Rick Perry: Best Little **** in Texas

By Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone

Rick Perry: Best Little ***** in Texas

Here's a segment from the middle of this very detailed, long article:


"To recap: Rick Perry sold the right to tax Texas highway drivers to Spanish billionaires, let a British firm write a law authorizing the sale of virtually all Texas state property to foreign corporations, and tried to literally sell the lives of retired Texas schoolteachers to a Swiss bank. Yet he's somehow built a reputation in the national media as a fist-shaking America-first nativist, with a Tea Partier's passion for small government."

I couldn't agree more. Rick Perry is government for sale to the highest bidder.

Forgot to mention that he's a secessionist (which involves kicking foreign military - US troops - out of Texas)

LOL. I thought the Perry threads were over. We all know what he's done in Texas. There's nothing new except that he came out against the SCV license plate design. I guess that makes up for that hunting place he rented.
