Texas Secretary of State Resigns

Former car dealer and Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams announced his resignation.

The position is widely viewed as a springboard on the way to higher political offices. Our current US attorney general, Alberto “torture can be fun” Gonzales, was one of three Secretaries of State under then-guv Bush.

Williams’ sole memorable act was to deny Carole Keeton Strayhorn calling herself by a name no one calls her by. The mother of former Bush Press Secretary Scott “PTSD” McClellan wanted the cute (but silly) right to insert “Grandma” in her name on the ballot, to better compete with Richard “Kinky” Friedman, in the last gubernatorial. Kinky generously offered her the use of the nickname “Asshole from El Paso,” but she declined.

The reason Williams gave for resigning was to “pursue other opportunities.”

Asked how many opportunities he was planning to pursue, he answered, “this many.”

(Side note: The Roger Williams Dealership, of Weatherford, TX has the single most sloppily designed, migraine-inducing web site of any Texas car mart, including the word “Default” inserted in the title, and 33 exclamation points on the home page alone)
