Perry practices smart politics

Everyone makes mistakes.  Some are unforgivable.  But what also makes mistakes unforgivable, whether they are mighty or minor, is the actor’s refusal to issue a real apology.  Today, Perry smartly issued a mea culpa for mandating HPV vaccinations in Texas.  This was smart both because it spoke to those who were actually offended by the mandate and because it de-claws those who had no dog in the fight, but hope to make it a damaging political issue.

    If he does that in DC, the legislature won’t do the right thing. It’ll be permanent.

    Governor Perry has always appeared to me to be a no nonsense kind of guy. I don’t think he is going to have any problem with the media. He has been Governor for nearly 12 years.
