Good thing we've still got politics in Texas - finest form of free entertainment ever invented.
So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce.
Satire is traditionally the weapon of the powerless against the powerful.
Next time I tell you someone from Texas should not be president of the United States, please pay attention.
Havin' fun while freedom fightin' must be one of those lunatic Texas traits we get from the water - which is known to have lithium in it - because it goes all the way back to Sam Houston, surely the most lovable, the most human, and the funniest of all the great men this country has ever produced.
I dearly love the state of Texas, but I consider that a harmless perversion on my part, and discuss it only with consenting adults.
I think provincialism is an endemic characteristic with mankind, I think everybody everywhere is provincial, but it is particularly striking with Texans, and we tend to be very Texcentric.
Many a time freedom has been rolled back - and always for the same sorry reason: fear.
As they say around the Texas Legislature, if you can't drink their whiskey, screw their women, take their money, and vote against 'em anyway, you don't belong in office.
It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America.
Being slightly paranoid is like being slightly pregnant - it tends to get worse.
The thing about democracy, beloveds, is that it is not neat, orderly, or quiet. It requires a certain relish for confusion.
I believe that ignorance is the root of all evil. And that no one knows the truth.
You can't ignore politics, no matter how much you'd like to.
You look at the large problems that we face - that would be overpopulation, water shortages, global warming and AIDS, I suppose - all of that needs international cooperation to be solved.
