You weren't thinking about the headline, were you, Senator?

The headlines says, Cornyn: Perry 'unfair' in painting Hutchison as representing Washington

The actual quote, below, is significantly softer...

"Gov. Perry was able to posture this as a campaign[of], 'are you for Texas or are you for Washington?' " Cornyn told reporters by conference call. "Sen. Hutchison ended up being painted as someone who represented Washington, when clearly she has been representing the best interests of Texas in the United States Senate for a long time.

Texas has a lot to be proud of in terms of its strong economy…. It's quite a contrast to some of the bad decisions that are made in Washington. Unfortunately for Sen. Hutchison, she got painted as part of the problem rather than part of the solution, and I think frankly, some of that was unfair."

If I'm Rick Perry, I'm thinking "Mind your own business." And if I'm Kay, I'm mad for not saying anything until it didn't matter.
