A Village in Texas Is Missing an Idiot

Thursday, November 10, 2011

It only took 53 seconds for TX Gov. Rick Perry to kill his presidential campaign.

Perry suffered from another severe case of brain freeze on stage last night at the ninth Republican presidential debate in Michigan, forgetting which federal agencies he would cut if elected president.

While answering a question about the federal tax code, Perry announced that he would eliminate three agencies.

“It’s three agencies of government when I get there that are gone. Commerce, education and …” Perry said before an audibly long, awkward pause.

Finally a rival tried to come to the rescue. “The EPA?” former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney chimed in.

“There you go,” Perry said before admitting that that was not the one he had intended. Moderator John Harwood interjected, saying, “Seriously?”

“No sir,” Perry replied.

“But you can’t name the third one,” Harwood persisted. Perry then tried again.

“Education, commerce and the third … ” After 53 seconds he gave up. “I can’t,” Perry said. “Oops.”

    Rick Perry needs to drop out of the race. His continued missteps are showing that 1): Perry is not presidential material, 2): is not listening to his advisers, 3): is not willing to put in the needed time and energy to ensure he has a command of his own talking points. I predict he will drop out before Michele Bachmann who is always prepared and ready to rumble.

    It’s painful even for a guy who despises people like this. My comment left at another place –

    He’s as dumb as a box of fucking rocks! That has always been a given. What’s the surprise here. It’s another example of how far in the shitter we are when guys like this are considered presidential material.

    Perry needed to hit the ground running. Instead, he crashed into the ground and burned. Perry’s campaign is over. There no amount of money in the world that can save Perry’s campaign. He’s a clown. A joke and an embarrassment. Perry will be gone before Christmas. His debate performance wasn’t just a failure; it was an epic failure.

  4. R.J. says:

    Perry is as dumb as the rock that had “N*ggerhead” painted on it.

  5. Gindy53 says:

    He can gaffe all he wants but the fact is he wants to do away with three very important departments that over see three hugely important areas of our country. THAT is the gaffe, not his forgetting things.

  6. Brigadoon says:

    Watching this video clip I almost — almost, feel sorry for the guy.

  7. Seabec says:

    What fascinates me is, what on earth makes people like Rick Perry think he is qualified to be the president of the United States? Does he really look in the mirror and think, “Yes Sir, y’all, I have the stuff the lead the most powerful nation on earth.” If so, he’s delusional.

  8. PUMA Lisa 1972 says:

    Rick Perry is like George Bush with an lobotomy. The Walking Brain Dead.

  9. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    Texas….. Number one in producing IDIOTS…… First Bush & now Perry.

  10. Harry says:

    Oops, I did it again. What a damned dope.

  11. The Real Adam says:

    Stunning. Appalling. Shocking. This ranks right up there with the late Gerald Ford saying Poland wasn’t under the reach of the Soviet Union.

    Seriously, even Sarah Palin had enough sense to not rely on her pea brain and write the answers on her hand. Most telling will be the winnowing of campaign dollars to Perry’s campaign. He will blow through whatever money he has now and then his campaign will draw to a close.

  12. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    “Rick Perry is like George Bush with an lobotomy.”


  13. Peace Nick says:

    How is it that Rick Perry keeps getting reelected to office?

    Is there a culture in Texas that celebrates stupidity over intelligence, failure over accomplishment, and intellectual laziness over vibrant analysis? The race to the bottom appears to be alive and well in the Lone Star State. Thank goodness Rick Perry will never be president.

  14. Insouciant says:

    Texas is a conservative state. The troubling thing is, it is becoming more conservative with each passing generation.

    If you are a liberal Democrat or even a moderate Republican, the state of Texas would prefer you move. I know. I used to live in Dallas and the undercurrent of conservatism finally pushed me to move to a suburb of Chicago, Illinois.

    About Rick Perry. Texans are deeply distrustful of intellectuals. They would rather elect a moron than a well educated, well-read man or woman to run the state. Add in a few “aw shucks” and “yes, Mames and yes Sirs,” and Texans get teary-eyed. Go figure?

  15. DMason says:

    Seabec – Ricky’s presidential aspirations have their origins with Anita Perry. Anita wants to be the First Lady more than anything else in the world.

  16. Randy Arroyo says:

    With this performance I can finally understand how Perry got a D in Physical Ed at Texas A&M.

  17. Fran says:

    Ugh! Make it stop.

  18. nonnie9999 says:

    that’s why he only has 2 kids. remembering the name of a third would be too taxing on his brain.

  19. okjimm says:

    Ha! What Nonnie said….. ! funny! Perry is almost as funny as that Black Guy, what’s his name… hold it, I’m thinking, it is at the tip of my tongue…. oh, Big Chunky Snowflake!!!! Candy Cain… Oreo Pizza…. I’ll get it yet…. lemmee get back to you.

  20. Harry says:

    Oops, he did it again, stuck his head up his ass, and killed his presidential aspirations. Perry is not that smart after all.
