Where have you gone Sam Houston, a state turns its lonely eyes to you.
Yes, it's true. Texas Gov. Rick Perry was proudly pandering to secessionists at the Austin tea bagging event today, saying he thought the Union was okay, but if Washington didn't shape up, you never know what could happen.
How insane is he? Even George Bush had enough sense to stand up to wacko secessionists. Anyone remember the West Texas shootout of 1997?
Anyone remember that Texas' great hero, Sam Houston, stood up to secessionists at the 1861 convention, even though it cost him the governor's mansion?
And now we have a governor actually pandering to the hate mongers?
To those moderates that may yet to have abandoned Perry's GOP, you need to step up to the plate. This is insane, I don't care if some pollster is telling Perry that he's boxing out his primary opponent with his pandering. This is nuts. Though I guess that's obvious to tea baggers.
