  •  She's just a prop to him (7+ / 0-)

    First, Perry used this 31-year old woman as a prop to justify/defend his bypassing of the legislature to sign an executive order. Now, he's attempting to use her to shut up his critics, and the MSM initially enabled him to get away with it.

    The clips were conveniently available for the MSM to show Perry meeting with her in her hospital room, giving her a ride on his motorcycle, and other assorted feel-good moments.

    Today, finally, the MSM followed up those clips with a one-liner to the effect that his claim wasn't true. It will be interesting to see whether the Sunday shows point out that he lied.
