My thoughts exactly.

Thanks to Kyle for the heads up.

  1. Perry’s smart glasses don’t have the right glass in them.

  2. Do they have glass in them at all?

  3. Kinda gives credibility to that old saying: All hat and no cattle.

    And, like my phone is for me, it’s pretty bad when your glasses are smarter than you are.

  4. Gov pRick probably wears a Rodenstock frame, so he’s willing to pay a small fortune for a frame. But. There is an art to matching facial shape, coloring, etc and frame to make a pleasing result. For that, he’s batting 0.000.

  5. Oooo, pRick Perry! When GQ’s got your number, the game is over!!!!

  6. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Back from his “who did you say you were?” grand tour of Europe, Perry is met with a rolled up copy of GQ snap on the snout answer: no one.

  7. Unfortunately, they also named President Obama to the #2 spot on that list. (Although they said they’re ranked in no particular order.) But still….ouch!

  8. His Non-triumphant Tour of Europe ended with a whimper rather than a roar and now he’s returned to the place where they know more than his face. Including the President on that list may have seemed superficially smart, but they may rue that decision when the true tale is told.

  9. Glad to see Chris Crisco and Sarah Palin on that list, also, too.

  10. Man, every time Perry comes to mind I get this mental image of Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Too bad he grew up in Paint Creek, Texas, rather than Tyler. Otherwise they could be calling his “non-campaign” junkets the Perry Tyler Moron Show.

    To be honest,Perry reminds me of the new human waste powered bus I read about recently. Dress up dung with a fancy new name-renewable resource-and sure enough it is suddenly more palatable than before,but,it is still human waste (which includes the majority of wingnuts)

    I wouldn’t want to eat it. I doubt you would want to eat it and I sure as heck ain’t gonna let mikey eat it unless that mikey be a Huckabee.

    5 hours and 28 minutes into Thanksgiving Day,2014 and I’m not finding alot to be thankful for. Whatever. Enjoy yours while you can.

    e platypus onion, honey, you oughta come eat dinner with us and my inlaws and outlaws. I’m thankful that the two huge dishes of dressing and the gargantuan bowl of fruit salad and the stacks of plates we’re loaning to the dinner party and the two extra tables and the carving set we’re giving to the host and hostess (hey! two more items leaving the house permanently, hurray! for that I am thankful) and we’re just waiting for the moving van to arrive to carry all the stuff. I wish. Read a good novel while you wait. I’m reading THE GOOD LORD BIRD, a novel based on the nutty activities of John Brown and his campaign to free slaves. It’s wonderful. I’m not reading it righ this minute, obviously. It didn’t have to be baked or mixed or anything.

    Marge Wood, my comment was basically about how dark and lonely and cold(minus 13 today) this Thanksgiving Day looked at 5:30 AM Central Standard Time. It was just as dark and warmer a couple hours before then. 🙂

  14. Marge Wood says:

    Even more reason you should have a stack of good novels. Where ARE you, anyway? Alaska? Maine? Canada? Kansas? I’ll ship you some leftover cornbread dressing and fruit salad. That reminds me of a young college grad I knew here in Austin. I’d known him in Abilene too. He said that his mom couldn’t come for his birthday so she put birthday cake and ice cream in a ziploc bag and mailed them to him.

  15. Marge Wood says:

    Or Chicago. I bet that’s where you are. It’d take a stack of money waved in my face to get me to go there in the winter. Maybe it’s time for you to write the Great American Novel, although THE GOOD LORD BIRD surely is one of the greats. That, or WHISTLING SEASON which is very funny. You want a bundle of pencils and pens and a stack of leftover copy paper?

    NW by gawd ioway,is where I am. Obrien County-second county East and second county South of iowa,Minn,South Dakota borders meet. Was raised on US Hiway 59 in Cherokee,iowa(1953). Lived all my life within 20 miles of my birthplace.
    Exaggerated the cold temp yesterday-Thanksgiving. Officially it was minus eleven degrees,not thirteen below. Too cold for shoveling snow off neighbor’s driveway so I can feed her cats.

    Forget the novel. I have enough trouble with coherent sentences. Thanks just the same. 🙂

  17. @ epo – So you live in the area that’s noted (notorious?) for Steve King and also famous for Dewey the Library Cat. Unfortunately, the wrong one passed away some years back.

  18. e platypus onion says:

    UmptyDump- Dewey was in next county East of me(only 26 miles). King is in a whole nuther universe way out in La-La Land.

    For all you old time rodeo fans,I live about 15 miles(atcf) from from longtime rodeo stock producer-the late Bob Barnes of Barnes PRCA rodeo stock.

  19. I can almost hear the tune now, with syncopation:

    –by gawd

    Stephen King is from that area? Sheesh. Those cold, dark winters would explain a lot.
