Perry’s Peak

If this video were a parody, it would be brilliant. Unfortunately, I don’t think it is.

Anyway — Perry has dropped from first to second place in the most recent Fox News poll. The most recent CNN poll still has him on top, although he’s lost a couple of points.

But the anti-Latino faction of the Right is zeroing in on Perry now, and I think this kind of thing could kill his candidacy — the probably psychotic Tom Tancredo writes in the Daily Caller,

Or Perry’s poor showing in the Florida straw poll might have something to do with a recent report about the highly touted “Texas jobs created by Perry’s pro-growth policies.” The Center for Immigration Studies has discovered that 81% of the 279,000 jobs created in Texas from 2007 to 2011 went to non-citizens, a high number of them illegal aliens.

What is not yet as widely known about Perry is that he extends his taxpayer-funded compassion not only to illegal aliens but also to Muslim groups seeking to whitewash the violent history of that religion. Perry endorsed and facilitated the adoption in Texas public schools of a pro-Muslim curriculum unit developed by Muslim clerics in Pakistan.

Perry’s connections to Muslim groups in Texas are well documented. A recent Christian Science Monitor story said, “Perry has attended a number of Ismaili events in Texas, brokered a few agreements between the state and Ismailis (including the legislation introducing Islamic curricula into Texas schools), and even laid the first brick at the groundbreaking ceremony for an Ismaili worship center in Plano in 2005.”

That last bit is being picked up and repeated by what appear to be hundreds of rightie blogs today. None I have seen, including Tancredo’s piece, links to the Christian Science Monitor, and I have done searches on CSM and cannot find that bolded quote, so I suspect it’s a fabrication. And as scornful as I am about Perry’s jobs claims, even I seriously doubt that 81 percent of Texas jobs went to non-citizens.

Like I said, Tancredo could be psychotic. However, if this catches on among the baggers, Perry is toast.

  1. If it was parody, it was brilliant, if not – ‘Fat, drunk, and stupid, is no way to go through life, Ladies.”

    Tancredo sure is a real manly-man Murkan who rightiously, in a totally Christian way, hates him some Messicans.
    One wonders, ‘Why the hate?’
    He must have been dropped on his head by Juanita, his Mexican nanny, when he was a child. Either that, or someone loaded up the pinata with scorpions right before it was his turn.

    How do you say “psychotic” in Spanish?

    And if even more than 1% of the jobs went to recent immigrants, legal or not, it’ll be used against Perry. That, and his having a ‘heart’ when it came to in-state tuition for their kids, will doom him.
    I guess the Republican standard unit of measurement when it comes to heart’s is that it had better be smaller than the Grinch’s – which was already two sizes too small.
    Anything larger than that makes you a Marxist/Leninst/Kenyan Santa Claus in the Hood, Robin money from the white, rich, and deserving, and giving it to the lazy shiftless brown people.

    Viva La Capitalism Blanco!!!

  2. That was visually stunning and as for the music, well iffin’ I had some spare chop sticks……
    “Gulag, “el Loco” is Spanish ( or Messican) for psychotic ( I’m thinkin’)

  3. I never realized the Perry campaign would raise such difficult moral problems for me.

    I mean, is it wrong to feel such powerful Schadenfreude? Is Tancredo evil, as I’d previously thought, or merely insane, in which case I might be less tarnished by the fact that I am thrilled by his attacks on Perry, whether factual or not? Am I a bad person for being amused at seeing the same insane rabid nonsense that Tancredo has spewed against the forces of good being deployed against Perry, a force of evil?

    I am going to have to ponder these questions. Still, the idea that Rick Perry’s campaign is imploding helps me sleep better at night.

    (Though that video may give me nightmares. That’s just pathetic.)

  4. I mean, is it wrong to feel such powerful Schadenfreude?

    No, not at all. Watching the Repugs slime one another is good medicine for the soul. As a matter of fact todays Onion parody on Congressional hostage taking prompted me to trip down memory lane and review Hustler magazines parody on Jerry Falwell. And I came away with a delightful feeling knowing that that homophobic pig is dead. It’s a shame he couldn’t have died sooner!

  5. “So start campaigning and stop ‘camplaining.”’

    “It’s pretty hard to top that” – Goatherd, I thought I heard that, thanks for saving me another listen.

    I was impressed with how they laid on top of the howitzer, did they say election or erection? I’m not going to risk another rewind.

    I’m not sure any other president in ever has had to endure the lack of respect that president Obama has. His opponents so despise him that they are willing to put this crop of mental midgets (the GOP field as of today) on stage. You’d think they’d at least have the decency to run someone with a slice a brain. Isn’t there one semi coherent republicant that they could run? Everyday the MSM report how Obama is so weak, economy sucks so bad, another half baked scandal, he’ doesn’t stand a chance, why can’t the GOP come with someone that isn’t right out of a cartoon. It puzzles me?
