McCain-Palin Ain't No Mavericks – Say Mavericks

October 7, 2008 · Leave a Comment

It turns out there are real Mavericks out there.  I mean real Mavericks.  The family who still carry the family name in Texas.

Turns out there was an original Maverick – back in the 1600’s.  The problem is that he was progressive.  He got in trouble in Boston for standing up for indentured servants.  So much so that the fled to Texas.

Only he decided not to brand his cattle – he was more interested in the land.  So over time unbranded cattle were called – you guessed it – “mavericks.”

It turns out the family doesn’t much care for the old conservative politics of McCain-Palin.

Turns out the Real Maverick is “That One” Barack Obama.

Oops, McCain-Palin got another talking point wrong.

Don’t try and understand ’em.

Just rope and throw and brand ’em.

Read all about it in Who You Callin’ a Maverick? by John Schwartz in the New York Times.
