Even after is is established that Rick Perry is a complete imbecile, he will go on using the same incorrect information and his followers will devour it, in that classic willfully ignorant GOP/Tea Klan kind of way.

Rick Perry was a registered Democrat until 1989. There’s more sincerity in Katie Price’s left toenail than Rick Perry’ll show in a year and I’ll believe he’s actually an imbecile the day I see a Texan actually ride a horse to school. He is an expert opportunist and politician, and Dems underestimate him at their own peril.

“You wouldn’t have that many people uninsured in Texas if you didn’t have the federal government.” - Rick Perry, blaming the federal government for Texas’s last place finish in insuring state citizens.


dear sweet mother of god i’m so sorry texas

I don’t know how I’m going to make it through 2012 if he wins the candidacy.
I might just, like, dissolve into a fit of apoplexy or something. 
He is just not sufferable.

Liberals Are Cool: Perry Almost Promises To Pollute

“I’ll tell you one thing: The EPA officials we have an opportunity to put in place, they’re going to be pro-business, and there’s not going to be any apologies to anybody about it,” he said. “Those agencies won’t know what hit ‘em.”

- Rick Perry, speaking at a campaign stop in his home state…

While it’s true that Perry is undefeated in electoral contests, his mythic reputation isn’t entirely earned. Much of his hype is just that. To a large extent, Perry’s unusual success as a politician has less to do with his personal prowess as a campaigner than with his skill at navigating the peculiarities of Texan state-wide elections… Judging from the low turnouts in the Republican primary elections—the only votes in Texas that really count for anything—even the ruling party in Texas is extremely dispirited. In the 2002, 2006, and 2010 votes in which Perry was elected governor, only around 4 percent of the voting-age population turned out for the Republican primary. As a result, Perry only needed to convince roughly 2 percent of the voting-age population of the Republican-heavy state that he would be a suitable governor before cruising through the general elections against a pro forma Democratic candidate, or, in 2006, a slate of nominal candidates. In Texas, the “people who vote in primary elections are unusual people,” Tucker stressed to me. “They are more extreme, further to the right.” In other words, Perry was able to repeatedly vault himself to the governorship largely not because he was a persuasive campaigner, but because he catered to the extreme views of a minority of die-hard conservatives.
The man who got a ‘D’ in economics at Texas A&M seems to be threatening the man who graduated from Harvard summa cum laude in economics and completed his doctoral work in economics at MIT.
Perry keeps a daily “political schedule” that he argues is separate from the “official schedule” that must be disclosed under Texas open records laws. His official schedule for the first six months of 2010 showed an average of 7 hours of work per week; he has admitted that he simply doesn’t record much of his official business. His office destroys its emails weekly.
Things that make me happy (in a sick way)

now that Rick Perry’s on the national stage, EVERYONE gets to be infuriated by his bullshit! Wheeeee!

The theory here seems to be that up until now God has been angry at Texas, or perhaps indifferent to Texas’ plight, water-wise. So if enough Texans pray over the next three days, it’ll basically be like everyone waving at once, saying, “Hey, God! A little help here!” Whereupon, God will say, “Oh — Texas! I forgot you guys were there!” And then he’ll say, “Well, I had this plan that stretches from here until the end of time, and the drought played a small but significant part in that plan…but heck, since you all prayed so nicely, here’s some rain.”


It’s good to know that this is the kind of thing that occupies Rick Perry’s time.
