Do You Suppose He Meant Lubbock?

Rick Perry is a desperate man saying desperate things.  He knows that God wants him to be President but – not to call names or place blame or anything – God ain’t lending a linguistic helping hand.

In New Hampshire last night Perry suggested to a town hall  that he would retaliate against career civil service employees if they disagreed with him.

I don’t think you can fire federal bureaucrats, but you can reassign them. So reassign them to some really god-awful place,” he said, eliciting laughter from the audience.

Those federal bureaucrats are civil service workers.  They most certainly can be fired but I have doubts that most of them will agree with Rick Perry that the earth is flat and that there should be a kickboxing hall of fame with a Chuck Norris statue out front.

I have a long list of god-awful places, but Rick Perry’s brain still leads the list.

FDA Declares Rick Perry a Vegetable

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – In a decision that raised some eyebrows in the nutrition community, the Food and Drug Administration announced today that it had declared Texas Governor Rick Perry a vegetable.

The decision, effective immediately, means that a serving of Mr. Perry would be approved for school lunches across the nation.

In an official statement, Mr. Perry said he was “surprised and honored” by the FDA’s decision.

“As a vegetable, I am honored to join the other three food groups,” said Gov. Perry. “Meat, dairy, and… nope, can’t do it. Oops.”

Thanks to Kathleen for the heads-up.

  1. Gosh, isn’t Rick Perry an employee – can we send him to some sort of god-awful place. Wait can you imagine him at the DMV?

  2. So Perry & his supporters are like the communists who exiled people, who disagreed with them, to Siberia.

  3. Kate oDubhagain says:

    “Mad, bad and dangerous to know.”

  4. Let me try that “silver lining thing”. I would suggest that most voters have neither the time nor inclination to do do diligence about candidates for office. Up until Perry decided to make an ass out of himself – a public spectacle – Texas voters saw only the veneer of this guy. The cowboy costume and a few cute phrases coined by his press corps. His damaged reputation might get his derriere thrown out of office. Just a thought.

    Speaking of vegetables, Glenn Beck will be signing some book he thinks he wrote on Saturday 12/3 bet 1-2 at the Walmart on Sawdust Rd in The Woodlands.

    I wish Montgomery County had an active Dem Party or Occupy group who could show up and mic check him. Or at least poke him a little bit.

  6. Uuuummmm. So Rick is threatening VOTERS who are civil servants and are supposed to have non partisan jobs? Maybe old cabbage for brains doesn’t think federal employees get to vote.

    Anita—come and get your spouse. He’s stinking up the place with stupid!

  7. Wonder if Rick Perry now knows that a person can vote at 18 years of age, also what date the election is, what a laugh asking people to vote for you on Nov 12 when the election is Nov 6. Oops again!

    I personally know about Perry purging people. I got fired by his minions. My Director who was a Bush guy got forced out before me. A retired Military Lawyer was not conservative enough for Perry. He was replaced by a Deacon of Cornerstone Church. Perry will replace anyone who even speaks against their agenda. I am sure enjoying his screw ups.

    Trouble with Perry trying to figure out what God wants him to do. Guess he found P R burnt into his toast one morning and thought it meant Presidential Race. God probably was indicating Please Retire.

    Andy Borowitz, I disagree. Perry is not a vegetable. He is a whole-grain. Whole-grain toast!
