Election 2016

esquire.comVoice Of The Shebeen: “Jesus, Pierce. Will you lighten up?”

In his short but colorful life, ol’ Bob Morrow has had his power stripped by the state Republican committee. This is because ol’ Bob’s political enthusiasms are so far off the rails that they may well presently be orbiting outside the Kuiper Belt. Yee-haw, TWC News in Austin, spin us the yarn.
