Having seen her party crushed by the Republicans in Harris County and the state of Texas (not to mention nationwide), Democrat State Representative Senfronia Thompson had this to say about the results.
"Ignorance will not prevail," Thompson said while watching returns from the party's Harris County headquarters. "I am hoping the public will wake up and see that stupid does not work."
What Thompson does not realize is that the public did wake up and did see that stupid doesnít work. Thatís why we had a wave election that rejected the failed policies of Barack Obama and his Democrat acolytes.
As for Thompson, she ought to count herself lucky that voters in her district didnít wake up and see that stupid does not work. If they had, she would have been out of the job she has held since 1972, given that voting for her and other Democrats election after election has done nothing to alleviate the poverty and crime that afflict the residents of her district.
