Quote of the Day: Another Genius from Texas Speaks Out (With a Threat)

Rick Perry: Another Texas diplomat?
With the current field of Republican presidential candidates, the Quote of the Day is difficult to narrow. They say such stupid, arrogant, outrageous things with such regularity that picking through for the right quote is difficult.

So let's start today with presidential candidate newbie Rick Perry of the state that gave us two Bushes--two of them--among presidents elected and appointed. Perry seems to be carrying on the tradition of confrontation, accusation, challenge and threatened violence. Not much diplomacy in the Lone Stupid State. Here's what Perry had to say yesterday about Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's (he called Bernanke "treasonous") suggestion that printing more money might be an alternative to going broke (thanks to a string of Republican decisions, beginning with one of the Bushes):

If Bernanke "prints more money between now and the election, I don't know what y'all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas."

"Treat him pretty ugly in Texas," indeed. Is that supposed to make Perry sound like a Renaissance Man?

  1. It just baffles me how the Republican candidates are cowering to such a small majority of people. i.e Tea Party

  2. Phil: The Democrats are cowering to the same small minority. There is such chickenshit in our Congress.
