N.R.A. Stooge Stockman Challenging Establishment Stooge Cornyn

Getting in just at the deadline, N.R.A. stooge Rep. Steve "My Gun Is My Manhood" Stockman (Tin Foil Hat - TX) filed papers to challenge Sen. John "All Hat, No Cattle" Cornyn in the Republican/ New Confederate/ Stupid Party primary next year.  Tea party hero Stockman will be running to the right (!) of Cornyn, which should mean we'll be treated to a "how insane can you get" primary.  Stockman, of course, is known for his stunts rather than for doing anything productive (the perfect tea party guy, in other words), such as inviting Ted "Crap Pants Fever" Nugent as his guest at the 2012 State of the Union address, and for seeing how much he could afflict and shame poor people receiving assistance from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Cornyn is well-known as a political weathervane and a weasel, so a change out from Cornyn to Stockman, which is unlikely at this point but not out of the question (this is Texas we're talking about here), would be tantamount to exchanging a coward for a crackpot.  (It's not like Cornyn didn't see this coming, but he chose to try to appease the furthest, most fetid swamps of the Republican base, which is looking like more and more a futile exercise for the "establishment wing" of the party.)
