Because we need...

Yesterday Texas Governor Rick Perry announced that he was running for the GOP nomination for President, which was of little suprise. He shored up the evangelical vote with his big Jesus gala in Houston last week, because for some reason people see no problem exploiting religion for political gain. Oh and they seem to ignore this little passage:

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." - Matthew 6:5-6

So let's try to get into the head of the Perry campaign now shall we? They believe that the best solution to solving the country's issues is electing a Texas governor who never excelled in academics, a leader who cuts taxes on the wealthy and acts shocked when the budget comes near collapse, a person who doesn't believe in global warming nor evolution, an executive who has no problems putting someone to death while praising the value of life, and a man who makes decision based on ideology rather than facts. Yeah, because that worked out so swimmingly the first time we tried that.

Then again some people will take anything besides that socialist Kenyan in the Oval Office who worships Mohammed while he bathes in the tears of bunnies and uses images of Sgt Slaughter as toilet paper.

This is going to be a long election cycle.

"Every life is precious." - Rick Perry
