    Annise is a Hero and in Jeb Bush’s State too. This is a foot in the door of Texas society and a positive one. The Media appose anything they think will generate public interest by kicking it around….Bastards!

    her election has certainly wound up the Xian fundies who threw so much mud at her in the hope of bringing her down.

    Annise Parker congradulations from down under, Australia – but Texas is still untra-conservative and still has “homosexual conduct” listed and writtne in the Texas Penal Code, even after the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas case!!!!

  4. I love how the left wing and foreigners get angry every time the US refutes their stereotypes.
