Tex. Gov. to EU: Drop Dead

Gotta love this response from the Governor of Texas to a demand by the EU that Texas place a moratorium on capital punishment:

230 years ago, our forefathers fought a war to throw off the yoke of a European monarch and gain the freedom of self-determination. Texans long ago decided that the death penalty is a just and appropriate punishment for the most horrible crimes committed against our citizens. While we respect our friends in Europe, welcome their investment in our state and appreciate their interest in our laws, Texans are doing just fine governing Texas.
