The Republicans are not satisfied at all with the crop of candidates for President.   The candidates don't have all the proper credentials to hit all the points required to fulfill Republican ideology.   They have Michele Bachmann, charismatic and emphatic lunatic, they have Rick Santorum, emphatic lunatic, and a string of dishonorable adulterers and wishy-washy nothings and nobodies.   They've had to dig down toward the bottom of the barrel to find even these few unacceptable candidates.  


But, if they'll just keep digging, all the way to the bottom of the barrel, they'll find exactly what they're looking for, the savior of the Republican Party -- Rick Perry.


Texas Governor Perry follows in the footsteps of that other Texas governor who became president, George Bush.   Even though George Bush was undoubtedly the very best Republican president, ever, showing the treasured Republican characteristics of ignorance, arrogance, incompetence, religious delusion and utter disregard for the poor, the sick and the elderly, the Republicans never mention him, never bring him up at all to brag about his sterling Republican qualities.  


Could it be that out of understandable hypocrisy, they never mention Bush, because his ten year tax cut binge for the wealthy caused the government to have to borrow $51 billion to pay for the first quarter checks being sent out, and caused an additional $1.35 trillion to be added to the deficit?   All the while, keeping up the hypocrisy, the Republicans are condemning Obama to burn in the fires of hell for wanting, just one time, to raise the debt limit to get the country out of recession, never mentioning that Reagan raised the debt limit 18 times and was praised by the same Republicans for it.


And besides, Bush was too intellectual, too charismatic, too personable for the current Republicans.   Perry is not burdened with any of that.


Perry can do better than that.   He has already beaten Bush in religious delusion.   He's got the American Family Association, designated a hate-group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, to sponsor a "Day of Prayer and Fasting" in Houston, Texas.   Here are some of the people he's thrown in with.


AFA president Tim Wildmon said Jews, Muslims, atheists or any other non-Christian would go to hell unless they accepted Jesus Christ as their savior.


AFA executive Bryan Fischer has blamed gays for the Holocaust and has called on Muslims to convert to Christianity or face the wrath of the U.S. military.   He also said that social welfare programs make black women want to rut like rabbits.
