If You Didn’t Watch Rick Perry’s State of the State, Here’s a Helpful Diagram

Word cloud: Wordle; Text: Office of the Governor

If you missed Governor Rick Perry’s State of the State address this morning, the word cloud above should at least buoy any conversation you may have about it in the next week. Throw out “student” and “taxes” and you should be fine. The full text of the (prepared) speech is here.

Most popular words: Texas (45 times), Texan (19), work (26), student (19), job (16), tax (12). He also threw in eight “togethers,” which is promising. He did not mention abortion or immigration. State Democrats — through the One Texas PAC – responded with a video:


  • pbooty

    At least he loves America and doesnt spit in the face of the military by telling people they need to enjoy being socialists

  • Avid Reader

    Perry’s speech and this State Democratic video are both beyond silly.

    Haa, that video is a joke. Please, can’t believe you guys posted that mess.
