Dumb Enough To Stumble

If Rick Perry and George W. Bush had been born in the same family, W would have become known to friends as “the smart one.”Jim Moore

There’s a difference between ignorance and stupidity. George W. Bush was profoundly ignorant on most subjects, but he wasn’t particularly stupid. He was just dyslexic.

I’ve seen enough of Rick Perry to conclude that he is, indeed, dumb as a box of hammers. When he speaks, I can hear the gears of his brain grinding horribly. (His areas of ignorance have yet to be fully explored. I suspect they’re Texas-sized.)

I think a lot of Republicans are privately alarmed at Perry’s combination of stupidity and swagger and are hoping Chris Christie eventually belly flops into the pool. Just in case Perry ends up drowning.

You can’t have too many right-wing saviors these days.


  1. Why some Republicans and some media knuckleheads talked Perry into running is beyond me. I saw a video, when a Texas reporter asked him a simple question, and all he did was mumble, and talk about something else at the same time. And you can see the people in the audience was getting frustrated with him.
