CENSORED!

The San Antonio Express News has Peggy FiKak run a political blog called "Strange Bedfellows.," at http://www.mysanantonio.com/specials/weblogs/politics/

She strikes me as someone who is objectively neutral in her politics but only writes about what Rick Perry does every damn day.

I just wanted to say, Peggy, you need to keep an eye open for the Washington Post Ombudsman's gig, because you would do an helluva job.

Check this out:

Peggy FiKac: Too Hot

Democrat Chris Bell says it's "morally offensive" that the state is diverting money from helping low-income people with their utility bills while taxpayers pick up the hefty utility bill at the public housing used by Gov. Rick Perry.

Perry spokesman Robert Black called it "silliness" for Bell to bring the Governor's Mansion electric bills into the argument.

Bell's camp called on Perry to "either cease collecting" the fee from ratepayers or use it "for its intended purpose."

Black noted it was lawmakers who voted to divert the money into the state's general-purpose fund. He also said several utilities voluntarily offer discounts -- including TXU at Perry's urging, he said. Black said Perry's proposed budget included funding for the program, but he doesn't have authority to add it to the budget approved by lawmakers.

Perry also didn't add the issue to the special session agenda, which he could have done. Black said Perry needed to be sure lawmakers focused on the priority of school finance and tax overhaul legislation.

What of the mansion's electric bill, which Bell said was $4,843.41 in July 2005 and $5,522.86 this May?

Black said the 150-year-old mansion is a public building open to tours, not just Perry's home. He said more than 500 tourists a month walk through the Governor's Mansion in the summer.

"What does he prefer?" Black asked. "That the state use really big blocks of ice?"

No word on whether the tourists close the door behind them.

Is that some hi-larious shit from that Mr. Black fellow or what? And such an amusing subject?

Peggy,

I think I understand.

Rick Perry has no control over the actions of the Leg.

He has no control over the operations of the Governor's Mansion.

And he has no ability to aleviate the privations of the poor, elderly and disabled utility users.

But he somehow MANAGES TO MAKE IT ONTO THE PAGES OF THE EXPRESS NEWS EVERYDAY.
Your gov-love will do you no good, unless you are a dude.

Peggy,

Why didn't you print my post from yesterday?

All I said was that Perry is disengenuous about not being able to limit utility use in the governor's mansion and his ability to help the suffering of increasingly rising fuel bills for the poor, elderly and disabled.

Plus SA Express News gives him way too much ink compared to other candidates, because this paper is conservatively biased.

And I implied he is a closeted homosexual, which is nothing new.

Are you censoring stuff you don't like? Tisk Tisk
