Sam for Governor!

OK, I was going to completely ignore the "tea parties" that occurred yesterday, because to me, their mis-mash batch of protests (come on, pick one thing--you'll get more credibility!) was more like the gnats that gather around a lamp at dusk. You don't really pay attention to those, either, except to make sure they're not drowning in the lemonade.

BUT, I caught this little tidbit from the governor of my own state--Texas Governor Says Secession Possible. This treasonous dumb-ass needs an impeachment hearing right away! How DARE he fan the flames of idiocy with even a hint at such a possibility. Did we not fight a war about this? Does he really think such a thing would happen peacefully? And just how would this state support itself as its own entity? Are we not laying off workers just as fast as other states?

He followed his pal Sarah Palin's trail and rejected funds meant to assist this state as we fall deeper into the cataclysm, but then he one-upped her and introduced legislation that states "all compulsory federal legislation that directs states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties or sanctions or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding be prohibited or repealed." (Abe Lincoln's corpse just suffered a heart attack.)

I have always been proud to be a Texan. There's nothing stronger than a Texas girl. This state has a unique history that I have been proud to be a part of. But now, I'm considering a move out of this red miasma where our own governor fans the flames of stupidity. Just yesterday I said "at least he wasn't as embarrassing as Sarah Palin." Oh, how I spoke too soon!! Obviously reports hadn't come in yet as to what was being said down in Austin.

I did not vote for Rick Perry, not when he was Agriculture Commissioner, not when he was Lieutenant Governor, and I definitely have never voted for him as governor. And you better believe I will be voting against him come next election. I will gladly cast my vote for anyone other than this man. Even if it's for my cat Sam.
