    LMAO!

    So what was your first clue that Rick Perry was a piece of “work”? The fact he’s a Moron er, MorMon or that he’s a politician?

    • msbpodcast says:

      He wants the job, therefore he should disqualified from it.

      He’s another one with a coprophagic grin, shuckin’ an jivin’ after all of them dollars, kissing babies and rich-men’s asses, trying to worm his way up the ladder and do his papa proud. (Daddy had no respect for the poor pissant.)

      He wants a couple of million of ’em so he can start his own dynasty, (don’t worry, it’ll last as Nixon’s did.)

      Like the other 1%ers, he’ll never amount to much. It’ll all be dissipated in a generation or two.

      He’s just supposed to keep us entertained while facilitating the money transfer from those without enough to protect themselves to those with too much already. He’s a overly well-paid, glorified errand boy.

      Not like the Carnegies, the Mellons, Astors, the Rockefellers et alia or the Johnny-cum-Latelies Buffet, Jobs and Gates.

      These 12,400 fuckers are <brich on their assets.

    Thanks, McCullough. Now I remember why I rarely watch Funny or Die. It ain’t funny. It should die.

    Anon: Last time I checked, Perry was not a Mormon. Moron? Sure.

    Another reason to hate the new format: It claims three responses when there were only two.

    • McCullough says:

      I have always been curious as to why something is funny to some, falls flat with another. I have an extremely wide tolerance for funny. Comedy and music help me cope with the day to day absurdities.

      As for the format, I also have issues. I have voiced my opinion to management….but unfortunately, it’s a dictatorship.

      • Animby says:

        It would be a little soothing if mgmt would at least acknowledge our complaints and explain why it won’t/can’t fix the problems. Ignoring the problem and hoping it will go away is not the answer. A couple of years ago, IIRC, Dvorak had a big thing about getting input just to change the logo. But change the whole design? Surprise and shut up. I still believe the problem is nepotism.

    That was pretty gross indeed!

    Rather than talk about the video — since I don’t care about Rick Perry — I’d like to point out something eerie.

    The Obama team doesn’t seem too worried about the Republican candidates. And yet in 2008, Hillary wasn’t worried about the other Democratic candidates.

    And the Republican candidate crop does seem to “suck”.

    Obama should be worried. No sitting president who thought the next election was a “coronation” has ever won. This attitude smells like HW Bush 1992.

    • Dallas says:

      Why do you say he’s not worried? Because he’s working and not taking their bait?

      Frankly the Obama strategy of letting these goons tear each other down or let them suck up to fringe groups with mouth wide open is brilliant.

      Furthermore, any of these Teapublican clowns would LOVE to have Obama respond to them which would give any of them credibility as a viable opponent.

      • Hmeyers says:

        I don’t think it is presidential to even acknowledge a candidate from the other party until one is chosen. So I’m not saying that.

        I wouldn’t claim at this point that any of “high media coverage” Republicans is even a serious contender.

        [Romney … eh … maybe. But Republicans are too biased against his “funny” religion or the distinction between states rights versus federal rights to see his health care deal in Mass. was what the founders intended.]

        At the same, I suspect one of the “no names” might emerge as a serious candidate.

        As I recall, in 2004 Time magazine anointed what’s his face from Vermont as “the guy” who would get the Democratic nomination and that Clinton back in 1992 was dismissed and “fatally wounded” at one point during the nomination process.

        As more or less an uninterested bystander (I think both parties rather much suck and don’t really do what they say once they actually get office), I am more interested in how things unfold because at neither “major” party has failed to produce a somewhat credible nominee by the time things wrap up in the last 40 years or so.

        Or maybe history will not repeat itself this time?

  5. orchidcup says:

    Funny thing is, Perry was a staunch Democrat before he became a staunch Republican.

    From the Book of Knowledge:

    In 1987, Perry voted for a $5.7 billion tax increase proposed by Republican governor Bill Clements. Perry supported Al Gore in the 1988 Democratic presidential primaries and worked in an unspecified capacity for Gore’s campaign in Texas. In 1989, Perry announced that he was switching parties, becoming a Republican.

    • Dallas says:

      First, that was a quarter century ago and meaningless. So 25 yrs ago I dated girls. Big desk.

      You slso need to find a better Teapublican shill site with better red herrings.

  6. orchidcup says:

    Now that children have been forced to celebrate Christmas underground, we won’t be seeing any creepy Santa Claus guys in the mall getting their photo taken with little kids in their lap.

    I heard of a local family that was forced to celebrate Christmas with their kids in the basement of a church with most of the lights dimmed so they would not be detected by the Christmas patrol.

  7. Dr Spearmint Fur says:

    Rick Perry is a real man. He’d never touch another man’s canoe paddle. But he’d certainly hump one of Santa’s reindeer in the blink of an eye.

    • ± says:

      Dr Spearmint Fur, I envy your cool avatar. Mine is sort of nondescript.

      • Dr Spearmint Fur says:

        I kind of like the rocket powered penis avatar. In Spanish they call it “El Penetrado”!

  8. Germany Boy says:

    So the original Rick Perry ad was a huge distraction….but I gotta say I like this parody.

    Rick Perry hates gays? Big shocker.

  9. TThor says:

    No fan of Perry, far from it – but this piece is plain stupid. Not fun at all. But guess this is what US politics has come to. The two liner gag, and headline answers to complicated maters that require reasoning. This symbolizes the dumbing down of the US, where everything shall be governed by catch phrases.
    What a great future we all share…………….. NOT!

  10. jescott418 says:

    Its great to have fun with these candidates.

    I just posted on the Michele Bachman thread the next page down. How is anyone supposed to know that? WHY is there no “latest posts” in the margin? WHY don’t you bump the better responded to issues?

    WHY doesn’t JCD even care about his own blog???? Stupid to disable your own blog.

    Anyway–I haven’t found a “bad lipsynch” parody yet that I like. The monologue should flow as one consistent piece==not helter skelter as they do. A lot of the other paraodies are pretty good.

    I had an extremely negative reaction to the original ad==rewarding to see it gain notoriety as the “worst video clip” on YouTube. Well worse than “Fridays” the previous loser that I thought was “ok” for the 30 seconds I watched it.

    Newt Gringritch===ha, ha. Was on his way to a book promotion and almost got elected Presnedent. Such is the stoopidity of the American Public.

    How do I get off this planet?

  12. GregAllen says:

    That video went too far. A little more subtlety would have been funnier.

  13. The0ne says:

    good video. As the kids might say +1

  14. orchidcup says:

    Rick Perry’s handlers managed to hit all of the voter’s hot buttons:

    “Gays serving openly in the military” is a phrase designed to piss off the homophobic assholes.

    “Children can’t celebrate Christmas in public” is a hot poker in the eye of religious fundamentalists that ignore the Constitution and insist that we are governed as a theocracy.

    Now he has a new political ad that positions him as a Washington outsider that is “not politically correct.”

    No shit, Sherlock Holmes.

    Read the Constitution in your spare time, Tricky Ricky.

  15. NewFormatSux says:

    That’s closer to the truth than people care to admit. The type of sex-ed curriculum being advocated by gay groups is not in line with what people want, and they would start in kindergarten. Even Obama has a NAMBLA guy in his administration.

    For all the criticism of the grad student at Penn State who didn’t say anything, I think people ignore just how much trouble he could ave been in with these same gay groups if the facts were just a bit different. He would have been expelled as a bigot, cheered on by some of the same people who are criticizing him now.

  16. Glenn E. says:

    Do we really want a president whose last name is the same as Luke Perry, and Katy Perry? I think we get far enough of the Perrys, without having to have a president as one too. Next thing ya know, yuppie parents will be naming their babies Perry. We’ll never be rid of it. Like anthrax or cholera, it’ll survive and keep coming back. Please, don’t make the mistake of perpetuating the plague of Perrys.

  17. Dr Spearmint Fur says:

    Rick Perry isn’t the only guy to have slip of the tongue on camera.

  18. #30- bobbo, OCCUPY DVORAK: what if "we-all" number our own posts and post seriatim ourselves? says:

    Tricky Ricky the Texas BS’r’s “Oops Moment” was not a slip of the tongue. It was a classic demonstration of early onset Alzheimer’s Disease where you can’t remember short lists of things.

    Sad when that happens to a human being. Like Reagan while still in office with Nancy feeding him lines.

    All part of the worst aspects of our humanity—decaying away. I don’t remember phone numbers like I used to. Damn!
