Texas Gov. Plays the Evangelical Card
Texas Governor Perry may not be as adept as Bush and Rove at playing the evangelical card, but this is still pretty scary.
Even for Texas, the scene was remarkable: The governor, flanked by an out-of-state televangelist and religious right leaders, signing legislation in a church school gymnasium amid shouts of "amen" from backers who just as well could have been attending a revival.
The protesters were out, but there needs to be a bigger public outcry against this sort of thing.
It wasn't just the blatant blend of church and state that made the gathering in Fort Worth unusual. Advance publicity also attracted about 300 angry protesters - unheard of for the routine business of ceremonial bill signings.
