Not Messing With Texas - I promise

My friend Mark Mullen sent over this invite to an outrageously fun-sounding fundraiser for Rick Noriega. Noriega is hoping to knock off the incumbent Republican Senator John Cornyn - wouldn't it be great to prove the real value of Barack Obama's 50 state campaign by picking off a Senate seat in deep red Texas?

See below:

So you may be asking, just how big of a doofus is Noriega's opponent, John Cornyn? Well, check out Noriega's strong response to Cornyn's recent ad (in which he dresses up in a cowboy costume - as if her were advertising a used car dealership local access cable..):

This will be a really fun event. The invitation says 6-8 since there may be a teensy weensy bit of candidate talk around seven but actually we have the room until midnight.

As you may have noted, the US Senate has power beyond just Texas and the US. Although only US citizens can buy tickets, plenty of Brits and others would really enjoy coming, so please consider ponying up for this fantastic candidate and come party with us. And besides...a hundred bucks is basically like three cups of coffee around these parts.

Hope to see you there,
