    "Lame Stream Media"? You're better than Sarah Palin one-liners.
    Perry, instance national coverage. Today on ABC News with George.
    Cuomo scandal? Nothing.

    Yeah. Keep believing that the media is unbiased. Say hello to the unicorns you meet.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    I see no reason to buy a mirror when I own dozens of them.

    Try looking in one once in a while yourself.

    The money for that office doesn't come from the county, it comes from the state!! If you live in TX you are paying for that office.

I doubt Governor Perry was the only one in Texas who thought she should go. Why can't it simply be that he wanted to take out the trash and see new leadership in that office?

    Bottom line, however, is that government leaders use the power of the purse to get things done - always have, always will. Better line them all up and start the parade to the courts.
    Good Sunday morning, CJ. We have rain and cold...again!

    From what I have read, she is refusing to resign because Perry will appoint a *gasp* Republican to take her place, which is SOP - a Democrat governor would do the same thing for his party. I don't know what the current political makeup of the department is, but I gather it is mostly Democrat. Is one Republican voice that scary to her? My question is what her sentencing involved. If she is expected to serve time in jail, how does that benefit anyone? And is there no way to remove an elected official under Texas law if they won't resign?

    Are you saying that Democrats don't get indicted?

    Not as result a purely political conduct, no they don't. The Democrats are starting down a road the results of which would be unpleasant for all involved. Using the prosecutors office as a political weapon opens a can of worms that shouldn't be opened.
