Texans Gone Wild!

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Texas Gov. Rick Perry has gone completely ape-shit crazy?

Speaking at a luncheon for a Midland County Republican Women’s group, Perry said that “this is an administration hell-bent toward taking American towards a socialist country. And we all don’t need to be afraid to say that because that’s what it is.”

What the fuck??? I mean, I can understand entertainers like Glenn Beck spewing this hyperbolic nonsense. But a Governor? Really?

Is this some sign that Perry suffers from some type of mental illness? I mean, remember earlier in the year when he was babbling about Texas seceding from the U.S.?

Later, answering news reporters’ questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union, though he said he sees no reason why Texas should do that.

That shit’s crazy! (Apparently he misunderstood that Texas reserved the right to negotiate being subdivided into four smaller states, not the right to secede.)

Haven’t we had enough of mentally ill religious extremist sociopaths causing damage in Texas?

    Texas, the National Laboratory for Bad Government, as Molly Ivins used to say. Perry is no crazier than, well, a lot of other people–you can read similar sentiments all over right wing blogs. But he’s governor of a rich and populous state.

    Try long been. It’s a prerequisite for Texas Republicans. I mean … John Cornyn, Ron Paul, “Judge” Louie Gohmert, Ted Poe, Jeb Hensarling. And that’s just sitting federal elected officials, omitting the ilk of Tom DeLay, Dick Armey, and of course Dubya.

    Off-topic, how does one differentiate between bat-shit and ape-shit when assessing craziness? Actually, I thought ape-shit was used more as a term for wild, possibly irrational, anger rather than craziness.

    Funny you should mention this. I originally had “bat-shit crazy”, but I changed it to “ape-shit crazy” because it has more of a sense of recklessness about it. Perry’s rhetoric have taken on a recklessness that belittles his office and his state.

    Or maybe he is just “mad as a hatter”, that is, suffering from some type of heavy metal poisoning as a result of “free market” environmental standards in Texas….
