    Texas Emperor, sorry, Gov. Rick Perry might just be in the early stages of his run for the White House.

    Tuesday, he won yet another term as Texas governor [sigh], and almost immediately took to the television and radio airwaves, first on the “Today” show, then “Fox & Friends,” followed by the Glenn Beck radio show — whew, busy boy — and that’s just today.

    He also plans to appear on "Morning Joe" Friday before moving on to the Laura Ingraham show. Then it’s off to an address at the Heritage Foundation to promote his book, “Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America from Washington” and, like the little equal-time trooper he is, he takes on Jon Stewart on Monday’s edition of “The Daily Show.”

    That right there will be a DVR moment.

    But wait, Texans re-elected him to be a governor not a media darling. No worries, Perry said he’s a good multi-tasker, according to a blog post on the Houston Chronicle website.

    Can’t really argue that one. He’s been passing himself off as an effectual Texas leader all the while harboring what must be a desire to relocate to Washington, D.C., the very town he slams repeatedly, when really he’s just another good-hair pretty-boy who looks like a televangelist ... and that takes talent.

    Bruce Felps owns and operatesEast Dallas Times, an online community news outlet serving the White Rock Lake area. He voted for Rick Perry to govern, damn it, not go on TV. Whoa, wait a minute, no he didn’t.
