Now that the session is a wrap, Texas Monthly has released it’s Best and Worst of the Session list. Regarding Governor Big Hair:
Nothing better sums up his performance this session than his itinerary for Thursday May 28. With deadlines bearing down on a fractious Legislature, much of the people’s work still unresolved, he left Austin to attend a fundraiser in Houston for Congressman Michael McCaul, where he presented talk show host Rush Limbaugh with an Honorary Texan Award. From his State of the State address to his secession silliness to sine die, Perry preened for the hard-core Republican base.
If Rush Limbaugh being named an Honorary Texan doesn’t inspire you to go vote, I’m not sure what to tell you.
