You've gotta love it when the candidates try to appeal directly to Texans. Especially when they realize that our high holy day is two days before the primaries. Here's what I've learned so far:

Hillary Clinton works as hard as my granddaddy did. Sure, she may not actually be bailing hay or driving a truck, but being a lawyer and a politician is pretty much exactly the same:

March 4 is apparently as significant as the Battle of San Jacinto. And Mike Huckabee is Jim Travis. Except for the dying-at-the-Alamo part:

Exactly! That was all Google images and power point, my friend. I love how they used a still from The Alamo movie with Billy Bob Thorton, too. Now that's inspiring!

I don't think it's directly from the Huckabee campaign, but rather from their supporters. Check out the website credit at the end.

I couldn't watch the ad to the end - it was just too much. It was a lot like watching our local access "city news" - straight up power point!

Hillary's ad was going for the same way Fred Thompson ran for Senate - wasn't it the red truck and him in flannel. It worked for him...not so much for her.

Boy am I glad we won't see any ads here in TN until October or so. We were pretty ignored in the primary.
