Republican tactics 101: If at first you don’t succeed, change the rules and try again 

In Texas, Rove's tactics have failed—so far:

Tuesday was the 30th day of the 30-day session. Republican Gov. Rick Perry has indicated he would call yet another special session to try to get approval for new congressional boundaries. But he has not said when it would start. ...

Republican Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst sent a warning to the Democrats.

"Let me pass on a very clear message to our 11 colleagues out in Albuquerque. The mood in the Senate is changing. We're tired. We're tired of sitting here and waiting," Dewhurst said. "It is in our 11 colleagues' best interest to come back sooner rather than later."

I always enjoy it when Republicans try to help Democrats understand what their own best interests are. It's cute, and doesn't really do anyone any harm.

Then again, Rove's tactics are metastatizing to Pennsylvania and in Nevada that they've already tried in Texas and California (via Atrios).
