If Rick Perry Becomes President Can He Secede?
Gov. Rick Perry figured he’d make a fierce run at the presidency, win the Republican nomination, and then even if he somehow lost to Barack Obama a year from now, he’d return to Texas with a higher national profile, more experience and contacts, and poised for another presidential bid in 2016.
He probably never considered he’d become a laughing stock and destroy his credibility. Many people will never look at him the same. Or take him seriously. Or vote for him.
While we’re waiting for his political career to slowly die, feel free to read this Star-Telegram story. It claims Perry is about to “propose sweeping consolidation of federal agencies,” which Perry says will “uproot all three branches of government.”
Perry can’t name those branches of government, but they’ll be uprooted, by gawd, and maybe even done away with all together if he’s elected. How’s that for cleaning out Washington! In yo face, Washington!
Then Perry will sit down to snack on a bacon, lettuce, and…uh…a sandwich that has bacon, lettuce, and…uh…it’s a…can’t think of the third ingredient now.
And while he’s snacking he’ll watch reruns of his favorite comedy trio, Moe, Curley, and…uh…let’s see…they’re stooges…three of them… .
Then he’ll relax and listen to songs by his favorite band Crosby Stills &…uh…what’s that other guy’s name?
(Don’t worry Rick, nobody cares about Nash).
