It seems that Texas is filled with politicians competing with each other for the votes of right-wing extremists. The latest example of this came on Monday at a tea party meeting in the Fort Worth suburb of Bedford. As the Texas Observer reports, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and his re-election opponents in next year’s Republican […]
Our friends at Right Wing Watch have noted a lot of crazy coming out of Texas recently. Here are a few choice examples: On Wednesday Right Wing Watch posted video of self-styled “historian” David Barton pretending to know something about science. The head of Texas-based WallBuilders actually reveals that his knowledge of science is about as pitiful as his […]
It’s not all that unusual to hear ideologues throw up almost any argument, kooky or not, in an attempt to defeat something they don’t like. They’re simply hoping to sway enough voters (with whatever arguments work) to “win” a debate. But it can be startling when you realize that they really, really believe some of […]
State Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, just began her filibuster to stop legislation that intrudes on the private medical decisions women make in consultation with their own doctors. And Texas Eagle Forum President Cathie Adams can’t resist responding with nasty insults on her Twitter account. Adams has already called the senator “whining Wendy” twice and […]

Take, for example, Cathie Adams, president of Texas Eagle Forum, the Lone Star branch of Phyllis Schlafly’s far-right outfit. Adams proudly parades her prejudices on issues ranging from […]
Cathie Adams: Environmental Activists Are Marxist Earth-Worshipping Watermelons! (Or Something Like That)
Our friends at Right Wing Watch have a new post about Cathie Adams, president of Texas Eagle Forum and former chair of the Texas Republican Party, taking another ride on the Crazy Train: Yesterday, Cathie Adams, the president of the Texas Eagle Forum, delivered a presentation to the Southeast Texas Tea Party on the dangers […]
Cathie Adams, president of the far-right Texas Eagle Forum, has had more than four years to learn how to spell the name of the president of the United States and still can’t. She still seems more interested in making sure people know that his middle name is Hussein and that she thinks he’s a dirty […]
This has to be said: Cathie Adams, president of the far-right group Texas Eagle Forum and former chair of the Texas Republican Party, is probably one of the most hateful people in politics today. So it’s hardly surprising to hear that Adams characterizes the president of the United States as a brain-addled druggie. Our friends […]
Cathie Adams, head of the far-right Texas Eagle Forum, is in Ohio with other conservative evangelical activists to help get Republican voters to the polls in Tuesday’s presidential election. But in her parallel universe, in which democracy apparently is a one-way street, activists working to get out the vote among Democrats are little more than […]
