Stand By Your Man or How Bible Thumpers turned Ken Paxton into a 'hero'.

Prestonwood Baptist Church gave him plenty of help.

But Team Paxton’s biggest coup, according to prosecutors, has been defunding and derailing the case for years. First, one of Paxton’s deep-pocketed supporters sued to stall the case; then his allies in Collin County government took up the fight amid pressure from North Texas tea partiers who chastised them for funding a “witch hunt.” At the same time, Paxton’s friends, his pastor, and even Republican state Representative Ron Simmons have sued his alleged fraud victims with the assistance of one of Paxton’s criminal defense attorneys.

Lots of good reading here.

Ron DeSantis Runs Crying Out Of Child's Birthday Party After Surprise Visit From Elsa

TALLAHASSEE, FL—Letting out a bone-chilling scream at the sight of the Disney princess, Gov. Ron DeSantis reportedly ran crying out of a child’s birthday party Wednesday after a surprise visit from Elsa. “No! I want to go now!” the sobbing prospective 2024 presidential candidate said at a backyard birthday gathering for a neighbor’s 6-year-old daughter, tears streaking his unicorn face paint as he wiped a mix of snot and cake frosting from his face onto the pants of his wife, who pleaded with him to let go of her leg and act like a big boy.


I love the onion.
