Scenes from Texas: Perry camp prepares to party at the Salt Lick


Texas Gov. Rick Perry and his supporters are ready to celebrate a victory in Tuesday's Republican primary against Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and GOP activist Debra Medina. And what Texas party would be complete without a few cases of Shiner Bock, which are in ample supply at Perry's election night headquarters - the famed Salt Lick barbecue restaurant in Driftwood.

    Perry is an idiot. He is what is bad about "politics" He pardoned Tim Cole today, so he can have some nice headlines the day of the election. It could have been done MUCH sooner, but that wouldn't benefit Mr. Perry. Idiot.

    Salt Lick, nasty name very good 'que.

    Fortunately, Pompadour Perry was no where to be seen, so I was able to keep it down.

    Re: Medina. Did flight school personnel lie? If Gore had won FL, would 9-11 have been called off?

    OH, GREAT 😦

    The secessionist wins. I guess Texas is one step closer to becoming the country that separates the U.S. from Mexico. Good riddance!
