The heroic battle to nullify TSA Tyranny in Texas has likely come to an end. Unsurprisingly, it was ultimately killed by conservative Republicans — the kind who talk about how much they hate big government, but who actually favor the centralized state when put to the slightest test — including Governor Rick Perry.

(In fairness, I should add that some Republicans, particularly Rep. David Simpson and Sen. Dan Patrick, should be commended for their efforts to get the bill passed, as should the Democrats who supported the measure.)
