I love everything about this.
Rick Perry, jockeying for the anti-gay vote: This ad, called “Strong,” has the Texas governor promising to end the Obama administration’s “war on religion” and touting his commitment to Christianity. “Something’s wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military,” Perry says, “but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas, or pray in school.” It’s unclear what policies President Obama has put in place to deny kids the right to openly celebrate Christmas. As of this writing, the video has 675 likes and 26,650 dislikes. source
Let’s add lots more dislikes.
“You want to add another candidate? It’s like the Republican primary is a season of American Idol in reverse, where every week you just add some other idiot.”
Jon Stewart killed it.
Some background on the case can be found here.
Rick Perry’s Execution problem: Though it’s beginning to look like an asset in a deep-red GOP primary process, the brouhaha over Rick Perry’s stewardship of the Texas death penalty continues – four more inmates are slated to die over the next eight days. In one case, a man named Duane Buck who shot and killed two people was subject to prejudicial testimony when a psychologist claimed his race (Buck is black) increased the likelihood of future dangerous acts. Another, Steven Woods, is to be executed for a murder that an accomplice has since claimed he carried out. Whatever your political stripe, these issues demand intense scrutiny from a responsible society (as this exemplary article illustrates, the odds that Texas has executed an innocent person seem gallingly high). source
Party of life, indeed.
What do you think Perry’s looking at? Maybe one of the roof panels is falling off.
I think he’s thinking about himself in the third person. Like “Rick Perry is on fire tonight. Oh wait, Rick Perry, don’t mention fire. Rick Perry’s whole state is burning and there’s no money to put it out. Someone should be executed for that. Don’t worry y’all, Rick Perry won’t commute that sentence.”
He has granted 31 death row commutations; most of those — 28 — were the result of a 2005 United States Supreme Court decision banning capital punishment for minors.
Rick Perry. The Texas governor conceded his book, “Fed Up!”, published last year, continues to be a goldmine for his detractors.
Knowing about how Perry thinks is bad for his career. Interesting concept. (via liberalsarecool)
