Living a mere 90 or so miles from Austin as I do, I fully concur with the Weekly Standard's take on the "Keep Austin Weird" crowd. There is just not much in this world as disagreeable as a Texas liberal. How you can live in the former Republic, so full of raw energy, entrepeneurial spirit and patriotism, and not have a deep appreciation of Cowboy George W., I don't know. The guy's not perfect, but he fits Texas like a glove. There's a reason he stays in Crawford instead of Kennebunkport.
