Now If Only There was a Vaccine for Stupid


If you picked "8 days" in the over-under pool for how long it would take Texas Governor Rick Perry to run screaming to the federal government for help after bombastically declaring that his state should secede from the union, congratulations -- you win.

I think God hates Texas--or at least Rick Perry. First he ranted and raved against the stimulus package and almost immediately wanted help from the federal government to combat the Mexican drug cartels; now he's been threatening to secede from the union and gets hit by the swine flu. Brilliant.

It looks like having large quantities of Tussin does not qualify as adequate pandemic prevention like you thought it would be, Governor Perry.

What a mealy-mouthed, weaselly tool.

Why not ask the aging hairpiece Chuck Norris to beat the swine flu up?

Douche-bag. Asshat.

Karma!

Pick your favorite!

Dear Governor Perry,

I'd love to help, but unfortunately I'm not a real American.

I live in Texas and I get a front-row seat to all the whacked-out antics of this cry baby politician all the time.

Just remember...he only became governor in the first place because he took over Dubya's seat when he left for the White House.

Yup...
Personally, I'm looking forward to voting this asshat out of office. Too bad the rest of Texas isn't like Austin.
(Watch all the "real" Texans get all pissy and call me out for being an Austin "weirdo" now.)

Jeremy,

You Austin weirdo!

You are alot closer to Perry than the rest of us; get him out of there NOW!

We like Bill White in Houston.

the same guy who wants to shove the HPV vaccine into the arm of every little girl in Texas. it's sick.

No, it's not sick. The girls would be, though, without the vaccine.

don't get me started. he only mandated that hpv vaccine because of his ties to the pharmaceutical company that makes it. plus, there are no long-term studies on the adverse affects the hpv vaccine will have on the girls' reproductive health. it IS sick.

As Willie Nelson said..."I'm not from Texas...I'm from Austin."

Amen and pass the organic veggies.
