Where's the Potty? If you know the answer, you may be qualified to be Harris County District Attorney

From Musings, witness the degraded level of public debate it's come down to in the Harris County DA's race:

Kelly Siegler, Assistant Harris County D.A. and candidate for Romancethal's job, wants you to know that:

"To put it bluntly, Judge Lykos, Mr. Leitner and Clarence Bradford don't know where the restrooms are in the office," she said.
These are the other candidates for the Harris County District Attorney.

She's on the hot toilet seat because her husband, Dr. Sam Siegler, sent a lot of the egregious emails to his friend, embattled Harris County D.A., Chuck Rosenthal. You know the pornographic ones, the race-baiting ones.

But hey, since she can find the potty at the D.A.'s office, she's the best qualified person for the job!
Is it me or is that just surreal? I'm sure somebody will point out the restrooms to the new DA. But who will let us know that top ADA's go home every night to race-baiting dinner conversations with their porn-sharing hubby? I doubt Siegler would have ever told us. She's too busy practicing her Nancy Grace imitation and bragging that she knows how to find the toilet.

When my 15-month old granddaughter can find the potty, then I'll get excited. Coming from a candidate for District Attorney, color me unimpressed.

I'm so embarrassed to be from Harris County. I'm taking the "Native Texan" bumper sticker off of my pickup.

Never mind this topic;
check out Houston's Fox 26 news story about the e-mail with the secret code word which refers to blacks as "canadians".
This story has more legs than a spider. They are also looks into the sheriff's house, no pun intended, they're really looking into who built his house.
Grits is going to need a Harris County news bureau......

I toured the white house once and was able to find a restroom no problem, on my many trips to our state capital found the facilities without ever an accident. I also was able to find the ladies room at Fenway. Seems like I have tons of career choices I didn't even realize were available to me.

"I also was able to find the ladies room at Fenway."

Part I. I will tell you where's the Potty! About 200 years ago a man named Gerald Potty of Jenkinshire New Hamshire began work on a system that would allow many a folk to do their number 1's and 2' in the house rather than going outside in inclement weather and the such.

Mr. Potty utilized a milk can and two 3" by 5" boards on top of the can. He then inserted six 2' by 2' holes in the can for the waste to flow. The problem with Mr. Potty's invention was, he forgot to make a 10" by 10" hole in the floor. Therefore, the mess was a disaster and Mr. Potty then sold his idea to another fella from Texas.

That great Texas Inventor was Maurice Crapper. Crapper's idea was to develop a flush system that took the waste out of the dwelling and carried it out and away to the fields for fertilizer. Crapper's idea was so revolutionary that he soon designed a bed pain that was not only removable from the head of the the pipe so in the winter folks could actually fling it out the window do to the lead pipes being frozen. Crapper's wife one cold winter's day did just that. Mrs. Crapper flipped the waste out so far it hit a man and his wife named Stool both in the head walking down the lane.

The Stool's were so insensed by being laden with frozen waste he and his wife decide to come back to the Crapper's residence later that night with a surprize of their own.
