If you look in the dictionary under hypocrisy, you’ll find a picture of…

governor-rick-perry2

hypocrisy- [hi-pok-ruh-see]

–noun, plural -sies.

1. a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.

Great article in Washington Monthly here.  Essentially (because I know you won’t click on the link…), Rick Perry is threatening secession from the union because he feels the government is being oppressive by offering bailout money to the state.  However, he didn’t feel they were being oppresive when:

1) He called on FEMA earlier in the week, to help with the wildfires.

2) Called for 1000 troops to help patrol the border last month.

3) Requested an 18 month extension of Federal aid to assist in Hurricane Ike debris removal.

Clearly, he doesn’t really want to secede (I almost wrote succeed.).  It’s a political stunt ala Chindl, to get publicity and test the waters for a run at the Presidency.  But it doesn’t mean we can’t make fun of him and point out the idiocy of yet another Texas governor.  I say he’s the nominee in the next election, loses, runs for governor again and….loses.

Happy weekend.  Interviews with Bullet Treatment and many more next week.
