It's snotty and Ferguson makes the "case" w/o all the facts -- just repeats talking points made by the Left -- for example the economy. Ferguson makes it sound like Texas is a trash heap with dirty air and ignorant, dirt-poor citizens.
Suggested reading for Andrew Ferguson and others (that IS balanced):
It doesn’t seem inflammatory to me. There’s nothing wrong with knowing what the opposition will be arguing about. This article would certainly not deter me for voting or supporting Perry.
