Rick Perry, who clearly has as his biggest priority making you think he’s carrying a concealed weapon, hit the Iowa campaign trail with gusto on Monday. And given the strong insanity of his opponents he knew he needed to make a big splash. Mission accomplished sir, mission accomplished.
“If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I dunno what y’all would do to him in Iowa but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treasonous in my opinion.”
So monetary policy by a Bush appointee in charge of “monetary policy” becomes treason. Meanwhile, secession, is the height of patriotism. If nothing else in the last decade you would think we’ve had enough of Republicans accusing others of treason, or questioning others’ patriotism — but no, Perry is merely its hypocritical perfection.
Time to unleash Iowa’s only defense mechanism against right-wing lunatics. The corndog picture.
