"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

The eyes of Texas

Perry spoke about Wendy Davis and abortion in Dallas.  His office gave this statement to the New York Daily News:

Perry’s office defended his statement, saying Friday that he was “praising Sen. Davis for her success despite coming from difficult circumstances.”

Two things:  it is not insignificant this statement was made to a New York newspaper, and not one in Texas.  It is also not insignificant that this statement came from the Governor's office, and not the Governor.

And frankly, just the fact that newspapers in New York that aren't the New York Times are paying attention to what our Governor says, is something new.

The whole world is watching.  The rock that has rested over Texas politics, the rock even Rick Perry's futile and foolish run for the GOP nomination for President, couldn't remove, may have finally been shifted.

This may get very interesting....*

*If you're curious to see what happened, this is an excellent six minute video summary.

 And yes, the difference between the Governor and his office is very real. The boy don't know when to shut up.

I'm gonna start some popcorn....

Our governor is so bad that the Republicans are trying to dump him. Trying to turn over a LePage. I'm hoping they pay a big price for inflicting him and his raft of crooks on our state.
