Nothing like family harmony during the holidays
Drew Brees wants no part of his mother's political aspirations.
The NFL quarterback and Westlake High School graduate has told Mina Brees, an Austin attorney, to stop using his picture in TV commercials as she runs for a spot on Texas' 3rd Court of Appeals, saying their relationship is now "nonexistent" after souring six years ago.
"I think the major point here is that my mother is using me in a campaign, and I've made it known many times I don't want to be involved," he said Monday.
I'll bet Thanksgiving will be fun around their house.
If she can't get elected on her own merits and needs her relation to an NFL quarterback to get votes, what does that say about the stupid, star-eyed voters firstly, and secondly, what does it say about her fitness for the job? I hope she loses.
