“It takes balls to execute an innocent man.”

From Politico:
Veterans of Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison’s unsuccessful 2010 primary challenge to [Gov. Rick] Perry recalled being stunned at the way attacks bounced off the governor in a strongly conservative state gripped by tea party fever. Multiple former Hutchison advisers recalled asking a focus group about the charge that Perry may have presided over the execution of an innocent man — Cameron Todd Willingham — and got this response from a primary voter: “It takes balls to execute an innocent man.”
 If you aren't familiar with the mind-blowing details of the Willingham case, best learn yourself here.
