This is pathetic:

The friendly crowd at Clem Mikeska’s Bar-B-Q in Temple (across the street from Rylander’s Best Hamburgers, if you’re looking for political omens) ate it up. Standing on a chair under a mounted set of Texas Longhorns, Perry steered his listeners through subject matter that wasn’t a regular feature in his earlier campaigns: gubernatorial and legislative races in other parts of the U.S. “We’ve got good candidates all over the country,” he said. Perry talked his way through New Mexico, Oregon, South Carolina and Nevada with a little detail from each. Regarding Nevada, for instance, he told the crowd he’s for Brian Sandoval, who’s running for governor against Rory Reid, the son of U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. “If you’ve got a little extra money, send it to Nevada,” Perry said. “It’s a two-fer.”

That prompted a question, later on, from someone in the audience who wanted to know if the governor of Texas wants to be the next president of the United States. “No,” Perry said. “I have no intention to go to Washington, D.C., except maybe to go to a museum, like the Smithsonian.”

Social issues might be in the back seat, but they’re still in the car: “There is still a land of opportunity, friends — it’s called Texas,” Perry said. “We’re creating more jobs than any other state in the nation. … Would you rather live in a state like this, or in a state where a man can marry a man?”

Is the average Texan Rick Perry supporter stupid enough to think there is a negative correlation between marriage equality and job growth?

Excuse me, dumb question, sorry I asked.

Let’s watch the South Park video again.

Derka derbs!
