At Some Point, This Becomes a Mental Health Issue

December 30, 2011 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

There a fairly famous case in Texas.  It’s called Lawrence v. Texas and it threw out Texas’ anti-sodomy law.

It’s so famous that Rick Perry wrote about it in his book.

Oops.

When asked about it yesterday in Cedar Rapids, Perry responded —

“I wish I could tell you I knew every Supreme Court case. I don’t … I’m not a lawyer,” Perry told the person who posed the question. “We can sit here and play ‘I gotcha’ questions on ‘What about this Supreme Court case’ or whatever, but let me tell you — you know and I know that the problem in this country is spending in Washington, D.C. It’s not some Supreme Court case.”

Asked directly later by a journalist whether he knew what the case is, Perry said, “I don’t.” He added, “I’m not taking the bar exam.”

As my freind Sharon says, “Thank the lord he isn’t taking the bar exam because the folks at TABC just don’t hand out bartender licenses.”

It was in your damn book, Rick.  I know you didn’t write it but at least you could have had someone read it to you.

And this is fun —

Asked Thursday if there was any Iowa outcome that could change his determination to press on with his campaign, Perry said, “That’s God’s will. There might be an outcome that He decides that I wouldn’t go on.”

Yeah, I think God has had his little fun with you, Rick.  You can come home now.

Thanks to Sharon for the heads-up.

  1. hahahahahahahahahahaahaha.

    Its funny ’cause every time you think Rick can’t get more
    ridiculously inept, he does.

  2. I have to hand it to the Governor. When the magical sky wizard wills that Rick trips over himself in public, Rick just gets up and submits himself to the will of the all-powerful once again. It’s very biblical. Maybe he was confused when he said he created jobs and meant that he was getting the same treatment as Job.

    I love your non-blog, Juanita Jean. It’s rapidly replacing The Immoral Minority as my favorite.

    OHHH noes…Rick is really the dullest knife in the drawer, isn’t he? The national media has all but stopped covering these fantastic tidbits.

    Who has really been running Texas for the last ten years? Does Rick have his own Turd Blossom?

  5. I guess The Lege is running Texas. Such as it is. All the Gov has to do is show up when it’s time to sign something, and that’s only when The Lege is in session. So, you see, we really don’t need the gov here right now.
