1. I won't even trouble myself with reading it.

I've listened to Dan Patrick's rants for way too many years. He's a scumbag, pure and simple.

4. That's the other jerk.

Dan Patrick might have trouble finding a second woman who would have him. Although I wouldn't have thought Ken Paxton would be very successful in that area either.

5. The Lone Star Project also responded with their comments about SB7.

Yesterday, Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick delivered a jaw-dropping litany of lies that makes even Donald Trump’s screeds pale in comparison. From beginning to end, Patrick made false claims about what his voter suppression legislation does and does not do.

Patrick, Greg Abbott, and Republican legislative leaders are not engaged in a factual debate over election reform. They are pushing voter suppression and overtly lying about the content and the effect of their bills.

It is always difficult for media to deal with politicians like Patrick who blatantly lie but do so with dramatic conviction. Too often, like Donald Trump early during his awful run, Patrick is not called out immediately, or sometimes ever, for his obvious lies. Instead, clearly false statements are played as counter viewpoints or legitimate back-and-forth with Democrats. This morning, though, two posts tagged Patrick for the Big Lie he is selling:

* “Patrick also claimed that the criticism of the bill was unwarranted because it changed nothing about any aspect of the voting process in Texas… If that’s the case, why is anyone objecting to SB 7? The reason is that Patrick was lying.” Popular Information, April 7, 2021
* “Notably, Patrick also claimed the new measures are needed because “a large percentage of Americans do not believe” in the 2020 “outcome.” This widespread GOP line — limiting voting is needed to restore voter “confidence” — comes after Republicans themselves stoked this situation by propping up Donald Trump’s lie for weeks.” Washington Post, April 7, 2021

6. He's probably betting that most people won't read the bill.
