    Are ghoulish. Barbaric. Oklahoma's recent horror show sickened me. Texas and Florida are two other states that need a remedial course in what it means to be part of the Union. If they can't civilize themselves, maybe we ought to let them secede. Rick Perry is one of the the most vacant, stupid people ever in politics. He's is a product of .... wait for it ... KARL ROVE.

      Hard to make the case that this Union of ours is civilized, especially vis-a-vis the issue of capital punishment.

      Lots of states pushing to execute people not simply the two you mention.

      But I share your revulsion of executions.
