Straus wins (going away), Ken Paxton can't quit, Republicans can't stop fighting.
Oh, and there's that budget mess to deal with.
It's Lege time, which means there's only 20 days left until State Sen. Dan Patrick rolls out yet another attention-getting group that he'll quickly abandon after the benefits to his planned State-wide race are exhausted.
Voting down both Sen. Patrick and former Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Paul Bettencourt (R - Quitters Station) in one election cycle would almost be too much to hope for.
Until then, get ready for the cuts and howling, both are going to be too extreme.
