TX-Gov: What Press Conference Did the Dallas Morning News Watch?

This was the report from the DMN about Hutchison's announcement yesterday:

Headline: Hutchison's accusations kick off a war of words with Perry rep.


The sparring over fund-raising numbers highlighted one of the most explosive days in what could be a long, bruising primary battle between two titans of the state Republican Party.


“Explosive?” “Titans?” “Brusing” Ok, I know where this is going…



Seriously though — when did newspapers become the hypemasters for the GOP? Did they see the same press conference as the rest of us did? How can they say its a clash of the titans if Senator Coward STILL ISN'T EVEN IN THE RACE!

Does this really look like someone that is ready to rumble?

I didn't think so.
