Rick Perry is a Schmuck of Infinitesimal Proportions

Normally, I wouldn’t give this shit-fer-brains Texas Blagojevich the time of day, but in the interest of my pride as a Texan, I have to comment on Perry’s lastest episode of cerebral diarrhea.

Admitting you live in a state that has elected (excuse me, reelected) Rick Perry as governor and whose senators are Kay Bailey-Hutchinson and John Cornyn must be like admitting you have herpes. While I have no cause to admit the latter, I imagine great scorn emitting from those who are audience to my admission.

perry-douchebagAnd now, with Governor Imbecile saying Texas might have to secede, it is vein-poppingly frustrating to watch the national media equate his statements with me. (Though I shouldn’t talk, having blamed Alaska numerous times for the immersion of Sarah Palin into the national spotlight). Ugh.

Dictator Perry

If Texas were to secede, Perry would try to turn this state into a dictatorship as he is the poster child of political hypocrites giving figurative blow jobs to the corporate industry for cash. In 2007, Perry tried to issue an executive order forcing schoolgirls across the state to be vaccinated with Gardasil. Now, it seemed a bit “conflict-of-interesty” that Merck, the maker of Gardasil, had contributed to Perry’s PAC and some of his staff was on their payroll. Hmm… Very odd.

So, one man, one stupid, megalomaniacal idiot presumes he can dictate the health care of the state’s children. And what is so illuminatingly funny about this episode in relation to his comments yesterday is that the bastard said (while speaking here in Fort Worth, gag me):

I believe it’s (the government) become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of its citizens..

What a dick!!

So, forcing girls to receive a vaccine that has had widespread, proven negative side effects on numerous females isn’t an intrusion by the government into the lives of its citizens. Risking our daughters’ health for money. He’s not just a dipshit, he’s unethical and immoral. Never before had I actually wished an incurable, acute case of dysentery on someone. Unfortunately, I discovered I had no magical powers of the cursing persuasion. Poo.

The executive order was rescinded after the legislature was threatening action and every rick-perry-merck1demographic of every political persuasion forged a collective anger that grew intensely threatening to the governor. Right wingers were afraid the vaccine would turn all our innocent girls into whores on Main Street and the left wing was seething at the thought of such a violation of civil liberties. I would have been picketing until my extremities bled had the order really gone into effect.

And the man is running for reelection in 2010. Yes, my blood pressure has a visceral reaction to a potential Perry victory.

However, certain realities allay my fears that we will once again see Perry carry the mantle of leadership in our red, but improving Lonestar State.

First, Kay Bailey-Hutchinson is running and will hopefully best the sonofabitch in the Republican primary. While I would normally oppose such a objectionable use of a vote, I may vote in the Repub primary for Kay just to help knock Perry on his keister.

Second, and this is awesome, every major county in Texas went Democrat on Nov. 4, 2008 – Harris County (Houston), Dallas County (obviously, Dallas), Travis County (Austin), Duval County (San Antonio), and El Paso County (um…El Paso). Now, of course, the election of Obama drew many minorities to the polls that don’t normally turn out to vote. Still, the tides may be a-changing here in Texas and Republicans better take notice. Perry doesn’t want to take much of the stimulus money available to us and his policies are all capitulations to big business, like Bush. How surprising.

We’re tired of it. We’re over it. It’s time for a new chapter. We do, however, need strong, worthy left candidates to stand up and those are in short order because the oil and gas industry has such a stronghold on electoral results.

And if you think Perry is a scourge just us Willie-listeners have to deal with, he has national ambitions. He wasn’t going to run for governor again because he threw his lot in early with Giuliani before the ’08 election, bidding for a VP spot on the national ticket. Well, everyone saw Mayor 9/11 implode last year and Perry had to turn to the governor race in 2010 to stay relevant. Now, he’s making outrageous comments, like the secession crap, to assert himself nationally. If you can imagine, I’m not wishing him the best. In fact, if he loses in 2010 – especially in the primary – there’s a good chance his influence will evaporate and he’ll be just another nightmare in the past like his predecessor, Bush The Unequaled Disaster. I’m crossing my fingers.

All The Way With Kay!!! (for primary purposes only, that is)

Minnesota, Where’s the Anger?

If I lived in Minnesota, I’d be pissed. Norm Coleman as virtually no chance of winning the senate seat he and Al Franken are contesting through the courts. Furthermore, Coleman is under investigation over political donations that were illegally funneled through his wife. And, he has egg all over his reputation after saying he would step down if he in Franken’s position right after the election when the vote was too close to call. Now, the recount and numerous court decisions later, Franken is ahead and Coleman refuses to bow out. He probably has every prominent Republican in the state and in D.C. cheering his self-gratifying speed-bumpery to the democratic process because all are fearful of even more Democratic power on the Senate and none of them care if Minnesotans go years without fair representation.

The Repubs would be like pigs in mud to watch this thing play out for the next 6 years until the next election when they undoubtedly hope Obama’s poll numbers have waned and the field is ripe for Republican victory. John Cornyn (as a Texan, I never voted for him and never will) says the Repubs will launch WW III if the Dems try to see Franken and even the Minnesota seat could take “years” to resolve. What a lame-ass, piece of shit. At some point, you’d think people who claim to be of integrity would say enough is enough, acknowledge Franken’s victories and the likelihood that Coleman will find himself on the losing end of this stick and give the people of Minnesota their right to two freaking senators.

No big whoop. Unless you’re from Minnesota and you pay your taxes like every other of the 50 states. And you’re Sen. Amy Klobuchar, whose work has doubled during this debacle.

Now, yes, yes, the left is still and will ever-more be smarting over the 2000 election in which Al Gore won the popular vote. However, if Franken were losing all these recount battles, I’d hand the war over to Coleman – investigation or no investigation. The Repubs need to learn the value of fair representation and end their childish political games.

If this were happening in Texas – you’d be damned sure I’d be organizing demonstrations and protests or demanding a decrease in my taxes. No way in hell I’d sit by politely while political dickwads try to throw a wrench into my right to have my vote acknowledged.

Minnesotans should find their inner Cajun and start taking Coleman and his posse to task for clogging their democracy. Team N.C. would so collapse if the pressure grew strong enough.

Get angry, Minnesota! Get loud and demand what is rightfully yours! Make the news! Get your freaking second senator!!
