Want to make the world a more dangerous place? Elect Rick Perry

What a fucking moron.

Governor Perry might want to notice that there are many differences between Turkey and Iran. … Turkey still hosts that Incirlik Airbase where the young Rick Perry says he was stationed but where he apparently did not bother to learn anything about his host country. If anything, US-Turkish military relations are on an upswing…Ironically, Perry is doing what he accuses Obama of– making an ally nervous and uncertain.

He meant “making a white and/or Jewish ally nervous and uncertain.”

Can’t wait ’til Perry and Palin run for BMOC and prom queen of the Republic of Texas. The official state network will feature the wisecracking E-trade baby anchoring the daily propaganda report.

The 10 Most Annoying People of 2011: The Ricker

The Ricker's doppelganger, though I'd vote for Nathan Arizona before Perry

Is there anything worse than a cocky dumb ass? How ’bout a cocky dumb ass running for president?

The evidence damning Rick Perry is overwhelmingthis exchange in Iowa yesterday is yet another brick in the wall.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry admitted Thursday that he didn’t know about the Supreme Court case Lawrence v. Texas, a case decided while he was governor which struck down the state’s anti-sodomy law and similar laws in 13 others.

A voter at a meet and greet asked him to defend his criticism of limited government in the case.

“I wish I could tell you I knew every Supreme Court case. I don’t, I’m not even going to try to go through every Supreme Court case, that would be — I’m not a lawyer,” Perry said at the Blue Strawberry Coffee Shop here. “We can sit here and you know play I gotcha questions on what about this Supreme Court case or whatever, but let me tell you, you know and I know that the problem in this country is spending in Washington, D.C., it’s not some Supreme Court case.” …

Asked by Ken Herman, a columnist with the Austin American Statesman, for clarification on whether he knew what the case concerned, Perry responded, “I’m not taking the bar exam…I don’t know what a lot of legal cases involve.”

When told that the Supreme Court case struck down the Texas sodomy law, Perry said, “My position on traditional marriage is clear and I don’t know need a law. I don’t need a federal law case to explain it to me.”

The Texas governor referenced Lawrence v. Texas in his 2010 book Fed Up!, calling it one of the court cases in which “Texans have a different view of the world than do the nine oligarchs in robes.”

He makes W. sound like George Plimpton.

Rick Perry is the dumbest man ever to run for president

A bold statement, but the evidence is overwhelming.

“No greater example of it than this administration sending millions of dollars into the solar industry, and we lost that money,” Perry began. “I want to say it was over $500 million that went to the country Solynda.”

I’m surprised Perry didn’t point out how Solynda is governed by a man in drag, thus supporting his claim that Barack Obama has declared war on traditional values.

Rick Perry determined to win over dumbass bigots

This could get you killed in Uganda, Gubnor Peary

At best, a desperate attempt to regain relevance with the ever-expanding lunatic fringe wing of the GOP:

Rick Perry unleashed a furious response to a White House memo urging the State Department to promote LGBT rights in foreign countries on Tuesday.

“This administration’s war on traditional American values must stop,” he said in a statement. …

“Promoting special rights for gays in foreign countries is not in America’s interests and not worth a dime of taxpayers’ money,” he said. “But there is a troubling trend here beyond the national security nonsense inherent in this silly idea. This is just the most recent example of an administration at war with people of faith in this country. Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong.”

Here’s the nut graph (click here for the complete memo):

“I am deeply concerned by the violence and discrimination targeting LGBT persons around the world,” President Obama said in the memo. “Whether it is passing laws that criminalize LGBT status, beating citizens simply for joining peaceful LGBT pride celebrations, or killing men, women, and children for their perceived sexual orientation.”

Did Perry even read the memo? Good question, since we know he’s ain’t one for books.

If he did, then let the record show the Ricker has tacitly endorsed the incarceration, beating and even murder of gays. Are these the traditional American values supported by Gov. DumbAss Redneck?
