Okay, so we all know that Rick Perry does not have the greatest memory, thanks to a performance in a recent debate where he attempted to list three agencies he would eliminate as president, and then, in front of the entire world, forgot the third one mid-sentence. This truly is a forgivable offense, because public speaking is an art that some people just cannot master. I have always thought of Perry as somewhat of a harmless buffoon, because I did not think the American people would vote for such an idiot, but I should know better, because they voted for his twin brother, George W. Bush. Perry’s latest action, in an attempt to save his dwindling campaign, was to release a 30-second ad stating how strong he is, and giving his brief thoughts on what is wrong with America. Well, a bad economy be damned, apparently, that is small potatoes for Rick. In his ad, which has since gone viral, the unabashed fanatical Christian crusader had the following to offer:
“I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a Christian, but you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.”
Alright, Rick! Way to stay relevant! I guess no one besides the fringe, hate-mongering die-hard Christian base will back you, so you had to appeal to their senses. Gays can serve in the military, so obviously that equates to good Christian children not being allowed to pray in school, since obviously, children in this country are deprived of that. The fact is, if the child in question, who was not allowed to pray, was a Jew or Muslim, would the same mindset apply? Between a Christian and a Muslim, which one would draw more stares by classmates if he or she started praying? The Muslim, of course. So if that child was then forced to stop praying, would righteous Rick be so quick to defend him? I think not, just like the rest of the hypocritical Christians would not either. The fact is, Rick Perry is nothing but a bigot (or a moron, or both). If he wants to be a proud Christian, that’s fantastic, but don’t force your views on the rest of this country. If you want to start a theocracy, then go somewhere else where you can have your own country. Maybe you, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Santorum can all chip in to buy an island—I’m sure many wealthy Christians would support your endeavor.
So, I guess Newt Gingrich, another devout Christian who lambasted Bill Clinton for his scandal in the 1990′s, before he cheated on, and later divorced his own wife, the good Christian thing to do, is the last hope and savior of the Republican Party. Gee, don’t they stick to G.O.P to the letter? Grand OLD Party; yeah, you got that right. This is a party that has not nominated someone with black hair since Abraham Lincoln, and they just keep forcing these archaic old men down our throats. This election has been a gift to comedians and bloggers everywhere, and it would have been worse if both parties were going at it. This is a sad state for our country, who will once again be settling instead of selecting a candidate.
Just make sure to vote Republican for the same old ass-backwards political nonsense—business as usual. They say they have morals, and they like to throw their morals in everyone’s faces. How is that for good Christian charity? It is people like Perry who make the rest of us embarrassed to be Christians, and make those of us with sense scream GOOD RIDDANCE at politics in America. As for the G.O.P, they should change their name to the O.W.C, short for Old White Christians, because if you aren’t one, they don’t want you in this country.
Too bad this didn’t happen a week earlier, because they old Rick surely would have been eligible for my “Idiot of the Year” Awards voting…
