Gov. Rick Perry: Texan of the year - Ha!

Certainly not my Texan of the year and I have yet to meet anyone today who disagrees with me. But if you a have room full of so called non-partisan kiss asses anything is possible. The Texas Legislative Conference submitted a press release of their selection today:
Governor Rick Perry has been named Texan of the Year by the Texas Legislative Conference, according to conference Advisory Committee chair Robert Howden.

Perry will be presented the award on Friday, March 23, at the conclusion of the 41st event. He will be joining an array of prominent past honorees since 1974 that includes First Lady Laura Bush, President George W. Bush, Barbara Jordan and Lloyd Bentsen.

The Governor has also offered a visionary transportation plan know as the Trans-Texas Corridor which will be a topic of the conference on March 23. In addition, passage this past summer of property tax reform was led by Perry and will also be a panel topic discussion at the conference.
Visionary transportation plan known as the Trans-Texas Corridor? More like visionary land grab of the people!

Tell that to the farm and home owners of Texas.

Only in Texas this does this kind of absurdity continue to happen.
