"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

one more time to kill the pain

Emperor-Governor Goodhair Perry launched his re-election campaign this morning in scenic Lubbock. His campaign theme is (I am not making this up): "Proud Of Texas." (That's POT for those of you who prefer acronyms.)

Oh, the jokes are coming too quickly to get them all down. Perry's loud and proud. Perry: high on something besides Jesus. Lubbock on everything. Seriously, don't they hire people to notice these sorts of things? Why, why would anyone pick something with such obviously mockable overtones, especially when there's an unpleasant little rumored scandal in your past? Especially when you're one of the most ineffective governors in the history of the great state who hasn't been able to get school finance reform through in six (count 'em, SIX) legislative sessions and specials?

Maybe it's time to start that political consulting firm, girls.

(Jesus would weep for Texas, that's what.)
