    Kay Bailey Hutchinson announces challenge to Rick Perry

    This is some of the best news I have ever heard. Perry has been a disaster, taxing just about everything that can be taxed, and also attempting to force mothers by law to vaccinate their children for HPV or face criminal charges. This was overturned by the Texas legislature.

    But the best part about her running? As she stated today "I don't know what Rick Perry calls the Trans-Texas corridor, but when I take office, I will call it dead."

    She has my vote in the Republican primary**. Screw that RINO Rick Perry.

    ** Unless Kinky Friedman runs.

    # Voted YES on recommending Constitutional ban on flag desecration. (Jun 2006)
    # Voted YES on constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. (Jun 2006)
    That tells me all I need to know about her. Way too quick to want to amend the constitution. Neither of those issues is worth an amendment to the constitution.

    Edited to add: now that I have made it all the way through the "On the issues" page, I don't see her appeal. She is a typical republican, nothing I see stands out.

    I agree, it seems that Hutchinson believes she has business in people's personal lives and that she believes everyone should abide by her definition of patriotism.

    She is old Conservative, so last season.

    Ann Richards on How to Be a Good Republican:

    "1. You have to believe that the nation's current 8-year prosperity was due to the work of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, but yesterday's gasoline prices are all Clinton's fault.

    2. You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own.

    3. You have to be against all government programs, but expect Social Security checks on time.”

    From what I've seen, I'd vote for her. Seeing how the Dems have goat ****ed everything they've touched since '07, I would bet she has a better than average chance.

    huh?

    The repubs have had total control of Texas since 2002.

    But Hutchinson will likely beat out Goodhair Perry, a slight improvement at best.
