I think he just hit the self-destruct button. At least I hope he did.

    Well, what exactly were you expecting? He is definitely not as bright as George Bush (no comment here), and is actually despised by a large segment of the population of Texas. The ONLY reason anybody paid any attention to him is because he was not Mormon and not as batsh*t crazy as Bachmann. So now he’s revealed as goofy. In the immortal words of Gomer Pyle, “Surprise, surprise!”

    Mitt is the candidate, no matter how hard the networks and everyone else want this to be a horse race. That he ain’t gettin’ the love from the far right is music to the ears of Democrats. Go get ’em, Willard…..

    The next president of the United States. The downward slide.

  3. JimD says:

    Perry has he right foot in his mouth !!! And when he changes the foot in his mouth (as he often does!!!) to the other one, it is also a RIGHT FOOT, because Perry can’t admit to having a LEFT FOOT, or anything LEFT-ish !!!

  6. msbpodcast says:

    It almost sounds like BadLipReading but its not…

    When I was young (Eisenhower became president the year I was born,) Americans used to call people who talked like that names (and they weren’t presidential caliber or elder statesman.)

    If his opponents play this up, and you know they will, he’s couldn’t get elected presidential dog catcher.

    Please, please, hang on a few more months and waste the rest of your PAC money.

    Oh how I miss Molly Ivins. She once wrote this:

    First, we Texans would like to salute the only governor we’ve got, Rick “Goodhair” Perry, the Ken Doll, for vetoing the bill to outlaw executing the mentally retarded.

    We are Texas Proud.

    Such a brilliant decision—not only is Texas now globally recognized for barbaric cruelty, but a strong majority of Texans themselves (73 percent) would prefer not to off the retarded.

    Gov. Goodhair’s decision—in the face of popular opinion, the Supreme Court and George W. Bush’s recent conversion on this subject—is a testament to his strength of character.

    Or something.

    His Perryness announced, anent the veto, that Texas does not execute the retarded. I beg your pardon, Governor. Johnny Paul Penry, now on Death Row for a heart-breaking murder and the subject of two Supreme Court decisions, has an IQ between 51 and 60, believes in Santa Claus and likes coloring books.

    And that’s not counting the other six we know about for sure since 1990.

  9. The0ne says:

    These candidates provides me me loads of laughter every single day. Thank you Republicans!

    • Perry is a lifelong Democrat who now poses as a Republican. Not sure what he’s up to.

      • Dallas says:

        Yeah sure. Whenever a republican smells too bad he/she is pegged as something else.

        Guess what, he’s a crazy aunt Republican. You’re suppose to just keep’m in the cage attic but it’s family.

        • Kernel Panic says:

          Lifelong Dem… get over it. Do your homework, or STFU.

          • Dallas says:

            Time to stop blaming his lunacy on his expired voter registration card. He’s been a puke for at least 3 years, oops make that more than 2 decades.

            Don’t treat your crazy aunts like that.

  10. #09- bobbo, OCCUPY DVORAK: what if "we-all" number our own posts and post seriatim ourselves? says:

    The entire far right wing/TeaParty and their wanna be’s and followers are nuts. All it would take to reveal any of them is some good solid background research and some good hard hitting “stress” interviews like: “What magazines do you read?”

    Yep—a bunch of frigging nuts attracting 40% of the electorate.

    In AMERICA!!!!!!!!!

    Kinda like Hitler was so attractive in the post above and only 80 years ago in another country. They are all fascists waiting to lead the 99% astray.

    At least they are honest though. What to make of those “moderate” republicans who will court their votes by pushing their ideology for them to the other moderates and fence sitters?

    What of THOSE god denying good religious people????

    Apples and Oranges? Cesspools and Republican Politics.

    Yea, verily.


    PS: Like any other strong idealogue like Hitler===Ron Paul is nuts too all to the same ultimate evil==raising a philosophy above the pragmatic desires/needs/wants/demands of the great majority.

  11. shooff says:

    You have to be a drunk or a mormon to be in politics.

    A Drunk because you need to sedate yourself to put up with all the BS.


    A Mormon, because once you are in office you know that you are restricting alcohol to the tenth degree. The LDS just re-restricted alcohol in Utah. They hated Huntsman’s liberal rules. Now all drinks must be mixed in a hiding spot.

    Romney means prohibition of many everyday things like coffee, sex, plan on everything (except golf courses) closed on Sunday.

    The Jazz have once played a game in Utah on a Sunday. Think Islam is restrictive?

    Read my lips:


  13. James B says:

    I have not ready any comments.
    That video makes Perry seems like a good, average, nice guy. I like him in that video.
    He reminds me of a good guy around the corner here that is decent, trying to work for his family, has had some setbacks, but keeps trying and smiling and going on.

  14. NewFormatSux says:

    Obama camp is afraid of Rick Perry so they are still attacking him though he is 6th in the Republican polls.

    They love the fellow fascist Romney. And bobbo, fascism is primarily of the left. Obama is a prime example, enticing corporations to do the wishes of the state.

    • Dr Peppermint says:

      Um dude, that was gayest thing I’ve ever seen.

    • Dallas says:

      Obama camp long left caring about Perry. The target is Mitt Romney and they knew it way before people opened up the Cain closet for skeletons. The critically important white supremest and evangelicals would never vote for a black guy, much less a second one. What would the neighbors think?

      This is clearly a Romney vs Obama election and even Romney is starting to campaign for the general population vote.

  15. Lou says:

    Good luck Texas.

  16. So what says:

    John Stewart said it best last night. The best case scenario he’s hammered out of his mind. The worst case is that this is him sober and everything else was when he was hammered,

  17. Just another gibbering hoon trying to win the presidential auction next year. Beltway consensus runs the country not the POTUS, anyway, so it doesn’t even matter.

  18. YEE-HAW! says:

    this reminds me of Howard Dean’s “I Have A Scream”

  19. NewFormatSux says:

    The problem isn’t Perry drunk, it’s Obama sober.
    Between handing out billions in funds to political allies, loans to campaign contributors before they go bankrupt, and passing numerous regulations that shut down jobs, drunken Perry would be a great benefit.

  20. #21- bobbo, OCCUPY DVORAK: what if "we-all" number our own posts and post seriatim ourselves? says:

    No Number but Newformatsucks–you say: “And bobbo, fascism is primarily of the left.” /// What do you premise the statement on, and even if it is true, how does that distinction apply to my comment or the realization that both Pukes and Dumbos are today in the pocket of Big Business?

    Please elucidate.

  21. chris says:

    He has the appearance and behavioral ticks of Bush II, but the voice of Bush I.

  22. Dallas says:

    He has better chances as an evangelical. Their sheep like corny, story telling from inebriated guys in a podium

  23. Milo says:

    However, this guy is all the R’s have left. A Mormon will never get elected and a black guy will only get elected by the D’s.

  24. Dallas says:

    Perry was last month’s GOP entertainment. November is about Cain.

  25. Telzit Laikitiz says:

    Politicians are clowns. Rich, corrupt, malignant clowns. So what exactly is it about this guy — or any of the others — that you find particularly surprising?

  26. Rick says:

    Obama is right. All he needs to do is wait long enough and all the GOP candidates will get voted off the island.
