Point Austin: Rick Perry, Boy Scientist
When it comes to science, the Inquisition's got nothing on the guv
News Column September 16, 2011, by Michael King
"...I'm sure there will be plenty more to choose from, but my favorite moment of the Republican presidential campaign thus far was Rick Perry's suggestion that in matters of scientific understanding, he and Galileo Galilei have something in common. Amid the discussion of global warming ("discussion" is probably too generous, as only also-running Jon Huntsman has conceded he's "crazy" enough to believe the current science on man-made climate change), Perry responded to a reference to the overwhelming consensus of climate scientists by saying folksily, "Galileo got outvoted for a spell." In other words, Perry considers his dismissal of man-made global warming as akin to Galileo's defiance of the Pope and the Inquisition on the question of a sun-centered solar system...."

'Mighty White' of Rick Perry
Postmarks September 9, 2011
I thought it was "mighty white" of Rick Perry to put his campaign on hold and return to Texas for a couple of photo ops where he pretended to be "supervising" the fighting of the forest and wildfires.
I also thought it was mighty white of the tea party governor and tea party Legislature to cut $34 million – one third of its budget – from the Texas Forestry Service. I mean, did we not have wildfires elsewhere in Texas while the tea party guv and Lege were considering the state budget?
Talk about needing to use the Rainy Day Fund...."
