Another press conference was held in Houston
aired on breakfast news.
It was following a Republican Party fundraiser.
Governor McDowell had eaten a five course meal
followed by Scotch and cigars.
He’d met Miss USA
in her winning sash
and they’d posed for photos.
And McDowell, nicely juiced, stood at a podium
and said it was ‘premature’
to offer Ed executive clemency
and he’s be ‘waiting for the court’s decision’
before reviewing the case again.
Then he climbed into a chauffeur-driven Cadillac.
I’m guessing he slept pretty soundly
in a Hilton penthouse suite.
I’m guessing he didn’t dream of needles but
maybe he did think about
Miss USA and her pretty pink sash.
Ed’s life is in this guy’s hands.
