It appears Josh Brolin playing George W. Bush look-a-like and D-student governor of Texas (the worst phrase in American history), Rick Perry, is inching closer to officially destroying an already destroyed country. Sadly, you may recall a certain other frat boy moron and Texas governor getting the word from God to run for President.
Even sadder, you probably cannot help but recall the unprecedented and unparalleled damage that frat-boy moron caused to the US economy, the US military structure, the US’s moral standing on the world stage, and the global environment. Well, it looks like God now has another idiot frat-boy from Texas to humiliate Him and turn Him into an atheist.
According to USA Today, Texas Gov. Rick Perry will visit at least two early primary states —South Carolina and New Hampshire— on Saturday at the same time most of his would-be opponents are competing in an important test vote in Iowa.
The Texas firebrand governor has been the focus of presidential speculation for weeks now amid a field of severely weak (and mentally unstable) Republican candidates. With his quasi-theocratic prayer rally loaded with rabid, right-wing preachers, Perry has also been the focus of much dismay and frustration among believers of a secular state, in which one doesn’t favor one religion (the boring, white and angry kind). By flagrantly violating the Establishment Clause of the Constitution and currying favor with hateful, miserably uninformed Christian revisionists, Rick Perry has carried out all the necessary prerequisites for a Republican Presidential run. Throw in a few sanctimonious sex scandals and divorces and the Republican Party can nominate him right now.
According to Politico:
Rick Perry intends to use a speech in South Carolina on Saturday to make clear that he’s running for president, POLITICO has learned.
According to two sources familiar with the plan, the Texas governor will remove any doubt about his White House intentions during his appearance at a RedState conference in Charleston.
It’s uncertain whether Saturday will mark a formal declaration, but Perry’s decision to disclose his intentions the same day as the Ames straw poll — and then hours later make his first trip to New Hampshire — will send shock waves through the race and upend whatever results come out of the straw poll.
One might wonder why Politico would even run such an article with certainty when it’s unclear whether Saturday will mark the “formal declaration.” But let’s take a cursory look at some of the horrendous facts regarding the state in which Governor Perry has presided as Governor.
For example, Texas has the highest rate of minimum-wage jobs in the country. And even though the hopelessly deluded D-student governor has perpetually claimed a solid record on job creation, those pesky facts just fail to agree.
“While the national unemployment rate is 9.1 percent and the Texas unemployment rate is 8 percent, some 23 states, including New York, have lower unemployment rates.” In addition, “jobs grew at about the same rate during Democrat Ann Richards’ four years as governor” as they have under Perry, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
Rick Perry must have been so super excited about using God and religion to hoodwink uninformed voters into forgoing their economic self-interests that he failed to mention Texas as being the state with the highest rate of children without health insurance.
Governor Perry certainly has a massive war chest and enough Texas good ol’ boy money to secure a lengthy and protracted battle for late-nite fodder supremacy. Perhaps rational and caring Americans can hold a huge rally devoted to praying that Perry doesn’t run?
