Link to that website.

Looks like they want to link themselves to the Tea Party movement.  And, um, heh. Dan Patrick is the founder of it And, even though this is a PAC, they don't want any money? Heh. 

From Postcards from the Lege

With a handful of exceptions, the House members who joined Patrick’s group are not heavy-lifters under GOP Speaker Joe Straus. And most of the key lawmakers who helped elect Straus — Reps. Jim Pitts, Dan Branch, Burt Solomons, Charlie Geren, Jim Keffer, among others — aren’t on the list. Neither is Straus.

The Wheel's Still in Spin thinks it's a purity pledge

Leaving the problems with the first principle aside, these are all motherhood and apple pie platitudes. I don't see anything in these core principles that Democrats don't support as well. Claiming ownership of such platitudes, implying your political opponents don't share those values, may make for good politics, but it doesn't make it true.

The tough part of governing is applying these platitudes to specific problems facing society. For example, how do you limit the size of government and still provide a strong military and protect our borders? How can you protect life and uphold Judeo-Christian values while letting tens of millions of Americans struggle without health insurance? How do you honor the Constitution's guarantee of free speech without allowing speech that's offensive to family values?

From Blog Houston

We also have today's announcement from Dan Patrick that he is forming a new group, the Independent Conservative Republicans of Texas, which will surely stand out from those dastardly dependent, not-conservative other Republicans of Texas (anyone who happens to get in KDAN's crosshairs on any given day, we imagine).

UPDATE: Hah. Karen Hughes says the group is a little *undemocratic*- Texas Tribune

Like that embarassing ad Sid Miller put in the paper a while back said: "You can tell a lot about a person by who he associates with." (This was the caption underneath a big photo of Sid, wearing a big, goofy grin, while standing next to Sarah Palin.)

We get it, Sid. Boy, do we...
