Since one disastrous Texas governor was not enough, there are some in the Rethuglican party who are talking about Governor Little Ricky Goodhair entering the 2012 presidential race. Like they say in Texas, Oy vey, y’all.
From the Houston Press HAIR BALLS Blog:
Governor Rick Perry appeared on the Fox News network for an interview with Neil Cavuto.
Cavuto made the somewhat dubious statement that Perry is “very popular outside your state, still popular but not nearly as popular within your state.”
Asked why Texas wasn’t exactly in love with him, Perry said, “I say that a prophet is generally not loved in their hometown. That’s both Biblical and practical.”
Good, humble answer, sir.
It’s not that conservatives don’t like Perry because he tried to force innocent sixth-grade girls to be given the “slut shot” anti-STD vaccine Gardasil, or to impose a billions-of-dollars boondoggle of a highway/rail/hoverboat/flying car transportation system throughout some of the emptier parts of the state.
And it’s not that moderates don’t like him because he wants to give carte blanche to polluters and slash the state’s education system to shreds.
It’s because neither group recognizes the Prophet-like genius of Rick Perry.
