Less To This Than Meets the Eye

According to SurveyUSA, Rick Perry's approval rating has jumped 6 percentage points in a month. The Quorum Report calls this "solid"; I call it saturation bombing by Perry's blatantly false feel-good advertising blitz. Do we really expect his 47/48 split among African-Americans to continue? Let's see what his numbers look like next month before we start worrying about Sam Houston spinning in his grave at the prospect of this mouth-breathing sock-puppet setting the record for longevity in the Governor's Mansion. In the meantime, our old pal Lon Burnam (I knew him WAY back in the Texas Populist Alliance days) demolishes the "happy news" coverage of the not-so-special session.
