Texas Farm Bureau—Texas Progressive Alliance Blog Round-Up
Here is the most recent Texas Progressive Alliance round-up. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas. TPA members are citizen-bloggers working for a better Texas.

There don’t appear to be any obvious winners in the wake of Rick Perry’s implosion and Herman Cain’s Black Walnut meltdown, according to PDiddie at Brains and Eggs. Unless you count Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, that is. And they were winning beforehand.
