I have said before that Joe Moody does not have a shot at being Speaker should the Texas House turn blue. But I might need to adjust that statement. He is still a long shot, but his odds have improved. Why? Beto O'Rourke. Look, Beto does not want to be... Continue reading

UPDATE - DAVID K SAYS CLAUDIA DID NOT CALL HIM BECAUSE PEOPLE THINK SHE RIPPED OFF FINE MEXICAN CUISINE ESTABLISHMENT LOGO. Back in late October, I joked that Claudia Ordaz Perez's campaign logo looks a lot like the Taco Bell logo. Again, late October. And the only reason I even... Continue reading

Claudia Ordaz Perez - We are seven days shy of filing deadline and it looks like Cesar Blanco is going to waltz his way to the State Senate. Which would be bad news for Claudia Ordaz Perez. Because Blanco would then be free to help his candidate, Elisa Tomatillo. Now... Continue reading

Some - offline - have been kinda surprised at my recent pictures. Like, "Max, I know you were always HAWT, but how did you get hotter?!?!" I am paraphrasing. Well, some of you all that read this blog remember me back when I weighed about 160lbs soaking wet, a few... Continue reading

I need y'alls help. I have been combing through City Representative-wannabe Will Veliz's campaign finance reports and for the life of me I cannot find expenses related to your former mayoral candidate, Emma Acosta.

Time is ticking. As of today, you’re next state senator is Cesar Blanco (D-San Antonio). Apparently though, polling was done. By who? I dunno. But per that poll Blanco is “weak on the West Side.” So what does that mean? Sweet phuck all if nobody else announces. Is West Side-weak... Continue reading

My future fiance Elisa Tomatillo is giving away pizzas and knocking on doors. Meanwhile, Claudia Ordez Perez is taking selfies with her treasurer. On paper, Claudia IS the more experienced candidate. But voters are not voting for pieces of paper. You can say all you want about Tomatillo being a... Continue reading

- - UPDATE - - EDITOR'S NOTE - (07/11/2019 16:15 EST) - FAT SHAMING IN THE COMMENTS SECTION IS A "NO, NO"!!! ----------------------------- It is interesting to see how couples are involved in this election cycle. You have Commissioner Vince Perez and his wife, Claudia Ordaz Perez, both running for... Continue reading

Now that Beto has called it quits...what's a man to do? He has expressed no interest in running for US Senate again. But I cannot imagine him wanting to be a stay-home dad making burgers with English muffins when the kids get home from school. Not that there is anything... Continue reading

Oh, man. Poor Dee Margo. El Paso Times endorsed Cassandra Hernandez-Not Brown at his expense. Per your El Paso Times: "We do like that she is willing to express views contrary to those held by Margo. That makes Hernandez a good counter to the mayor." Well. As the mayoral race... Continue reading

Folks, I have seen the future. And lucky for you I can provide you a glimpse of it. Here is a picture of yours truly preparing a Representative-elect Elisa Tomatillo-Powers a dark roast pour over, using a Chemex of course, the morning of swearing-in: And yes, you do need a... Continue reading

The race for House District 76 is on, and like David K said it will get nasty. Why? Well, in short, dos mujeres...un camino. And when it is like that, things get ugly. You have Claudia Ordaz PEREZ and her Taco Bell logo versus Elisa Tomatillo and her caca logo....although... Continue reading

Have you ever gone to a bank and either applied to open a business line-of-credit or ask for an increase? Opening a business line-of-credit is somewhat easy if it is an SBA-backed line-of-credit. The bank likes it cos' it won't lose. Now, have you asked for an increase on the... Continue reading

By next week, it will have been a month since Tomatillo announced. A month in which Ordaz has done nothing but “strategically wait”. "Claudia has time!" Yes, and no. Since Ordaz's strategic patience plan, her colleague, Sam Morgan gets arrested for slapping his wife. Now you have elected women in... Continue reading

As of today, House District 76's next representative will be Elisa Tomatillo. Now matter how many times Jaime Abeytia or David K blog how wrong that is, that is what will happen. UNLESS, City Representative Claudia Ordaz runs. You can shit on movidas all you want, but they can only... Continue reading

When the Texas House Speaker referred to some Democrats as "vile" and "pieces of shit", my immediate thought was, "Is he wrong tho?" And that is not even best, or even funniest, part. The funniest part is that nobody really likes Scott Braddock. In light of all of this, consider... Continue reading

Well, get a load of City Representatives Cassandra Hernandez-Not Brown and Alexsandra Annello. They were having none of it regarding their wife-beater colleague, City Representative Sam Morgan. Something about being treated different and what not. Never mind the fact, when it comes to everybody else, whether it be staff, lobbyists,... Continue reading

Your only major daily has not one, but TWO stories about your CongressX, Veronica Escobar. One is about the border wall. Yea, I do not care. The other is kinda interesting. The other is about El Paso's current economy. Per your Escobar: "If we don’t do something to plan for... Continue reading

2021 will be interesting for El Paso. In 2021, you will likely have a new mayor. In 2021, you will likely then have a new city manager. And in 2021, you will likely have a city council that may not be able to get anything done. The crazy part though... Continue reading

Your Democratic County Party Chair, Iliana Holguin, wants to make hay out of the fact there are no women on Commissioners Court. Could Vince Perez counter by identifying as transgendered? Sure, but it is unnecessary and would be offensive. Not that I have problem with the offensiveness of it. So... Continue reading

When Cesar Blanco announced he was running for Texas Senate the media was quick to report that the El Paso Delegation supported Blanco's candidacy. But there was - or better said IS - a problem. Only SOME of the Delegation supports Blanco's candidacy. Noticeably quiet is Lina Ortega and Jose... Continue reading

Let us face it. Cassandra Hernandez will get her seat back. Yes, there is that one douchebag that FORMA is consulting for which implies the money guys in town want that douchebag. But apparently like most young men in their early 20s, reality still has not quite yet smacked him... Continue reading

Norma Chavez should run to take her old House seat back. And if she listens to me, she will win. Hell, I'll pay the filing fee. Not too far-fetched given I donated to her during her congressional race. But first why Norma? She would be the only candidate in the... Continue reading

It appears your Mayor, Dee Margo, is in bad shape. Put aside the fact his opponent just had a Thanksgiving parade named after himself. Apparently from what some have told me, Margo was hospitalized recently. Not sure if it was in the news or not, not that I can find... Continue reading

Bob Moore might be struggling to get his not-for-profit new blog up-and-running. But in the meantime, he still find ways to write glowing pieces about your CongressX, After all he has done for Escobar, you gotta wonder what Mrs. Moore thinks about it. "Honey, not now. I am writing a... Continue reading
