The following is a paid advertisement for the Craig James for the Texas State Senate Campaign.

Craig James, football star, television commentator, true Texan, and now he’s asking for your vote for Senator of the great State of Texas.

What does Craig James do for me?

The question should be what doesn’t he do? Craig James is a born and bred Texan who knows the hardships we feel in our day to day lives. Just how Texas is Mr. James?

- Just last year he had to cut his own firewood because the economy.
- His horses are all named Lightning and Twister
- Frito Pie is his favorite food
- He carries 5 firearms, one for each appendage
- When he eats a steak he starts with the fat and gristle
- In his free time he likes to prospect for oil
- He believes in spending more on high school football programs than high school educations

James promises to return Texas to the Texans. He’s a kindred spirit, a Patriot in every aspect, see below.

What about his family values?

Craig James is the ultimate family man, who goes to all ends of the earth to protect his kin. In 2009 he wouldn’t stand for it when his son was locked in a shed during football practice. Craig James used the power of his voice and a little legal action to assure justice was taken against the parties responsible for these actions. To James, Texas is a giant family, and he won’t let you get locked in any shed.

What about the big government lobbyists?

Craig James is absolutely against taking handouts from lobbyists. He believes that it is immoral for one is in a position to heavily profit through illegal back channels. You can trust that when a multi-billion dollar developer comes in trying to grease his pockets with tax free gift and money to build a landfill on a Wildlife Refuge, Mr. James will say no.

What does he feel about justice?

Craig James votes for the double death penalty. That is lethal injection, followed by the electric chair. It’s the only way to make sure someone is really, really dead.

Most of all, his service in chambers.

Craig James will lead any filibuster put before the legislature. He’s practically done it on television for the last 20 years.

A vote for Craig James is a vote for Texas. Don’t let him down at the polls.
