TX-Gov: Rick Perry Launches WashingtonKay.com

by: Phillip Martin

Mon Aug 17, 2009 at 02:41 PM CDT

Get your popcorn:

For 16 years, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has said one thing in Texas and done another in Washington. Visitors to the website www.WashingtonKay.com will learn of Senator Hutchison’s hypocrisy and the truth about her record, including insight on her broken promises and support of overwhelming debt, earmarks and bailouts.

In addition, www.WashingtonKay.com features a side-by-side comparison of Texas Kay vs. Washington Kay, videos of Texas Kay discussing the $700 Wall Street bailout in Texas one day before Washington Kay voted for it, as well as the “Top 10 Reasons to Record a KBH Interview.”

Visitors to www.WashingtonKay.com can download their own “Kay Bailout Bucks” and help keep Washington Kay accountable by reporting additional flip-flops.

As the “Kay Bailout Express” rolls through Texas on the trail of Washington Kay, Texans are also being asked to submit their own pictures to www.WashingtonKay.com and post them on Twitter with the hashtag #WashingtonKay.

Governor Rick Perry is going to drag Senator Hutchison into one of the nastiest, mud-throwing fights we've seen in Texas, and it all will be well documented online. Her negatives are going to grow, and she will become more and more conservative by the day.

As they race for the bottom, Texas families are only going to be left behind.

One post that website makes takes issue with Kay's back-and-forth on her resignation, something which liberal blogs have been hammering at for quite awhile.  Perhaps Rick Perry is using an argument that originated on this blog..?

Rick Perry probably pulls up BOR every day. But only to find out who his latest gay lover is. Just in case Anita asks.

On a serious note there are a lot of Democrats mulling voting in the Republican primary because they think that nothing could be worse than Rick Perry and so Kay Bailey Hutchison is the lesser of two evils even for Democrats.

They should think again.

Very good point. But how is it possible to think about such things? It's not healthy.

If I were going to vote in the GOP (3.00 / 1)
primary (and I'm certainly not; I'm a Democratic precinct chair), I'd vote for Rick Perry. A Democrat has a legitimate chance against Perry, and let's not kid ourselves, Kay Bailey would likely win the general election fairly easily.

People are sick and tired of Rick Perry. His supporters are the same 20% of dead-enders who thought, up until the bitter end, that W was doing a good job as president. They're also the majority of people who vote in GOP primaries. I say let them have their way; it's the best chance for a Democrat to win back the Governor's Mansion.
