Prick Erry


The threat of his becoming President of the United States has passed, but Texans (including the many who didn’t vote for him) remain stuck with him.

    Please clarify the first clause of this one-sentence post.

    • rea

      You really think he still hs a plausible chance at the nomination? Few others do . . .

        When the post first went up, the first clause was grammatically garbled. I blame federal coordination from DHS.

          I was specifically ordered to leave out two words by Peter King and Barrack Hussein Obama.

            Thanks for the repair. I figured as much.

        Ever since the rise of Newt Gingrich, I’ve sort-of convinced myself Perry will end up being the nominee after all. A Republican voter who, while sober, tells a pollster that they support Newt Gingrich for President is someone who will never support Romney. When Cain was the anti-Romney, voters at least had the excuse of not knowing who he was — he was just a sort of generic anti-Obama businessman who happened to be black and thus proving liberals were the real racists. But I find it hard to believe that Republican primary voters don’t know anything about Gingrich.

        Given that Gingrich is clearly too goofy to seriously run for President, and that Romney seemed to have stalled out at his current level of support, who does that leave to be the nominee? Perry seems like the most plausible option.

        He’s the most unlikely candidate in the field except for all the others.

  • Maybe they’ll learn. That was a state that threw Ann Richards over over rumors that she was a lesbian, then put George W. Bush in office. If they haven’t learned yet, then I can only wish them massive inflows of left-leaning people who will change the demographics for a long, long time.

      If, after Richards, you put in Little Boots, and Goodhair, and still don’t flinch, then nothing short of an outright revolution by the people who aren’t moronic white Dominionist Christian assholes will do the trick.

      Viva La Revolution!!!

          In Texas? Too easy . . .

            Hard to even drive down the street without running over 2-3.

    From the bit:

    in addition to: “serious psychological effects… including depression, grief, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, regret, suicidal thoughts and behavior, sexual dysfunction, avoidance of emotional attachment, flashbacks, and substance abuse.”

    For those of you playing along at home, the Texas Uterus police have just accidentally described “becoming a fundie”, though that wasn’t their original target… ;)

    Hmm, continuing to play the Talibornagain role to the hilt suggests that Perry is making himself an attractive Veep pick to reassure those scared of Romney’s holy underwear. (Bachmann would also fill this role, but I’m actually not convinced she would be willing to be Mitt’s spiritual beard.)

    From Posner’s article:

    “Spiritual conversations differ with different clients,” said Cobern. “Some simply want prayer, some have questions about local churches, some are curious about Christianity.”

    Oh, we got both kinds. We got country and western.

    And this from a group that receives taxpayer funding. Yet it’s unconscionable that any insurance company participating in the ACA exchange might offer separately-funded abortion coverage, due to the fungibility of money. May the Lord someday save us from His followers.

    … Hey, maybe Planned Parenthood of Texas could try to convince Perry that they only perform abortions on fetuses which have been falsely convicted of capital crimes. He’d have to support them then.

      Perry is making himself an attractive Veep pick to reassure those scared of Romney’s holy underwear.

      So Perry wants to play LBJ to Willard’s JFK? Somebody better tell Willard to stay the hell out of Dallas.

      I just don’t see Perry as willing to play second fiddle. Not when he’s a one-man-band of stoopid.
