What to do about all those presidents from Texas

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me she had seen Gov. Rick Perry speaking on television, and that his accent reminded her of that of George W. Bush, and that she couldn’t stand the thought of someone like Bush being president again. She will like the comment by Gerald M. from Dallas about Perry, which concludes with this:

Finally—and I make this suggestion as a native-born Texan and in almost total seriousness—it’s time to do something about the plague of presidents from Texas. Considering the immense damage done to America by LBJ, George Herbert Walker Bush, and George W. Bush, I propose a constitutional amendment banning anyone from the Lone Star State from the office of the Presidency or Vice Presidency for the next 100 years.

After a century of no Texas presidents, we may have recovered enough to risk letting one in the Oval Office again.
