Rick Perry is not a friend of Texans

Rick Perry did not show up to the Texas Straw Poll today. Apparently, he sent a video. But here's the kicker: in his pre-recorded speech, he claimed there were no Texans on the presidential ballot. Did he just conveniently forget about Ron Paul? What's his deal?

Oh, I get it. Ron Paul challenges establishment Republicans. Rick Perry is an establishment Republican - and quite a corrupt one to boot (c.f. the immunization scandal over the last two years). How long will it take Texans to realize that Rick Perry is not their friend?

The bad always tries to drive out the good. Now you know that Ron Paul is one of the good guys...
