Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White of Houston, TX, has challenged our decades-long Governor, Rick "Good-Hair" Perry to a no-holds barred televised debate. Guess what? Governor Perry has declined to accept Bill's invite unless Bill releases copies of his 1990s-era IRS Form 1040s...? What the fudge? I bet Bill doesn't even have copies any more of those dad-gummed records. Does Perry still have his copies from the 1990s? Who cares? It's ancient political history whatever they show. I don't care about anybody's IRS 1040s except my own. I smell a chicken...?
Bill is a very successful popular businessman and politician (former Mayor of Houston). He is as sharp as a tack. Gov. Perry is a career politician with the State of Texas, except for a short stint on his family's ranch and a gig as an TAMU yell-cheerleader. Gov. Perry can be a dangerous man though...he has a CHL (Concealed Handgun License), and has been known to shoot coyotes, without warning, that approach him or his (pet-doggie). Hell, just about every lobbyist, politician, and wack-job Capitol visitor, i.e. State Executives, have a CHL and carry a pistol in their boot/bra/ass-crack, wherever.
NEW FLASH...now an Austin TV station (KVUE) reported yesterday that the Texas Department of PUBLIC SAFETY, who is in charge of Gov. Perry's security and the Capitol Security/surrounding buildings, will now have "high-powered" rifles at the ready, if needed. All visitors might want to consider wearing Kevlar when visiting the State Capitol as a result of this news. It looks like there will be enough fire-power there to start an insurrection or a legislative mutiny.
If I was Bill, he might want to Skype-in his debate with Gov. Perry if he can find those ancient IRS documents...
