Rick Perry is a desperate man saying desperate things. He knows that God wants him to be President but – not to call names or place blame or anything – God ain’t lending a linguistic helping hand.
In New Hampshire last night Perry suggested to a town hall that he would retaliate against career civil service employees if they disagreed with him.
I don’t think you can fire federal bureaucrats, but you can reassign them. So reassign them to some really god-awful place,” he said, eliciting laughter from the audience.
Those federal bureaucrats are civil service workers. They most certainly can be fired but I have doubts that most of them will agree with Rick Perry that the earth is flat and that there should be a kickboxing hall of fame with a Chuck Norris statue out front.
I have a long list of god-awful places, but Rick Perry’s brain still leads the list.

FDA Declares Rick Perry a Vegetable
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – In a decision that raised some eyebrows in the nutrition community, the Food and Drug Administration announced today that it had declared Texas Governor Rick Perry a vegetable.
The decision, effective immediately, means that a serving of Mr. Perry would be approved for school lunches across the nation.
In an official statement, Mr. Perry said he was “surprised and honored” by the FDA’s decision.
“As a vegetable, I am honored to join the other three food groups,” said Gov. Perry. “Meat, dairy, and… nope, can’t do it. Oops.”
