where "failure is not looked upon with disgrace."
So when a recent affirmative action lawsuit threatened the University of Texas, who better to call than the guy who is basically a professional wingnut on the subject:

Few things are more painful than losing a hard-fought political campaign. Just about the only salve that can soothe the anguish — besides counting down the days to the 2016 Iowa Caucus — is the company of like-minded Americans who share your frustration at the Sharia socialist policies of the current president.
But what if you live in San Francisco or Cambridge or in some hippy-dippy Vermont township where rural white people refuse to vote the way Saint Ronnie Reagan ordained that rural white people vote? It may be time to move to friendlier environs. To help you with your real-estate decisions, here's some info about the five most Republican-leaning counties in America, as illuminated by the results of the 2012 election.

Oh, hi Texas. Did you finally decide to come back after trying to run away from your 49 brothers and sisters? Mom and Dad told you never to cross the Gulf of Mexico, so you just walked around the perimeter of the state with a hobo stick on your shoulder until you got hungry and decided to come back home, right? We all knew you wouldn't secede.
What's that? You'll stay on one condition? Alright, tell us what it is…
We, the Citizens of the Great State of Texas, and Dallas Cowboys fans worldwide, have been oppressed by an over controlling, delusional, oppressive dictator for way too long. Request the Executive Branch’s immediate assistance in removal of owner and GM, Jerry Jones. His incompetence and ego have not only been an extreme disappointment for way too long, but moreover, it has caused extreme mental and emotional duress.
Another money-hungry windbag is trying to exert control over "America's team" even though he has become highly unpopular? Move over, Grover Norquist.

Most everyone is relieved that with the campaign season over, the airwaves are no longer cluttered with political ads. But some of us aren't ready to return to an endless stream of dog food advertisements and catheter commercials.
Previously, we looked back at the funniest ads in the 2012 House and Senate races. Today, let's celebrate state and local campaigns, the kind of races that have previously given us Basil Marceaux and restored our faith in democracy…

I've seen a number of presidential elections in my lifetime. My mother, a liberal, did her fair share share of hand-wringing and yelling at the TV in the '80s. But these are different times. Times, it would seem, of epic histrionics. Karl Rove's election night conniption was just a preview of the insanity we would see after all the votes were counted.
