    Brian Williams showed his liberal disgust with capital punishment in Texas.

    And was horrified when the audience applauded.

    Perry's answer was awesome. He didn't give an inch.

    This is why Perry will eventually prevail over Romney and Obama. He doesn't back down from a fight.

    The audience was friendly to start with, and while the question was loaded, or meant to be anyway, no one can produce a case of an innocent man dieing on Perry's watch.

    That's basically because it was Perry that dismantled investigators looking into whether or not that has happened.

    This isn't going away.

    Actually, the only people who are upset about career dirtbags getting executed are the kind of people who would never vote Republican, anyway.

    No politician has come out publically against the Death Penalty since Mike Dukakis said he wouldn't want the man who raped and killed his wife executed.

    So keep playing the little violins for baby-burning wife-beaters, the rest of us aren't playing along.

    How much has the murder rate in Texas gone down since Perry executed over 200 prisoners?

    Brian Williams is just another out of touch lefty media stooge, albeit a nicely dressed one.

    Perry is a politician. He knows he is playing to the majority of the american public when he says he is cool with it.

    Clinton understood the dynamic very well. He scheduled an execution the week before the NH primary and made sure it went down. Made him look tough on crime and helped him win. (That particular execution has even fans of the death penalty unhappy about the methods Clinton took to make sure he had his execution right before the election)

    Perry got the best of all possible worlds. He got to rub his support for a popular program into the face of an unpopular (with the crowd) reporter

    Those 200 plus executed prisoners won't be murdering anyone and that's a fact!
