      relentlessly demagogued President Obama on his twitter stream.

      That is just not right.  He is supposed to be someone the state can look to as a NON partisan enforcer of the law.  How can you feel he will be fair when he shows such vehement hatred for the President, Democrats and progressives???

        was to clarify his degree.  I do not support his positions, at all.

          Texas A & M in Animal Science, 1972. Then apparently went to UT later.

          For you non-Texans, one's undergraduate university is how one affiliates, identifies, and vilifies other universities' graduates.  And Aggies and Longhorns are the two largest and feistiest university/alumni groups in the state.

          I am willing to guess that dim-bulb Perry continues to live in his college cheerleader days to some extent, and that he thinks challenging a UT student on singing the song will get him and all the Aggies in the state to back him up.  IANA psychologist nor psychiatrist, but there is a reasonable argument to be made that this is some of what is in operation here.  Or he's even less astute than we really think (hard to underestimate).

          Someone prove me wrong. Or come up with a more plausible theory.

            But Rick Perry is an Aggie and got a "D" in meat science, whatever that is.

              You must be nearby (AR or LA?) and know the tune if not the words.

              Yep, D in meat science. That's our Gov.!
