In Waco, US District Judge Walter S. Smith has just ruled that the US Department of Health and Human Services can indeed stop sending money to Texas if Gov. Rick Perry and his GOP numbnuts keep trying to put Planned Parenthood out of business, essentially, by changing how it operates the Women's Health Program.
It's a sad turn of events. But, the legal ruling is certainly expected.
Perry and Greg Abbott will of course appeal.
I assume they'll lose at the appellate level, and then SCOTUS will refuse to grant cert.
So, soon enough, we'll be at eyeball-blink time. What will Tricky Ricky do?
Answer? If the Lege is still in session, he'll stay the course, and won't go back to previous funding. He doesn't want a tea party firestorm. If we're after the end of May, who knows.
