We also have an idiot Governor named Rick Perry. What do these two things have in common? Well, I don't blame Perry for the lack of rain, though perhaps I should. His solution is for Texans to pray for rain. I guess his god just doesn't care about Texas... or maybe Rick isn't praying hard enough. Sky Daddy needs his appeasement!
Even more idiotic is Perry's absolute hypocrisy! For example:
"You have to ask, 'Why are you taking care of Alabama and other states?' I know our letter didn't get lost in the mail," Perry, a Republican and frequent critic of the federal government, said after addressing a Texas emergency management conference.
Yes, this whining comes from the same man who talked about Texas seceding from the union and has rejected federal funds that could have helped many Texans. So let's see, we'll talk smack about the Federal government until things get really bad... then complain that the Feds aren't responding.
And this idiot stands a chance to become a leading Republican candidate for the presidency, perhaps as early as 2016. Well, he kinda fits the mold (Bachman, Palin, Trump...)
By the way, FEMA has made 20 emergency declarations for individual fires in Texas.
