Lit­tle testy, aren’t we?

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 3 Texas Di­gest item “Perry: Napoli­tano ‘testy’ in call.”

Gov. Rick Perry has a warped view of … well, many things, but in this case, it’s man­ners and what makes a per­son “testy.”

He seems to think that, when tak­ing a call from a high-rank­ing Washington of­fi­cial (and for­mer border-state gover­nor), it’s rea­son­able to change the sub­ject with an ac­cu­sa­tion of ef­fron­tery. Yet, ac­cord­ing to Perry, it was her re­sponse, not his, that was testy.

My sug­ges­tion to Perry: Imag­ine your­self mak­ing a call and hav­ing the re­cip­i­ent turn the ta­bles on you. Who, then, is the testy one? Please get off your high horse and stop em­bar­rass­ing Tex­ans.
