Kay and Cornyn with Ft. Hood hero....

A funny story from PoliTex... Big John Cornyn and Kay both sent out press releases showing themselves with Ft. Hood hero Kimberly Munley (link). Excerpt follows...

Cornyn Shares the Glory with Fort Hood hero; KBH doesn't

Cornyn Hutchison with MunleySen. John Cornyn released a press release yesterday about a visit by Sgt. Kimberly Munley, a hero of the Fort Hood shotings, with both him and Sen. Hutchison. Munley will be at the State of the Union address.

Press release:

"Sens. Cornyn and Hutchison today met in Washington with Sgt. Kimberly Munley, the civilian police hero who took down Maj. Nidal Hasan when he launched a deadly attack on Fort Hood last year. Although Munley was hit in both legs and her wrist during the gun battle, she stayed on her feet and kept firing at the gunman. She is a member of Fort Hood's "Special Reaction Team," which trains for events like the Nov. 5 massacre.

Munley is in D.C. to attend the State of the Union as a special guest of the First Lady."

Here's what Hutchison's office released of the same photo op, with no mention of Cornyn.

HutchisonMunley "Today, U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) met with Sgt. Kimberly Munley. Sgt. Munley is the police officer responsible for ending the attack at Fort Hood."


I don't see what the big deal is honestly but it does remind me of when Kay jumped in front of all of those cameras in the heat of the Ft. Hood incident... and her poll numbers went down or at least stayed the same after all of that...

I think there was a pretty strong consensus amongst the Austin set that she was on television way too much and made some pretty serious mistakes because she did not have the full facts...

  1. I voted for re-election of both Cornyn and Beltway Kay.   Big mistake.   Both of them have a tin ear.   Never again!


Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
