“This is pretty interesting…are you really going to take me to jail?” “Yes, ma’am.” “You really are?” “Yes, ma’am.” “Hunh.” The video posted on Drudge  of Travis County D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg’s arrest for DWI  – filming her reaction to being booked and restrained— was unsettling.  I thought her behavior was not as over the top as the headlines suggested.   If […]

Otherwise, if it were a political plus, they’d be on the first helicopter tour or boat ride down the Rio Grande, Nikons in tow. Even though the Mayor […]
