I checked in with TexasFred to see how Gov. Goodhair is faring in Greater Wingnuttia and, lo and behold, things are looking not-so-good for our man Rick. Fred lists 3 issues that, for him, put Rick out of the running and they are: 1) Letting "illegals" get in-state tuition, 2) the HPV vaccine ruckus and.....wait for it.....3) Rick's suggestion that the US invade Mexico! That's right! Fred is, of course, just fine with shooting anyone that crosses the border illegally into the US from Mexico but apparently thinks having our military go down to "help" Pres. Calderon fight the drug cartels is just silly. And, believe me, it's downright scary to see Fred say anything that I agree with!
Fred expresses reservations that Rick might yet redeem himself with actions that show sufficient remorse for past transgressions - or something - so I'm kind of waiting to see if N*****-gate doesn't turn Perry's fortunes around amongst the boneheads of Texas, remembering that what is unconscionable to normal people is a distinct mark in the Plus Column for the Republican party base. But apparently Rick is so full of Cow Wow that even knuckle-dragging teabaggers think he's a loser. You know, that's kind of an accomplishment in itself!
