Texas Governor Rick Perry Joins Presidential Race

Texas governor Rick “I-Have-A-Terrific-Haircut” Perry joins the race for the Republican nomination. Another conservative Christian candidate? What’s the difference between him and Michele Bachmann, aside from genitalia and Bachmann’s crazy-eyes? Arlette Saenz reports on ABC News:

After months of speculation and prodding by Republicans, Texas Governor Rick Perry has officially entered the 2012 race. His spokesman, Mark Miner confirmed that Perry is running for president.

Perry will deliver a speech at the RedState.com Gathering in Charleston, S.C. Saturday. The speech was originally billed as an address that would make clear his intentions regarding a run for the presidency, but now it has turned official.

The Texas Governor will swing through three key early states – South Carolina, New Hampshire and Iowa – this weekend. Following his speech in Charleston, he will meet with S.C. Republican officials before heading to a house party in Greenland, New Hampshire where he will meet with Granite State voters.

Sunday, he will speak at the Black Hawk GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner Fundraiser in Waterloo, Iowa. Earlier today, Michele Bachmann, who was born in Waterloo, announced she will also speak at the dinner. Perry, the longest serving governor in the country, has never lost a race during his nearly three decades in public office.

    Can we please put a moratorium on idiots from texas running for the Presidency? Every one of them has monumentally sucked in one way or another. I just think the Texas character and the White House do not a good mix make.

      Amen dude…Texas has done enough damage to the US and the world already…shit…I’m pretty sure terrorists sit huddled in caves and whisper about Texas in awe…”Damn…I wish we could fuck America up even half as much as those assholes do…that would be so sweet!”

        No big deal. I have it on good authority that the Dems are planning on entering a sleeper agent into the republican primary who will be completely irresistible to their base:

    You know your’re free to try and prove me wrong but, I don’t think that Perry is remotely respectable or has accomplished anything at all worthwhile. If anything, he is trying to make himself un-respectable. Trying to be as loud and stupid as he possibly can.

    Again, I must ask: what’s the difference between him and Bachmann besides a dangly bit of flesh and crazy eyes?  Do their views differ at all?  I mean, he’s a man, so that already one-ups him in the eyes of the Republican party, and if he’s even slightly less crazy he’s basically eclipsing her.

      No kidding. It’s sad when you’re thinking that Romney looks good compared to all his challengers… then again, maybe that’s the whole plan. He looks fairly sane when held up against these two.
