"In the 1850s, on the steps of the Waco courthouse, Wallace Jefferson's great-great-great grandfather was sold. Today, Jefferson is chief justice of Texas' Supreme Court. The governor who nominated him also nominated the state's first Latina justice. Rick Perry, 61, the longest-serving governor in Texas history and, in his 11th year, currently the nation's senior governor, says these nominations are two of his proudest accomplishments. Between 2001 and last June (time Perry has been Governor), Texas — a right-to-work state that taxes neither personal income nor capital gains — added more jobs than the other 49 states combined. And since the recovery began two Junes ago, Texas has created 37 percent of America's net new jobs."

Ha- I thought that Republicans NEVER mention the race/ethnicity of a person that they select for prominent positions. If a Dem had done this, the right wing would harp about how these were affirm action, blah blah blah.
I'm glad that he did appoint those ppl, but it doesn't impress me. I still wouldn't vote for him ever.

Good to know that Perry can be bought by big businesses much like Bush was. Nice find Casper.
