MSNBC is now picking up on the story of Gov. Perry of Texas hinting that the Stimulus Bill may be such a blow to the constitution that Texas may have to secede from the Union. But according to MSNBC, while Perry was making the comments, the crowd started chanting, “Secede, secede, secede …” We’re going to try to find out more. But from what we can tell, Perry didn’t seem to have a problem with that. We’re also trying to get comment from Perry’s office on his current position on possibly taking his state out of the Union.
