Rick Perry’s God Problem

Rick Perry got me thinking the other day.  He had an encounter with a fourteen year old bisexual girl that went like this:

“This is about my faith, and I happen to think that there are a whole host of sins, homosexuality being one of them,” Perry said, adding that he himself was “a sinner” so he wouldn’t “be the first one to throw a stone”.[Read more]

Keep Crawling, Rick

Ah, yes…poor Rick Perry!  What a week this has been for the GOP presidential candidate.  What’s the good news for this one-time front runner?   Rick is getting more and more fit with all of that back-peddling he’s been doing lately.  The bad news?  Apparently, he keeps saying things that could make the TeaPublicans think he has a heart.  … [Read more]

Against Ending A War?

Polls have said for several years that the majority of Americans are against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  We’re still a long away from peace but, for many, President Obama’s announcement that the troops will be pulled out of Iraq to come home in time for the holidays was a welcome announcement.  Of course, we all know you can’t please everyone….[Read more]

Six Weeks of GOP Debates

Last night’s debate among Republican presidential candidates was the fifth debate in six weeks.  My summary:

  • *Yawn*
  • Herman Cain still hasn’t walked away from the very idea that an electric fence to keep out undocumented immigrants may present significant problems — like electrocuting people.
  • *Yawn*
  • Rick Perry answered what he felt like answering, rather than the questions Anderson Cooper, the debate’s moderator, asked him.

Send In The Clowns…

Poor Charlie Rose…he’s known for his ability to skillfully conduct interviews and gather important information from public figures. I can’t begin to imagine what thoughts were swirling around his brain as he moderated the GOP presidential debate last night. Perhaps something like this?:

Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Agreed to have a battle;

For Tweedledum said Tweedledee

Had spoiled his nice new rattle.[Read more]

Is THIS The Best We’ve Got?

Really?  Oh, and by the way, I’m not talking about Republican presidential candidates Herman Cain (Oh Lawdhamercy), Mitt Romney (YAWN!), Rick Perry (WTLF?!?) and Michelle Bachmann (DUH!).  I’m talking about the people who currently hold seats in the US Senate and the people they deem worthy of listening to…like Alan Greenspan a.k.a., the fiscal grim reaper.… [Read more]

Oh Lord…

I like spiritual people; I can appreciate folks who use whatever means necessary to find peace and bring serenity into their lives without hurting and/or imposing upon other people.  It’s the fake religious folks, those with that ‘moral Christian soldier’ agenda who make my arse itch.The field of candidates for the office of President of the United States has widened… well, OK, we lost one applicant running for the position: Tim *YAWN* Pawlenty, former governor of Minnesota — we now have Rick Perry, governor of Texas, among the other political luminaries *cough!!*  such as Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain *LOL!!* and Rick Santorum *Google ‘Santorum’ HAHAHA!!*

*Sigh*   Yep…Perry is just what America needs, that is, if we’re interested in placing another religious zealot from Texas in the White House.  … [Read more]
