Gotta love those Texans

Might be fact, but just in case, will file it under humor:

Gotta love those Texans

City Councilman ejected from studio

T. Bubba Bechtol, part time City Councilman from Midland, TX,
was asked on a local live radio talk show just what he thought
of the allegations of torture of the Iraqi prisoners.

His reply prompted his ejection from the studio, but to thunderous
applause from the audience.

"If hooking up an Iraqi prisoner to a car's battery cables will save
just one American GI's life, then I have just two things to say":

"Red is positive"

"Black is negative"

Just a funny line or two, retold

And like so many stories that circulate year after year,
they getr 'revised' to fit the times. I've seen variants
of this that were not composed for mixed company, so
therein probably contains the reason he was 'ejected'.

Reminded me of Will Ferrel....

and his dead-on impression of Bush
"Don't mess with Texas"
True or not ol' Bubba seemed to SAY what most people THINK
