Oh, look, Blake Rutherford decided to talk about something besides his love of Twitter and the death throes of newspapers for once. Blake’s Think Tank blog is reporting that Democrat Tyler Denton is weighing a primary challenge to Lt. Gov. Bill Halter. Based on Blake’s information, it appears that Denton is currently employed as a sound check roadie for U2, so this would be a significant step down in actual responsibility.
Pfft. I’m not even convinced this guy is real. “Tyler Denton.” It’s like he’s just stringing together names of random towns in Texas. Hey, I can do it, too: “Dallas Lubbock” is planning a run for attorney general! “Austin San Antonio” is thinking about running for Congress! Whatever.
UPDATE: Actually, now that I think about it, I wish my name was “Austin San Antonio.” There’s just no way a guy with a name like that wouldn’t be getting laid all the time.
UPDATE: Oh my God, it’s true!
