Rick Perry Officially Wants The Republican Presidential Nomination

I’m a little slow posting this but Perry took his time throwing his big, fat, stupid cowboy hat in the ring so I’m not going to sweat my dawdling.

Texas Governor Rick Perry has announced his intention to run for the Republican presidential nomination.

So. Americans wouldn’t really elect another radical, tax-cuttin’ Texan would they? One worse than George Dubya? A religious extremist who literally leads his drought-stricken¬†state in prayer because he doesn’t comprehend policy (or weather)? Couldn’t happen, right?

Yeah. Yeah, it could.

Michele Bachman, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, maybe Sarah Palin… what a qualified bunch. The United States should definitely vote one of ’em in to replace that socialist Kenyan they’ve got now.¬†They totally should. I’m sure something this wouldn’t ever happen:

Seriously, I’m 83 per cent sure.

  1. As much as I’d hate to see Obama lose in 2012, a Perry presidency WOULD seriously set-up a VERY ineteresing showdown between church and state politics.

    For all of old-money George W’s Christian pandering, the only thing he was REALLY about was serving as an oil and lumber and defense industry puppet, making them as wealthy as possible.

    Perry doesn’t really seem to have those connections. His thing REALLY is forcing God down your throat.

    Should be interesting. I’m thinking he’ll usher in a whole new era of social change in revolt; tho, with the old hippies pushing 70, the younger poseurs in their 50s jealously guarding their pensions, and those in their 30s and 20 struggling to establish, I don’t exactly know who will revolt effectively against state-enforced Christianity.

    I’m loving the pluck of Generation Z.

  2. How long will it be before one of the Rethug candidates is outed as Sascha Baron Cohen?

  3. Maybe the great strength of the ’11 Riots is the fact that they’re unfocused and random–when the powerful know who its enemy is and why, it’s easier for them to discredit. When it’s just random anarchy triggered by an injustice, or hockey game, it’s impossible to control.

    I wonder how unemployed underclass American youth would respond to theocratic tax-cutting and further re-writes of American social justice history by a hard-right 60-something cloud-being worshipper in 2015? Wow, wow, it could get ugly.

  4. I mean, Riots=Bad; Looting=Despicable; BUT, to pretend these riots aren’t actually driven by a sense of political and financial hopelessness, denial, and gloom is absurd.

    After globalization, the wanton greed and criminality of our financial “leaders”, $20 million annual CEO bonuses, and sell-out of our commonwealth by lobbyist politicians, of course the first generation to come of age solely in a corrupt and spiritually dead age is going to revolt.

    *The drugs don’t work anymore–they’ve grown up immune* Social scientists have been predicting this era for decades.
