Texas governor Rick Perry has defended his handling of a death penalty case that may have led to the execution of an innocent man -- and launched an extraordinary attack on the dead man himself.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Perry yesterday called Cameron Todd Wilingham a "monster," a "bad man," and "a guy who murdered his three children, who tried to beat his wife into an abortion so that she wouldn't have those kids."
Hey, Rick? If he was bad as all that, if the evidence was airtight and he really did this and deserved to die, why are you so fucking intent on making sure there's no investigation?
Something tells me it's not the dead man who's the monster.
