Why Governor FoxNews is "Fighting" the NFL....
"Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ."
Following our Tuesday post about Governor Abbott's hypocrisy related to the NFL vs. the University of Texas (where he actually has jurisdiction), we received the following text message:
The privacy act (SB 6) is dead in the House. Abbott knows this. Thus it's a safe issue to generate headlines in national conservative media, which creates a favorable perception heading into his re-election campaign...which is why we've taken to calling him Governor FoxNews in the first place.
Unless Abbott threatens to call a special session over this issue (which he won't), nothing else he says matters.
Prediction: By the time this legislative session is over, the privacy act will be a textbook example of failure theater in the Texas Legislature.
Bottom Line: Smoke, mirrors, and theater....
