Photographs can display certain emotions. Even though it’s not a family photo and he’s not going to be all smiles, having pleasant thoughts would probably look softer in the photograph.

She was the daughter of a single woman; she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.

"We will not allow the breakdown of decorum and decency to prevent us from doing what the people of this state hired us to do." After a draconian anti-abortion bill succumbed to a filibuster late last night, Slick Rick Perry is calling another special legislative session in Texas. In announcing the session, which will begin July 1st, the Governor repeatedly named “protecting women” as one of the session’s goals, even though the bill would make it more difficult for women to obtain medically-necessary abortions.

SFB says: Not a bad insight. North Korea never explicitly stated that Austin was a target; this assumption was pieced together by Westerners, who analyzed several blurry photographs released by North Korean state media (photographs that, it should be noted, the DPRK released primarily for domestic propagandistic purposes). That being said, Rick Perry would still like you to keep in mind that Austin is a burgeoning hub for businesses in the US. —Seth @ SFB

I think the individuals in North Korea understand that Austin, Texas, is now a very important city in America, as do corporate CEOs and other people who are moving here in record numbers.

Gov. Perry believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it. But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government.
Catherine Frazier, press secretary for Texas Governor Rick Perry • Pouring a bit of heavily-couched water on the burgeoning secessionist movement within the state of Texas. In fact, it isn’t even limited to the Lone Star State — since the reelection of President Obama, secession petitions have been filed by (presumably) disgruntled voters in 30 states. The Texas portion of this discontent has furnished a petition with well over 25,000 signatures, the amount at which the Obama administration must review the list and issue a reply. Our guess? No go. Perry coming out against this movement is instructive, perhaps, in how seriously he now takes the rhetoric — back in May of 2009, Perry opted to stoke such sentiments, while speaking at a Tea Party rally in Austin. source

Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry, running mates? That’s a rumor that’s been floating around (based on this report), but both sides deny it, with Gingrich spokesperson R.C. Hammond saying “any sort of talks along those lines would be premature” and Perry spokesperson Catherine Frazier calling it “humbling but premature.” Funny, we’d argue it’s too late to have these kind of discussions.
