Rick Perry

Making fun of Rick Perry for saying stupid things is like shooting fish in a barrel at this point, but until he stops pretending he has anything constructive to contribute to the American public, I'll keep doing it. Which brings us to this sound bite from a speech he made today in New Hampshire:

"Those of you that will be 21 by November the 12th, I ask for your support and your vote. Those of you who won't be, work hard."

Knowing neither the age when you can start reeling in potential voters (eighteen) or the date of the 2012 general election (November 6th) seems like pretty important information, but maybe things will still turn out just fine for Rick. For the moment it's unclear, as he declined to take comments after the speech, during which he also received the official endorsement of sketchy, oft-sued Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. 

Maybe this new political alliance will change the tides and lead Perry to a sweeping, super-manly 2012 victory, or maybe we just have to wait it out a little longer until he finally gives up and goes back to that hunting camp of his. Only time will tell.

Oh Mamma! Another Jesusy ex-alcoholic Bozo governor from Texas? Why does this feel like a bad dream?

Only liberals are smart enough to run for office! Why don't we just suspend elections until the economy improves?

Why exactly is intelligence not a required trait to be president?? You act like expecting smarts from a presidential candidate is SO snobbish.

Nov 30 11 - 3:33am

No kidding. "Darn you liberals and your pesky triple-digit IQ's !"

Nov 30 11 - 3:36am

The teabaggers think I'm a bad thing.

I just need a few trillion dollars more and I'll have this centralized economy booming. You'll have to excuse me now, I need to go explain to the car companies why they're not making money on SUVs - those idiots are convinced they're a high profit item!

The Fed

Shhhh! I'm giving away 13 trillion dollars! Obama and Congress are going to find out if you don't shut up.

Dec 01 11 - 10:42am

Are you kidding? Obama and the Wall Street bankers are behind the scheme!

Dec 01 11 - 1:05pm
No they

are not. The fed gave away 13 trillion without approval from our elected government and has been trying to hide it ever since.

Sounds like he just misspoke, like when Obama thought we had like 57 states in the Union or whatever it was. Anyone who's under that much pressure would make a few simple, trivial mistakes. Also, Perry has enough actual problems that we don't need to nitpick the small stuff that just makes liberals look petty.

Well said!

...would be some liberal ideas. Mocking conservatives is not a very good plan for governing, as the past three years have shown. Now it's a failure to "compromise," two years ago it was "elections have consequences," pretty much all bad ones, apparently. Then it was Republicans can be "on the bus" but they have to be at the back - great imagery, btw - now it's a do-nothing Congress, even though half of it is still controlled by Democrats. The Senate has not approved a budget in nearly 1000 days! What we need is leadership. What we're getting is positioning for re-election. In the meantime, our trillion dollar deficits just get put on our kid's credit card.

Republitards love me. It's why they are called the party of "NO!"

I thought the Republicans were the party of hate.

Dec 01 11 - 10:43am

@G&F - Only if you ask liberals. Plenty of hate on the left, undoubtedly more than the right.

Dec 01 11 - 1:06pm

Except for the fact that you are lying.

I'm really starting to like this Perry chap. He's kind of endearing in a strange way.
