I have to agree with the commenter who said, “There’s dumb and then there’s Texas dumb.” (Sorry Nicki!)

  1. Oh Geez. This just makes me..I don’t know what. I find it odd that she said to “make it easier for Americans..” but she also used “poll workers”. 1)I’ve never had a poll worker say my name aloud and you can just spell it for them to find you on the list 2)if the Chinese people in question are at the polls, then they ARE AMERICANS, too!
    My first name is VERY difficult for everyone to pronounce and I’ve gone my whole life spelling it out for people. That doesn’t mean I should change my name to accomodate others. It sounds like Ellis Island circa 1900 all over again….

  2. I’m not a Texan, I only live here! LOL And I agree with the sentiment. There is dumb and then there is Texas dumb. I had a whole list in my head of ways to prove that point but do i really need to? I don’t think so. Everyone knows its true! LOL
