Best Fearless Underdog: Lorenzo Sadun

When Tom DeLay stuck it to Austin with redistricting, Democrats felt angry but powerless – just as DeLay intended. Despair reigned as no donkeys filed to run in Congressional District 10. But after the primary, a humble UT instructor decided that injustice must be fought, damn the odds, and Lorenzo Sadun filed as a write-in. Make no mistake – this isn't a fella who'll be entering every political race just for the sake of it (no disrespect intended to Leslie or Jennifer Gale). Sadun is serious, and he has been pounding the pavement from here to Houston, convincing Texans that Republican power doesn't have to be a fait accompli. A win would be miraculous, but even if he loses, the math professor will have given a great civics lesson.
