don't mess with texas

Somebody set the Texas Governor's mansion on fire early this morning. Thankfully, no one was injured as it's under renovation while Governor Goodhair lives in a pricey rental that technically isn't even in Austin (which is unconstitutional, but apparently just a detail).

Now, listen. It's no secret that we don't particularly care for the current occupant of the office. But this is reproachful to a degree we can't even express. If you burn down the governor's mansion, you are not messing with the governor. You are messing with Texas.

And we do not stand for that kind of behavior around here.

I'm just glad a lot of the historical items were removed due to the remodeling. Had Texas artifacts been lost, there would prolly be a public hanging of whoever did it.

God Bless Texas!
