    HBO just green-lighted a series to be called 'Gave Save Texas'. Will be a TV show dramatizing the crazy world of Texas politics, and its spill over impacts on the national stage. While the official details and breakdown of the script have not yet been released, the speculation is that the show will be based on mostly true stories.

    And if you have been paying attention to Texas politics over the last 2 decades, you will know there is plenty of material to model a show after. Especially if you live in the state, or spent most of your life there (like myself) this should interest you. And its being done by HBO, so odds are it will be both in your face and very good.

    Here are the Texas politicians that very likely will be characters in the show (in one form or another):

    Gov. Rick Perry
    U.S. Senator Ted Cruz
    Attorney General Greg Abbott
    Sate Senator Wendy Davis

    Do'nt be so negative; we still have an huge army and plenty of churches; they will save Texas for sure. At least they will not run out of steaks and bibles.

    I'm not optimistic on Texas being saved or salvaged. Since it succeeded from the US (attitude wise) about 70 years ago..... I haven't really gave a damn about the topic. States I wouldn't want to live in:

    Mississippi
    Alabama
    Texas
    Arkansas

    And if you think the ..."crazy world of Texas politics"... is nutty, and it is...just wait until the sequel:

    "God save Washington D.C." yes THAT should be the sequel, because they are just as crazy and have more power to screw up things on a national basis.

    And they are just as crazy as the Texans.

    I'm looking forward to it. Come on HBO, do it!
