Yeah, we’re going political this week. T hates this stuff, but I can’t help but take a swing when a target as big as Governor Hair tees himself up. From threatening to secede to loudly promising to turn down stimulus funds (until he quietly accepted them), Rick Perry is a monument to Texas chutzpah.
He’s running for President using the tried and true strategy of kissing the base’s ass until he gets the nomination and then sprinting to the center as fast as he can. The problem with Perry is it’s a long, long sprint from where he is right now on the far right. In a race to the center, I think Obama’s got a huge head start.
So, if this stuff gets your thong in a twist (is that possible?), sit out the week and read Fred Basset. Rest assured we’ll be back next week with our regularly scheduled nonsense.
(Note: for those of you with stronger constitutions, you might check out the comments on our gocomics page. One reason I like to go full politico is that it certainly gets the readers riled. 25 comments so far today is a new record).
