So this (from Gail Collins’ profile of Rick Perry in today’s NYT) tells you everything you need to know about Perry: When he was running for Agriculture Commissioner of Texas, his platform was to get rid of a rule imposed by the Democratic incumbent that made farmers remove their workers from the fields prior to spraying pesticides on them.
I think you can see where I’m going with this. If Perry becomes president, Wall Street and big business will be the farmers, and we’ll be the workers getting sprayed with toxic stuff. Don’t spray me, Bro!
Snake oil salesman. Perry is, Perry was, Perry always will be.
He can’t win. He won’t win. He’s living in the Garden of Eden with the snake.
Thanks for the great image, not just of Perry but of much of the contemporary GOP. I linked to your post and discussed it on in a post on my blog:
Thanks for your kind words and the recommendation. I’m fairly new here. I tried to post a comment on your post, not sure if it went through.
I am pretty new too, and I have hardly any readers, (though more than I would typically get from my day job) but I continue to have fun posting about what strikes me as true and relevant.
It looks like your comment didn’t go through, though I try to set the commenting settings so that it is easier rather than harder than post. I hope you will try again. .
I tried to make my comment twice, and it kept saying, “Post Comment.” I have no clue what I did wrong. I am not the most computer savvy person in the world. I had good traffic today, and I think it’s thanks to you.
I got a comment to go through, but only as Anonymous, not as Embattled Farmers. We like the same blogs. I’m a huge fan of Andrew Sullivan. You would like Immoral Minority, an anti-Palin blog out of Alaska.
I’m going to read all your posts. What I’ve read so far is very good.
