Texas Governor Rick Perry Hates America

Yes! Rick Perry has proven he hates America by his suggestion that he could consider the option to secede in the future,
but the real proof that he hates America is in the pudding and in his actions and his past record. The sad state of affairs in his beloved state of Texas is shameful and indeed telling.

Attitude Problem

I was born a Democrat. My parents were Democrats before me. My father cast his first vote at 21 in 1936, for FDR. Four years later, when she turned 21, my mother did the same. She came from a long line of Democrats, going way back to Jackson, I suppose.

Michele And Marcus Bachmann, The Iowa State Fair, And A Foot Long Corn Dog

Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus spent Friday at the Iowa State fair, looking for support and sharing a foot long corn dog. Many people already believe that Marcus ‘pray-away-the-gay’ Bachmann himself is one of the people he has tried to save through his alleged homosexual repression therapy, and eating a foot long corndog at the state fair doesn’t do much to help the ‘straight’ image I’m sure he hopes to maintain.
