Texas Gov. Rick Perry is demanding an apology from a California newspaper that published a cartoon that seemed to link his push for less regulations to the recent fertilizer plant explosion that killed 14.
"The Sacramento Bee published a disgusting 'cartoon' mocking the deadly explosion in West. While I will always welcome healthy policy debate, I won't stand for someone mocking the tragic deaths of my fellow Texans and our fellow Americans. I have written the editor and asked that they apologize to the citizens of West," Perry wrote on his official Facebook page.

Good thing Texas isn’t Muslim
Karma's a B, and CA being in a seismic zone, watch it!!!!!!
I guess if you consider California part of America, which I don’t. And many Californians apparently don’t, either.
Disgraceful and disgusting. That he stands by his work is all the more disgusting.
Not considering it part of America doesn’t make it not part of America.
But when it gave us Reagan it was part of America. When it gives us looneytoon-ville it still is.
There are many East Coast/West Coast Leftists who decided some time ago that Texas isn’t part of America.
Guess what? It IS.
Governor Perry has not chosen to pretend and ignore CA. He goes there quite often on highly publicized tours to recruit CA businesses to TX and successfully so.
Now the MEDIA there is another thing. This is a ghastly thing for ANYBODY to do. You can either pretend it wasn’t done, or you can confront it. I think he did right to confront it.
My only nitpik - don’t bother asking for an apology. Just roast their sorry hides...
the explosion in west texas? you mean the one where the first responders were putting out a fire while being filmed by a bystander.. when someone jumped out a window just before the plant exploded
during the same week of the boston bombing and alabama bombing
sure seems like 0bama’s agenda is working as intended... as defined by his mentor, BAyers
Now that was funny.
Which of those dead Americans do you consider Californians, and therefor not really Americans?
Texas should close its borders to all Californians. We don’t want them here, Governor. They will definitely not improve Texas.
No, just to Cali liberals. You should want the Cali biz people fleeing the state....
Hey - i live in Cali! My son is going to A&M, and he is more conservative than lots of the kids there.
It’s the Sacramento Bee, mouth piece for the Democrats. This disgusting cartoon is just a response to Perry asking California businesses to relocate to Texas. As if California’s over regulation prevents work place incidents.
Josef Goebbels would be proud of them ... they have learned their lessons well.
Classless and infantile cheap shot.
what about the PG&E pipeline explosion? Death toll 8, September 2010?
by golly, that happened in California (San Bruno)
Regulations?...i am sure California has loads of them.
