From The Corpus Christi Caller.com -

  The raucous Tuesday night filibuster victory was short-lived for Democrats and those opposed to restrictions on abortion. Just over 12 hours passed before Gov. Rick Perry called another special session of the Legislature, instructing lawmakers to again take up abortion, transportation funding and juvenile justice.

Some comments -

Perry and his ilk have some gall sticking their noses where they don't belong and wasting tax payer money doing it. The business they should be taking up is Windstorm Insurance Reform or matters that belong in the realm of the the State. Does Texas no longer have any honest or righteous men that can stand on their own? This brand of politics sickens and shames me. It will be the downfall of this state and of this country if conscience doesn't take back control soon.

Amen!!!!!!  The Governor Rick "The Debator" Perry and his band of i---- Senators do not represent the people of Texas.  They represent and serve the small minority of wealthy closed minded Republicans who attempt to convince themselves of their moral superiority, by forcing upon everyone their conservative way of thinking.  I suggest they enjoy their day, because it is soon to be over.

Ricky, if you're scared, say you're scared. Instead, now you're doing the Pan Dulce treatment.

From Huffington Post:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) may have offended state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), the woman who famously filibustered an anti-abortion bill for 11 hours on Tuesday, when he said that she should have "learned from her own example" as a teenage mother that abortions are never okay. But Perry claims he was only trying to pay her a compliment.

Perry's office told the New York Daily News on Friday that Perry was “praising Sen. Davis for her success despite coming from difficult circumstances.”

In a speech to the National Right to Life Convention on Thursday, Perry pointed out that Davis was the daughter of a single mother and then became a teenage mother herself at age 19. She went onto graduate from Harvard Law and was elected to the Texas state Senate in 2008.

"It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters," Perry said.

Davis responded to Perry's comments on MSNBC Friday morning.

"I would say to him that I had the privilege of making a choice about the path I chose for my life, and I am so proud of my daughters, but I could never for a moment put myself in the shoes of another woman confronting a difficult personal choice," Davis said, "and it really isn't for him to make statements like that."

Dubious,

Actually I was thinking about one of the nicknames that is used in lieu of Richard and the tie in to the satire I posted about E.D. However, I do also see your point about interchanging the consonants. LOL!

Rick Perry is a first-class twirfle, and should His Majesty choose to run in 2014, he will be GONE! Conditions are changing here in Texas, as they are getting a bit "Wendy"-er.

You might want to proofread your headlines Dubious. I think that there was a typo regarding one of the vowels. LOL!

But didn't Rick prove that he was the master debater when he ran for president?
