Rick Perry is having some difficulty getting people to believe he’s actually a viable candidate for President.
You’re shocked, right?
Rick has been spectacularly unsuccessful in raising money for his Presidential campaign. This reporting period he raised a grand total of $103,537.00. That would be okay if he were running for a safe Republican House seat in Nebraska. Which, come to think of it, is something he ought to consider doing.
Here’s the paperwork. Click the little one to see the big one.
By the way, in case you’re wondering – only 8 contributions came from outside of Texas. And seven of those came from the Wildwood Mental Health Facility in Greensboro, Georgia. Okay, so I made that last part up. So sue me.
Thanks to Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen for the heads up.
Let’s mosey on over to New Mexico, where a couple was living in a hotel room with a 3 year old, a 2 year old, and another baby due next month.
Authorities said a 3-year-old boy got hold of a handgun from his mother’s purse and fired just one shot that wounded both his parents.
Albuquerque police said the toddler apparently reached for an iPod but found the loaded weapon.
Both parents are only wounded. Had I been living in a hotel room with two adults and two toddlers with another on the way, I’d have shot them a long time ago.
Local media reports said police believed Saturday’s shooting was accidental.
So the kid is a nicer person than I am.
Thanks to Zyxomma for the heads up.
Coming as a shock to no one, classmates of Jeb Bush report that he was a marijuana and hash smoker and was known to bully people.
The only thing that bothers me about his marijuana use, which he admits to doing, is that he opposes legalization of marijuana – even for medical use.
Kids his age went to prison for smoking marijuana but he still doesn’t want to legalize it. That just doesn’t seem right.
Damn typical Bush.
Here’s the part that caught my eye.
Things started badly for Bush. He had completed ninth grade in Houston, but he was advised to repeat it at Andover. Still, he barely got grades high enough to avoid being expelled, he said in the interview.
And they call him The Smart One?
Thanks to Chris for the heads up.
What’s a girl supposed to do for fun when the Republicans won’t cooperate?
Mitt Romney decided not to run for President again. Dang, I was so looking forward to watching him act like he cares about poor people. And Ann. I will so miss Ann measuring for White House drapes.
So I imagine the remaining ship of fools are stabbing each other in the back over getting Romney’s support. That might be kinda fun!
