One day after Rep. Alcee L. Hastings messed with Texas calling it a “crazy” state, Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, offered a “defense of the state of Texas” on the House floor. “There’s been a lot of talk about Texas lately — not just last night, but lately,” Sessions said. “I stand in defense of Texas, although Texas — I don’t think — really needs much defense.”
