Ready For Prime Time?
In his first week on the trail, Rick Perry has accused lifelong Republican (and GOP appointee) Ben Bernanke of potentially "playing politics" in a treasonous manner. The secessionist threatening governor has questioned the president's patriotism as well as that dang theory of evolution ("Its only a theory out there"). He doesn't believe in global warming - thinks there is a widespread conspiracy in the scientific community to lie on the subject in pursuit of research dollars and pounds. He thinks religion (Islam? Christianity? Buddhism?) should play a greater role in the public square while the federal government should be as inconsequential as possible.
So this is what has become of today's GOP? A gaffe prone half wit Texas governor (Jim Hightower says he puts the "guber in gubernatorial"), an IRS hating former IRS employee mole, and a one-term governor without an ounce of conviction (better than a half term governor, I suppose).
Abraham Lincoln must be rolling in his grave.
