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....*

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....
