SA’s Prick of the Week – Rick Perry

August 20, 2011

Everything the state of Texas produces is “big” – morons notwithstanding. Apparently the biggest moron to ever come out of Texas, George W. Bush, was not an anomaly. Yep, the Lone Star State has produced another one. 3-term republican governor, Rick Perry, threw his stetson into the republican primary ring last Saturday in South Carolina while his opponents were drawing straws in Iowa. Like a rodeo bull out of the chute, he didn’t waste any time showing us what a big moron he is.

In his first week as a presidential candidate, this tea-party favorite said that if Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke puts more money in the U.S. system, you could “chalk it up as a treasonous act” and that he would be treated “pretty ugly” back home. In a meeting with business leaders from a region known for its strong environmental policies, he called manmade global warming a “scientific theory that has not been proven,” adding that he couldn’t see spending much money to address the issue. Responding to a child asking whether he believes in evolution, this knuckle-dragging Neanderthal said that evolution was a theory “that’s out there. It’s got some gaps in it. In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution in our public schools because I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.”

In the past, he called the BP oil spill an act of God, not the result of corporate errors. He said he wants to abolish the Department of Education. He called Social Security a “Ponzi scheme.” He has also promoted the idea of Texas seceding from the union (not necessarily a bad idea). His colorful, cowboy rhetoric may play well in intellectually-challenged tea-party strongholds, but they certainly wouldn’t be considered “presidential” by any thinking voter. There’s an old saying: “It’s better to keep one’s mouth shut and be thought an idiot than to speak and remove all doubt.” Bush and Perry must have never heard that pearl of wisdom.

You could take all the brains of the other republican presidential hopefuls and fit them on the head of a pin and still have plenty of room for Rick Perry’s. Any one of them deserve the Golden Prick Award, but Perry’s idiotic audacity and the republican electorate’s excitement over his entry into the race put him at the head of the heard. Michele Bachmann was right behind him with her nose in his butt. So, congratulations, Prick… you are SA’s Rick of the Week. God help us.

    Would he still be a US citizen and eligible to be President if Texas secedes?

      No. That’s one reason I said that secession was not necessarily a bad idea. If Texas had seceeded in the 1990’s, we could have been spared the tragic Bush years and the resulting global recession. But republican’ts are missing their cerebral cortex and any semblance of a long-term memory, so they are falling all over themselves to support dubya’s clone. If we could require an I.Q. test for politicians and voters, a lot of our problems would be solved. Of course, Washington might become a ghost town… but hey.
