Quote of the Day


"'If you’re looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills,' Perry says, 'we already have that — and he’s destroying our economy. I’m a doer, not a talker.' He’s a doer! He does things! Things that don’t involve communicating effectively! Things like taking pain medication, possibly! And he won’t read off a teleprompter, because he may not be able to read!"

-- Alex Pareene in Salon, on Rick Perry's ridiculous new ad in which he chuckles along with his own inability to avoid regularly tripping over his own tongue, makes fun of Barack Obama for reading off of a teleprompter, and does both while reading off of a teleprompter

Not for nuthin', but Perry's pic on his twitter feed? He's literally cuddling a puppy to his face…which I assume is his way of calming the animal right before he sacrifices it to his gods.

Again, the standards for normalcy in this country keep sliding lower and lower…

...And again with the fucking teleprompter digs? Don't these people have any sense of irony?

What Rick, no guns in your commercial; no "I don't know about yee'all, but in Texas we would..."? How about under the Rick Perry Regime we would have more executions...a lot more; and sure the unemployment problem would go away, now just put on your McDonald's uniform and welcome aboard.

'If you’re looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills,' Perry says, 'we already have that — and he’s destroying our economy.'

If is in the conditional...

So, if we are not looking for a slick politician nor a guy with great teleprompter skills, then we don't already have that — and he’s not destroying our economy?
