This Week's Carnival of Revolutions:
Carnival Home Base:
Rick Perry: "Adios, Mofo."
We were trying to get the governor to give us details about his education plan. He's releasing it today, and he didn't want to give out details a day early.
"Adios, Mofo." The way he said it was also pretty hilarious.
While some may consider this tacky, or unfortunate, or inappropriate, I happen to think it's awesome. It was unfortunate, however, that Perry felt compelled to apologize.
On a more serious note, with incumbent Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison declaring that she's running for reelection to the Senate rather than for Governor, this race is now Perry's to lose. Another Republican, Carole Keeton Strayhorn (formerly Rylander) thinks she is going to somehow snatch the GOP nomination away from Governor Perry, but it's just not going to happen.
The food chain:
With Hutchison out, Strayhorn will have to work toward convincing droves of Democrats to cross over and vote for her in the Republican primary. And that's just not going to happen in the kind of numbers necessary to unseat Perry, particularly as Democrats will be able to vote for Chris Bell, the anti-DeLay.
Only in America:
Again, this only benefits Governor Perry, whether his most strident critics realize it or not.

I liked Ms. Strayhorn better when she was Carol Keaton Rylander. And you're right, she's not going to be governor.

James... Do you think that was a very nice way for the next Gov. of texas to comment? (jerk)... You are going to have to be nice at least until after the election! Smile and start kissing those babies!...
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 24, 2005 03:36 PM
the next governor of Texas is Kinky Friedman.
Posted by: trey at June 24, 2005 08:22 PM
Who is Kinky Friedman?...Is he the drag queen from Austin?
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 24, 2005 09:31 PM
This only convinces me Perry is more of a "man of the people" than advertisements lead you to believe. I'll vote for him just because he had the guts to say that. Keep on keepin' it real!!!
Posted by: John Q. at July 1, 2005 11:04 AM
Actually, the drag queen from Austin is not really a drag queen, per say. He is a hobo in provocative womens clothing, but definitely not a drag queen. He still looks like a hobo man......and his name is Leslie.
