Rick "Good Hair" Perry: It's been hilarious

I don't even know what to say about the 2012 Presidential campaign. Certainly nothing that hasn't already been said. The newest news? Texas Governor Rick Perry has now dropped out of the race. I'm sure the rest of the nation is heaving a sigh of relief, unfortunately for us here in Texas, that means he's coming home to continue being an ineffectual governor.

It's amazing the kind of people it takes to run for office. First, you must be insanely arrogant. Every person who has thought "I could run this country", and followed through with actually throwing their hat into the ring, is so completely full of themselves, they probably don't have a ton of good friends. That goes for Clinton (both), Bush (both), Obama, Dukakis, Hatch, and many, many more. The thing about Rick Perry is that he's incredibly arrogant, yet was unprepared to prove WHY he was so much better of a choice for president, concluding that he obviously was not. The guy doesn't know how old you have to be to vote. He doesn't know when election day is. He doesn't think texting while driving should be illegal. He blocks journalists who don't agree with him on twitter, yet his twitter is public. WTF? And what gets me is that everyone thinks all of Texas support this guy, and we don't! I guess they have reason to believe that though, since this moron keeps winning. No wonder he didn't want to debate during the last gubernatorial election.

Bottom line, not everyone in this state is as out of it as Rick Perry. And interestingly enough, after nearly 2 years, I have yet to meet anyone who will admit to voting for him. So be grateful for the "sorta" sane politicians in your state. Unless Pete King represents you. That dude is nuts.

I've noticed a lot of the "crazies" come from Texas politics. Weird. The state is so big I guess that makes sense that most people don't even like him! I think the only candidate who I agree with on the most is Ron Paul & I'm not a Republican so if I want to vote for him in the primaries I gotta switch my party. Ugh.

Here in Oklahoma we have some crazies ourself! (See Sally Kern) Thankfully they're more local... But Mattress Mary WAS voted into governor on the basis of "Being a mother puts me above my opponent on ability to run the state" TRULY !She was running against a woman who devoted her WHOLE life to being in government, therefore had no family or children and Miss Mary Fallin was on her 2nd marriage after sleeping with her highway patrolman while she was lieutenant governor... These people only like "family values" when it's not them having affairs... smh..... I've lost hope....
