Observations 7.18

When I first saw it this video from Wednesday night's The Daily Show it made my morning. I've watched it a few times since than and if anything I like it even more now. There is a back story to this, which you can get by watching the full segment here, but I think it's perfect stand alone for so many reasons. Especially given Rick Perry signed Texas' draconian anti-abortion bill into law today.

"Don't mess with Texas? No, don't f*ck with New York.
I'm Lewis Black and I approve this message."

If you want to have some real fun Google Texas' reaction to the video. The San Antonio Express had this gem; "People come here (Texas) from all over the world because we've got all of the nation's jobs, for the ability to park your car anywhere you want, but most of all, for the fact that it's not the rat-infested, overbuilt, overpriced, concrete craphole that is New York City."

update - There is also a twitter hashtag, #NYmiddlefingerTX, and a website,, for your entertainment. The website is paid for by "New Yorkers who think Texas blows."
