|Rick Perry - Ready to Lead|
Which is why this certifiable loony Rick Perry is such a wonderful choice for them to run for president. Because the tea party loves this guy. As Cole puts it:
He’s the right kind of ignorant, bigoted, religious nut that will attract the religious fanatics, he’s a gun loving cheerleader who speaks the secessionist code and the teabaggers will love him, he’ll talk constantly about deregulation and lower taxes and the money will be on board . . .You need to fire me from the ranks of anybody qualified to make observations on politics in this country if the voters decide next year that what's needed is some Tea Party nut in the White House. I don't think those people have any pull except in the Republican party, which is completely in thrall to these idiots.
