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…

The 10 Most Annoying People of 2011: The Ricker

Is there anything worse than a cocky dumb ass? How ’bout a cocky dumb ass running for president? The evidence damning Rick Perry is overwhelming — this 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…

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

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…

Is Rick Perry a racist?

So now Rick Perry is to blame for the “unconscionable, racially stereotypical attack” launched against Herman Cain? Rush Limbaugh’s words, not mine. Apparently the Texas governor can’t handle an “independent, self-reliant conservative black.” Related articles Naturally Rick Perry Is Now Accusing The Romney Campaign Of Leaking The Cain Harassment Story (businessinsider.com)

Further confirmation the next GOP nominee is a moron

(Whoops — originally published in October) If Rick Perry is going to cast doubt about the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate then I think it’s fair to question his story about the racist rock on his family’s hunting camp. Although there’s irrefutable evidence Obama was born in the U.S. no such proof exists that Perry’s family was all that troubled by N—–head. You don’t believe what’s been released? I don’t know. I had dinner with Donald Trump the other night. And? That came up. And he said? He doesn’t think it’s real. And you said? I don’t have any idea. It…

Rick Perry’s life of luxury, at taxpayer’s expense

Funny, the Tea Party doesn’t seem very upset about this: Taxpayer costs associated with Perry’s rental home in western Travis County have sometimes totaled $10,000 per month. From an Associated Press report in 2010: “It costs more than $10,000 a month in rent, utilities and upkeep to house Perry in a five-bedroom, seven-bath mansion that has pecan-wood floors, a gourmet kitchen and three dining rooms. Perry has also spent $130,000 in campaign donations to throw parties, buy food and drink, and pay for cable TV and a host of other services since he moved in, the records show.” Perry and his wife…

A salute to Rick Perry

Sad that I feel compelled to salute a candidate for speaking out against letting the uninsured die, but that’s today’s Tea Party-dominated GOP for you. Texas Governor Rick Perry says he was “taken aback” by an incident that occurred at Monday night’s Republican presidential debate after U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) was asked if a man who is sick should be left to die because he is uninsured, according to NBC News. In addressing the situation that unfolded Perry reportedly said, “We’re the party of life.” Still think the tea party isn’t extremist? Related articles Rick Perry Taken Aback By Audience Cheering…

‘Perry treats questions like interruptions’

If you think like a GOP primary voter, then Gov. Male-in was last night’s winner, writes Jonathan Chait: Perry treats questions as interruptions. What scientists do you trust on climate change? I don’t want to risk the economy. Are you taking a radical position on social security?  We can have reasons or we can have results. His total liberation from the constraints of reason give Perry a chance to represent the Republican id in a way Romney simply cannot match.
