Perry doesn’t look like a ham sandwich.
Austin, it figures...
I swear I didn’t see your reply before mine, but great minds and all that.
Gee... anyone want to bet at least one of the Grand Jury members is a shemale with a ponytail?
It is the Scott Walker strategy.
And remember, it was Texas that put the false charges on DeLay.
Yeah, how dare he yank "their" money!
Welcome to political show trials.
He is in good company.e.g. Tom Delay. A nuisance indictment - we will use it as an effective campaign prop.
No prob!! Obama’s people are going to make his life MISERABLE........MISERABLE!!! And EXPENSIVE!!! He went up against the Obama MAFIA.

Sounds like a Ronnie Brown special
He was exonerated of all charges.
And his political career was destroyed in the process just the same.
Ok so a governor is indicted for abuse of power. Do I see something wrong this? Where is the indicted for “abuse of power” for a certain person with Big Ears and enjoys golfing while Rome is burning?
Travis County is the a$$hole of Texas.
It is long past time for the Texas legislature to permanently remove all authority of the Travis County District Attorney’s Office to conduct political prosecutions of state officials.
Transfer all jurisdiction to the Texas Attorney General’s Office where it belongs.
