Perry booed at mention of Dewhurst during GOP rally

AUSTIN -- With a fanfare reminiscent of his presidential campaign, Governor Rick Perry took the stage at the Texas GOP convention in Fort Worth to rally supporters.

Addressing a Republican home crowd in the nation's most populous red state, the governor opened things up with a jab at one of the state's few islands of blue.

"I bring you greetings from the Capital City, where the Democrat-controlled city motto is 'Keep Austin Weird,'" Perry said. "This week in Fort Worth, Texas, we have a different motto. It's 'Keep Texas Republican!'"

After a speech which focused mostly on touting the state's economic record and promoting his budget compact calling for more budget cuts, what most were talking about was a brief moment of awkwardness.
