Question: Does he believe the nonsense or was this his agenda to court the extremely conservative. Crazy to think someone would sell their own beliefs/principles for an appointment to a position of power but, really, it happens all the time. He's a dim wit anyways. His days are done. On to Fox News with him.
No, I rarely watch Letterman (or any late night TV), but clips of it are turning up on the political talk shows, and he just compounds the mistake by going on those shows. As a Texan, I am embarrassed by this jackass. The last time he was reelected, the former mayor of Houston (our largest city) challenged him to debates, but Perry, as he has consistently done in former races, declined. Now, we know why. I think he would lose a debate with a ten-year-old who has half his brain tied behind his back. Perry is a dunce. I doubt if he makes it to three digits in the I.Q. department. He is an embarrassment, but the good thing about his primary run is that he might not get reelected next time. Either that, or they may put term limits on the ballot.
He said he wanted to get rid of "education". First of all, I'm not sure if that's a department in Washington. Second of all, If it is, I'm pretty sure he won't win over many voters by saying that.
I guess Arne Duncan is the head of a nonexistent department then.
Well, of course he wants to get rid of education. Since he obviously has an I.Q. in the double digits, he wouldn't want to become disadvantaged; then, he would have to go on government assistance. Seriously, totalitarian regimes the world over retain power by keeping their minions illiterate. I am not surprised this asshole got a college degree: he was a cheerleader and went to a university that, at the time, emphasized its ROTC and animal husbandry programs as well as football above all else.
I'm so sorry you live in his state, Steph.
