Ex-Channel 5 Reporter Stinchfield Now Out to Expose the "Idiocracy" in D.C. ... As a Politician



This morning, MediaBistro directs our attention to Uncle Barky's item from yesterday about former KXAS'er Grant Stinchfield, who, after seven years on the job, left the NBC owned-and-operated in April so he could run for the U.S. House of Representatives. Stinchfield, whose wife Amy Vanderoef co-hosts WFAA's Good Morning Texas, is a Republican running against ... well, he doesn't say. Pete Sessions? Lives in his district. Kenny Marchant? Says so here. All he'll tell Ed is "we're not ready to make any decisions until we explore all possibilities."

Stinchfield's site is up and a runnin', even if doesn't say against whom. His blog's mostly a round-up of pieces done for KXAS -- at least the ones exposing things like "airport security flaws" and "disturbing issues inside many government agencies." He's also opposed to the feds spending money on homeless assistance programs, "an issue that should be left to your local government and private charities." And that's where we find the video above, which references a certain Mike Judge movie and features another former KXAS'er -- none other than FOX News's Gretchen Carlson, speaking of The Daily Show.

Some one running against Pete Sessions?   Well let’s look at his web page to see what he is about?   Huh?   More of the same crap?   Reminds me of two things:

1)      That Tea Party candidate who blew a “shoe in” run against Eddie B. Johnston (after her noted scandal-with some off the cuff comments about armed revolution).2)      The current saying that is going around “the beatings will continue until moral improves”. 

I wonder where this clown was when the previous administration upped the debt 6.1 Trillion Dollars?   I guess too that he has not seen the editorial that has been making the rounds authored by Warren Buffet either?

 Get out your hair shirts boys and girls!  Lets replace a turd with an even bigger one!

R-Texas, or Tea Party-Texas? That's where the cuckoo bananas story would be.

"...Emmy award winning reporter who has served the people of North Texas...."  Actually, Grant, you were serving the National Broadcasting Company, its executives and shareholders.

Washington DC without Pete Sessions would be like going to Sam's and being offered affordable smaller sizes of things you actually need.  Washington WITH Pete sessions is like a 'washateria' laundromat that has only bleach dispensers.

I thought he left to open a dry cleaners or a car wash or something like that. You go, Grant!

I have heard of the cesspool theory of politics the big pieces rise to the top.  There are a lot of big ones in all levels of government.
