|Texas raised their speed limit to 85 mph in certain areas today.|
Though certain to cause deaths, proponents say it is necessary
in order to get people away from Perry's idiocracy.

"I know it seems risky and I'm certain there will be injuries, maimings, and some horribly gruesome deaths," said State Senator William Dakota, a Democrat from Fort Worth. "However, I and my colleagues felt that it was necessary to get this bill passed so that should our constituents wish to flee the idiocracy of Rick Perry, they can do so as quickly as possible."
Even though the Texas Department of Transportation still has to evaluate which stretches of highway to increase the limit and change the signs before it becomes official, Officer Gerald Brevens of the Texas Highway Patrol tells us that as far as he's concerned, the new limit is effective immediately. "If I could find the same job in a different state, I would," Brevens admitted to us. "People are sick to death of Perry and need to get away. So as long as they don't go 90 or so, I'm good."
