If you’re anything like me, you may have wondered what the hell made TX Gov. Rick “I’m a Prophet” Perry think he could successfully run for president?
A simpleton from West Texas, who never held a non-government job in his adult life, who owes his current job to George W. Bush and who inspired Larry Flynt to offer $1 million if someone — female or male could deliver proof that Perry had illicit sex, was in any way, shape or intellect, suited to be president?
Well, now we have the answer.
Please meet Texas first
beard lady Anita Perry. Ms. Perry is a devout evangelical Christian. At a speech at North Greenville University in South Carolina, Ms. Perry said her husband’s decision to seek the presidency in August followed an encounter with a “burning bush.”
Now, I’m the first to admit I didn’t know what the hell she was talking about when I read this but apparently, Anita Perry’s burning bush was a reference to a Biblical yarn of Moses receiving a sign from God and not the recent wildfires that charred more 35,000 acres and destroyd 1,554 homes, made worse by the fact that her husband, in his infinite wisdom, cut funding for the volunteer fire departments that protect most of Texas from wildfires.
So if the sight and sound of TX Gov. Rick Perry sends you looking for the TV remote control to change the channel, blame Anita Perry’s burning bush.
