George P. Bush Weighing Run In Texas
[HOSTED.AP.ORG] George Prescott Bush is gearing up to run for a little-known but powerful office in a state where his family already is a political dynasty and where his Hispanic roots could help extend a stranglehold on power Republicans have enjoyed for two decades.

The 36-year-old Fort Worth attorney says he is close to settling on campaigning for Texas land commissioner next year. He doesn't expect to make up his mind until he knows what Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a fellow Republican, decides to do.

"We for sure are running, the question is the office," Bush told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named during the first interview about his political future since filing paperwork in November to seek elected office in Texas.

Bush's father is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, his grandfather is former President George H.W. Bush and his uncle is former President and Texas Gov. George W. Bush. Perry has been governor since George W. left for the White House.

#4  The Primitive, albeit heavily furred creature makes a good point..... The National Train Set..... would be something we can all agree on.

The Rethuglicans want an O Gauge layout, handbuilt using nickel chromium steel tracks, with serious ballast. Only qualified cranks will be allowed to make it go.... The Donks want everymans layout, based on HO scale, with a shit load of cars and stuff and all and cost way the hell more than you would have thought considering everything. Everyone gets to play with it, but it only works 3 weeks every four years before election day. Still it looks good, and it has that going for it. Unless the Chineese kitteh sits on the track and then everything goes to hell in a high speed hopper.
