Heh: NPR reporter hopes Texas lawmakers will bow to Matt Damon's influence

In a perfect world, we could assume such a thing. Alas, unlike NPR StateImpact reporter Dave Fehling, we live in reality.

A Matt Damon movie! The Texas legislature will be like putty in the anti-fracking celeb’s hands!

More from Fehling’s article on how Matt Damon’s “Promised Land” might force lawmakers’ hands:

Chances may be better this time around that the Texas legislature might actually strengthen regulation of oil and gas drilling by the Texas Railroad Commission.

Part of the reason is oil and gas drilling is getting far more public scrutiny. There’s even a Matt Damon movie now bringing attention to the hydraulic fracturing technique that’s behind a massive surge in oil and gas drilling.

Yes. How could the Texas legislature resist the intoxicating influence of swoon-worthy Matt Damon?

    We Texans are far too astute to fall for the liberal puss oozing from the likes of Matt Damon or any other Hollyweird moon bat.
