You know CongressX Veronica Escobar is pissed she ain't the County Judge during the Chi-rona pandemic. She would be on television everyday looking like a leader. Instead, she is on the television bitching and moaning about this and that. And you know else is pissed? Vince Perez. He could have... Continue reading

200+ pounds of beautiful man there getting some vitamin D, folks. Insert your homophobic jokes now....see what I did there? But seriously, get some vitamin D. Speaking of getting some D, what is up with Dee Margo? Maybe I heard it wrong, but you guys can clarify. He is shutting... Continue reading

Now that Cesar Blanco, a man who bought his first home in San Antonio before he bought one in El Paso, will be State Senator, I got to thinking who is going to hire. When Eliot Shapleigh left the Senate, he left his trash in the office for Jose Rodriguez... Continue reading

Over the weekend, Claudia Ordaz Perez's campaign consultant and friend, Jaime Abeytia, put an El Pasoan - Ross Moore - on blast. This is after the fact she won her race handily. Instead of doing the grown-up thing and letting either Ross Moore call Claudia with his tail tucked between... Continue reading

I have been beating up on Forma a lot because of its piss poor performance lately with its client Dee Margo. But Forma did knock it out-of-the-park with Claudia Ordaz Perez. Don't kid yourself that Claudia would have won it with just only her rag-tag team of consultants, Vince Perez... Continue reading

So now that Claudia Ordaz Perez will be the next State Representative to represent District 76, what now? Does the Delegation and Claudia kiss and make-up? Yea...sorta. Say what you will about the Delegation, and there is plenty I can say about it, their uneasiness with Claudia is not exactly... Continue reading

El Paso's Biggest Loser So my girl, Tomatillo, did not win. :(........ It is okay. In the long run, Tomatillo may not see it that way now, but losing might be a blessing. If you are young, female and single, the last thing you want to do is be an... Continue reading

Besides the non-endorsement it gave for the Tomatillo-Ordaz race, the El Paso Times endorsement of Pete Buttigieg...what can I say? I'll just share the highlights: "... well-read that he is wise beyond his years." "He is a good listener." "Buttigieg has packed a lot of life into 38 years." "Buttigieg... Continue reading

How's early voting going in El Paso County? If a facebook post by your CongressX, Veronica Escobar, is any indication of how it is going, it must going "bad". She said something about more 80-years old voting than under folks under 30. I know it is not exactly unusual for... Continue reading

...and it is the same as the old one...Marisa Marquez. Lately I have been beating up on her consulting firm Forma Group because of stupid decisions made by some of her clients, but after watching the livestream of the Bernie rally, you and I may hate to admit it, but... Continue reading

Switching gears from political bullshit, let us talk about your other favorite topic...ME. "Max, you are a beautiful man. How do you do it?" "Max, are you getting younger?" It is all very confusing. Hell, it is confusing for me. But I have taken some steps to try to make... Continue reading

What is going on with Dee Margo? Dee Margo being a former legislator should know the importance of counting votes before bringing anything to a vote. But then maybe one-term was not enough to learn that. That being said, the folks consulting him, Forma Group, has a much more accomplished... Continue reading

I am dumb and do not know any better. So I am asking for your help here. That picture is of a $2.5 billion proposed project. "Uh...Max, that is Dallas." Well, no shit, Sherlock. "Why are you talking about Dallas then?" Well, the group behind this project is De La... Continue reading

So wannabe-State Representative Claudia Ordaz Perez is in the news again because new ethics complaints filed against her. Okay. But what I did not get is why is Perez having her attorney speak to the press? If these things are political in nature, why bother having an attorney address what... Continue reading

Primary Early voting is nigh upon us. So wut do? It is time to help out El Generalissmo Donald-o Trump. How you ask? Well, we gotta vote in the Democratic primary. But for who? Hmmm. We will not know until a day before election day. And the "who" would be... Continue reading

Just because I say something it does not necessarily mean I agree with it. There are a lot of bad ideas and things out there, but they exist...like margarine or women all of sudden wearing waist high jeans. But if there is going to be a Democratic US Senator from... Continue reading

Before I say anything, yes, I donated to Eliza Tomatillo. So. There. Anyways. Last night there was a so-called debate between Tomatillo and Claudia Ordaz Perez (COP). I am under no illusions about who is the master debater. The master debater would be COP. Of course, you would hope so... Continue reading

Look, I get it. If you feel like your candidate is struggling you gotta find anything and everything to throw out there. In this case, Tomatillo took a picture with "extremist Republicans" Max Grossman and some Trumper, who originally is from Mexico. It is time for Tomatillo to turn in... Continue reading

A couple of days ago, wannabe State Representative Claudia O. Perez's hired spokesperson, Jaime Abeytia, took to the internet to defend her honor. What's the best he could come up with? Claudia is Food City. And Tomatillo is H-E-B. This is how bad it has gotten for Claudia "Food City"... Continue reading

I have said it many times before on this not-so humble blog...the El Paso Times has Claudia Ordaz Perez in its crosshairs. The El Paso Times is creating a narrative with these stories, and this narrative will be used against her when the El Paso Times chooses NOT to endorse... Continue reading

I know there is a city council run-off. From what I have heard, it is a choice between two Trump supporters. So I say good! Sorta. One of them though - Claudia Rodriguez - was arrested for plying minors with alcohol. Which upsets me. Because why did no woman ply... Continue reading

If there is one thing Jaime Abeytia likes to do it is rail against Republicans. Which cool. I do not care much for them either. Just cos' I am a Trumpista it does not mean I am a Republican. I mean phuck'em. But same with the Democrats...phuck'em. But this ain't... Continue reading

I did think there for a minute maybe Mayor Dee Margo had a chance to win it this November given that 20 people are running against him. But maybe Dee himself does not think so. As someone pointed out in the comments section, Dee's facebook page was last updated back... Continue reading
