Pee For Texas.

The governor of Texas believes in trickle-down economics; he just peed all over the Lone Star's unemployed. 

From the

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has rejected $555 million in federal stimulus money that would expand state unemployment benefits.

Perry, an outspoken critic of President Barack Obama's $787 billion stimulus bill, accepted most of the roughly $17 billion slated for Texas in the plan.

But the governor turned down the unemployment benefits on Thursday because he says they would require the state to increase the tax burden on Texas businesses to fund an expanded program.

Hopefully Texas voters will return the favor when his time is nigh in 2010. 

I refer to the GOP as "Confederates." CSU/Sacramento Associate Professor of History Joseph A. Palermo must be reading JackRabbit Café, because he does, too.
