The main problem with Rick Perry saying ignorant things is that it encourages the masses in Texas to do the same.
Mason, Texas, where the town’s motto is “Yeah, well, we never heard of you either,” has a certified license to carry school run by a man named Crockett Keller. Now I gotta fess up right here that I am gonna start writing the book that’s been jangling around in my head since I now have the main character’s name – Crockett Keller.
Except, my Crockett Keller, unlike the real one, will have a brain.
It seems that the 65 year old Crockett bought himself some advertising for his license to carry school on the radio station in Mason, Texas. Since Mason, Texas, ain’t a place you can get to accident, I suspect “radio station” means Joe Bob’s Ham Radio and Feed Store.
Here’s what Crockett Keller said:
“If you are a socialist liberal and/or voted for the current campaigner-in-chief, please do not take this class. You have already proven that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision as required under the law.
“Also, if you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you the class. Once again, with no shame, I am Crockett Keller. Thank you and God Bless America.”
Spoke like a true Christian, by gawd.
Now, I imagine there ain’t exactly herds of libruls and Arabs in Mason, Texas, but I could be wrong about that. No, I’m not wrong; I just said that to be nice. Mason is off the highway between Llano and Junction. They voted 73% for John McCain and Sarah Palin. That’s not like hanging out the welcome sign for diversity, you know.
You can listen to Crockett on the radio right about here. You might want to listen just to hear him try to pronounce “Muslim.”
Now the State of Texas can’t take away Crockett’s right to teach the licensing class “unless a written complaint, complete with evidence, is filed.”
So what we need is a Librul in an Obama tee-shirt to head directly to Mason, Texas with a film crew. And a police escort. And a couple of cattle prods. And open up a yoga class across the street from Crockett. With free beer. And a big screen for football games. And a Monster Truck Rally field in the back. And girls, girl, girls.
Crockett is 65 years old. His heart ain’t that strong. There are some weapons better than a handgun.
