2010: On Twitter, Bill White Created NASA

The Democratic gubernatorial candidate also "kicks it" with Chamillionaire and does trigonometry — "IN SPANISH." If only his smile could bring "a puppy back to life."

It was bound to happen. Some enterprising politico out there has launched a new Twitter account: @billwhitefacts, a satirical take on the Democratic former Houston mayor. 

An example

Bill White was born. Four years later NASA was created. Coincidence? I think not.#billwhitefacts #billwhite

White's opponent in the governor's race, Republican Rick Perry, already has a "facts" account on the microblogging site, though his picture is much better.

Could it be the same anonymous author? Perhaps: 

As a boy, Rick Perry followed a rainbow and met a leprechaun. It wouldn't give him its gold. This is why we no longer have leprechauns.

Please suggest your own "facts" in the comments.
