More going for him than just his hair

Governor Perry has some good traits to go with the bad.

The guy is an aggie and a politician. That's two big strikes against him right there. He's done some big government style stupid stuff. But to give him his due, he's also in favor of some things I really like. Sometimes when he says things it could just be for the publicity, but that doesn't make what he says any less true. I prefer my Texan politicians anytime they're doing anything at all to upset the feds and the hippies. (After explaining to FDR that WWII rationing was needed because of distribution problems, not supply, and that Texas had plenty of oil and beef for its citizens needs, Coke Stevenson threatened to sic the Rangers on any federales who wanted to make an issue of Texans' right to drive to town and eat a steak. That's the sort of thing I'm looking for in an elected official)

At any rate, I think Sam Houston would approve of Perry more than he would Kay Bailey.
