Rick Perry's latest oops moment - calling the Charleston shooting an accident - wasn't the only crass remark about guns last week. Ted Cruz also continued to make crass gun control jokes days after the shooting.
The South Carolina shooting was no accident. With 9 dead, now is not the time to make jokes about gun control and mass homicide.
Apparently Rick Perry and Ted Cruz don’t care - and are trying their best to downplay what really happened in Charleston. Continue reading this post »
**UPDATE** Democratic Senator Rodney Ellis has filed opposition to close the loophole allowing Texas parents to opt-out of vaccinations if they have "personal objections."

That's right, the charge is for bribery and abuse of office, but Rick Perry thinks it's about a veto. Maybe that's why he keeps losing these legal challenges.
In the statement to the press, Perry and his high-priced lawyers continued to misrepresent the charges against the former Governor. This case is not about Perry's right to veto anything.

The veto talk is just a smokescreen and Rick Perry knows this - just see his remarks from last August in New Hampshire:
Former Governor Rick Perry is at it again with his old antics of pretending he is “above the law.” But here’s the catch - no one is buying what his high-priced legal team is selling. Continue reading this post »
It seems like Rick Perry has more lawyers than OJ Simpson, and his high-priced legal defense team has already cost his campaign more than $1 million. This is in addition to $80,000 that taxpayers have already spent on his defense.
