Texas Governor Rick Perry responded Monday to criticism by President Obama regarding his position on climate change, calling the president's remarks "outrageous" and suggesting Mr. Obama was exploiting the fires for political purposes.Where to begin?

Let's start with the fact that it was the Secessionist who first used the wildfires as a political attack.
Moreover, it was the Secessionist who -- as wingers are known to do -- made climate change a political issue.
Texas is suffering through it's hottest, driest year ever. But global warming's a hoax!
