C'mon, Jake, it's Chinatown Texas.

When it comes to Cornyn v. Stockman, this is a battle of degree, not kind. Neither of them are worth spit. Texas already has two loonies in the Senate, so replacing Cornyn with someone even loonier isn't going to change the overall voting all that much. It was Cornyn, after all, that hired "Box Turtle" Ben Domenech as his chief speechwriter--I doubt that Stockman could do worse, even if he tried.

And, it's worth adding that any primary challenge to Cornyn bleeds his resources and forces him to focus on the primary first. Probably not enough to enable a Dem challenger to win, but, still, one has to see Stockman's wildly inflated ego as a good thing in that light. I say, have at him, crazy person. Maybe they'll both self-destruct in the collision.

Either way ... the more Big Bad John has to spend of his campaign warchest, the better.
Stockman will, should he win (after all, Cornyn might walk in front of a bus) at least offer comedy relief compared with Tailgunner Teddy the Canadian Cubano.
