Seriously, are you so bitter that there's still fun in it for you to proverbially shit all over Texas? You didn't like it here, so you left. Good, nobody wants a spoil sport around. But it's a place beloved by so many and it's off-putting for those of us who love our home but also want to learn about presidential history.

Hey, in my answer to that question, I said I’d rather live in Texas under Bill Clinton than Missouri under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad!  That was a positive answer, wasn’t it?

I’m sorry if my shots at Texas are inhibiting you from learning about Presidential history.  According to my dashboard, this will be my 6,132nd post, so that must mean I diss Texas in, oh, let’s say about 5,800 posts in order to make it difficult for people to learn about Presidential history.  I really should get my priorities straight.  I guess I shouldn’t just take things for granted and assume that people have more than a one-track mind, or that people are capable of just ignoring what they don’t like and paying attention to what interests them.  I really should be more considerate and maybe cut down on the subtlety and irony.  It’s probably best if I don’t editorialize and instead try to be nicer and maybe even use smaller words because, after all, there might be Texans reading this site from their shitty state.

Oh, goddamn, I’ve gone and done did it again, didn’t I?  My bad.  I’m on my best behavior starting now.    

Also, did you call me a “spoil sport”?  Did you get that from a book of insults from the 1940s?  I don’t think I’ve been called a “spoil sport” since I was like 7 or 8 years old and would decide to overturn a game of Monopoly or Life or Sorry! and mess everything up because we were getting close to the end and I was losing and I wasn’t cool with it (I also cheated indiscriminately).  

Anyway, it’s funny to be called a “spoil sport” by someone who I am assuming isn’t my grandmother, so thank you for that, June Cleaver.  And, while I’m at it, I didn’t “proverbially” shit all over Texas; I think my comments about the state are usually candid and unequivocal.
