Incredible. TV talking heads predict Rick Perry to be the next president of the United States. To date, Perry has won only 718 votes in the Iowa straw poll. Incredible.
Give it a little time. At any given minute, Perry’s big ego is likely to over-power his big mouth. The man tends to get carried away. His views are extremist. (Google “rhetoric,” guv.)
Twice, Perry has suggested Texas might just damned well secede from the union. Then, he has the gall to question whether President Obama loves America. (Google “irony,” guv.)
Next comes Perry with a not-so-veiled threat to Ben Bernanke. “If this guy prints more money,” Mr. Perry said, pausing, “I don’t know what you all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas.” (Google “crass,” guv.)
Perry believes that every presidential candidate should wear French cuffs, custom cowboy boots, and pack a laser-sighted .380 Ruger. (Google “cartoon,” guv.)
Nope. I don’t think his Bush-lite routine will play on the national stage. And I would bet those 718 people in Iowa would agree. (Google “remorse,” guv.)
Wait until his thin skin blisters up. (Google “thin skin,” guv.)
