When I read about Rick Perry’s prayer service in which he invited a faux–or “messianic”–rabbi to urge the conversion of Jews to Christianity, I knew I was gonna have to take this jackass on someday (and maybe more than once, depending on how far he goes in the primaries). But today is his lucky day. He really hit the jackpot when he accused Federal Reserve chair Ben Bernanke of “treason” and threatened him with lynching if he ever stepped foot in Texas:
Gov. Rick Perry…suggest[ed] that the monetary policies of the Federal Reserve were potentially “treasonous” and could warrant “ugly” treatment should the Fed chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, ever pay a visit to Texas.
“Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous — or treasonous in my opinion,” Mr. Perry said Monday…criticizing the possibility of the central bank’s taking further steps between now and the election to keep interest rates low.
He added, “I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas.”
I swear there are more dingbats running for president on the Republican side than there are residents in some towns in Texas. Of one thing you can be sure, given his record in the race so far–upon election, his first two presidential orders will direct Jews to convert and the Justice Department to arrest Ben Bernanke for treason. Should they convict the latter and should any Jews fail to accept Perry’s gracious offer, he could have himself a ‘twofer’ by hanging them en masse in Lafayette Park. It’d make quite a spectacle and start his presidency off with quite a bang so to speak. Next, he’d make Michael Ledeen his defense secretary and find a few puny countries to knock the shit out of, to show the world who’s boss. That’s surely get things off to a flying start, don’t you think?
As for an economic policy, who needs one when you can just take a few economists and fed governors out and shoot ’em at sunrise? Between the lunacy of Michelle Bachman, Rick Perry, Herman Cain and the rest of that lot, there’s gonna be lots of fun before this primary season is over. Stay tuned.

Yes, and that is because they know deep down that they have not a snowballs chance in hell of winning, even as American’s turn more and more to the left, the more kookier elements of the Republican party come out of the woodwork. Even the traditional Evangelicals right wing is turning left. It’s only the older, mainly low income, Bible Belt Evangelical that is still staunchly right. The younger generation is not. That is why they’re stuck with these world class losers, spongers, bigots and trash candidates
That is why Rick Perry is making these loud statements about converting freely, why Palin hasn’t announced her intent to run yet. Allen West replied “Nuts” to a CAIR request asking him to distance himself from Muslim haters. If West were a serious contender he would have known that would sound the death knell for his ambitions. Most the one million dollars he has had donated, came from the tea party crowd, so he probably knows that he is only cheered on by a certain segment of the population, one that rouses the wrath of the average American. All these Republicans candidates wouldn’t be freely venting
As it stands, there really is only one party in the USA today. The Democrats. Other than star quality, and an attractive persona, Obama has little to offer by way of “change”. He has been a disappointment.
It could be that he is saving his bag of tricks for his second run as President where the much touted “change” will come about.
Cynical anti American’s might even be wishing that a “tea party” candidate would win the Presidency, for obvious reasons 🙂
Of one thing you can be sure, given his record in the race so far–upon election, his first two presidential orders will direct Jews to convert and the Justice Department to arrest Ben Bernanke for treason.

I think you are VERY optimistic to say Americans are shifting Left. It does not look that way to me!
Is there a website you can sign up for this? i just want to take a look i’m not going to give up my Pastafarian’s beliefs just yet.
He doesn’t have a chance to win? I said that about Bush, too. Sigh.
Since Bernanke is Jewish, if he converted to Christianity, would he get a pass on being lynched?
Mind you, the opinion that the decisions made by the Federal Reserve over the last decade plus have created rather than solved US financial problems is a legitimate stance. The point is that he’s just huffing and puffing. It’s a pose. He’s pretending he actually wants to address this real problem because a segment of the electorate is serious about it. But … in the end, he will be kissing Ben Bernanke’s ass and celebrating every bad decision he makes before he takes him to task.
Ummm … the Ron Paul angle too. Just reading on it. Perry’s basically trying to take a chunk out of Ron Paul by pretending he is anti-fed. Since Ron Paul actually has the interesting, real, credible ideas rather than the same old tired pablum, each candidate will likely try to weaken and marginalize him by pretending to share his views only to immediately abandon them were they to become president.
RE: [Perry] added, “I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas.”

They’ve been known to treat Democratic presidents pretty ugly down in Texas, for that matter.
