Okay, Now He's Ready to Go
Looks like Harris County Judge Robert Eckels has figured out what he wants to be when he grows up: a lobbyist with the law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski.
"This is a new stage for me to play on. It's an international firm, and it has a broad range of expertise," Eckels told the Chron. "I could have jumped last year if I was ready to go. But I wasn't. Now, mentally, I'm ready, and operationally, the county is ready."
Kind of reminds us of how Tom DeLay didn't bow out in time to give Shelley "DraculaCunt" Gibbs a fair chance in the election.
