That photo could go into the dictionary for TEXAS Smug.

That guy probably one of the primary reasons Texas Republicans, those in office that is, don't give two shiats about immigration "reform" as screamed by those who vote for them.

Nothing of value was lost.

The younger GOP demographic is really starting to die off.

What do you win for being a super donor in Texas? Do you get a death row cell named after you or something?
 
2013-04-15 09:41:07 AM  
I bet even his family won't miss him, they've all been waiting on grandpa to kick it so they can have that extra house in davos.

FTFA -  "Mr. Perry was a wonderful friend to many all around the United States,"

Unless you are one of the many individual entities conspiring against the GOP.
I don't have the list, but I have seen it on Fark and it is EXTENSIVE.

Well, it's certainly sad the man died and best wishes to his family.  Maybe a decrease in funding will allow Dem candidates to make some inroads.
 
2013-04-15 09:50:03 AM  
He was a swift boater.

People like him are the very definition of what is wrong with this country.  It's because of people like him that lying is fine as long as you get your own way.

I wish people like you would stop talking since you do nothing but give liberals a bad name.

Unless his will sets up some kind of a GOP campaign trust managed by some yet to be named evangelical. That would be a real treat.

I will find you.  Somewhere.  Somehow.  Someday.

When you open your door, I will put a beer in your hand.  Then, I will thank you for writing those ten simple words, turn around, and be out of your life forever.

In other words, I lol'd.

Condolences to the departed's family, but I'm afraid I'm always going to remember him as someone who tried his best to make America worse.

It apparently doesn't buy immortality.

His family got their best wish when the old coot died. Now comes the  fun part, where everybody fights over every last penny in the will. It should be a good fight, with everybody swift-boating each other and hitting way below the belt. They learned from the master.
 
2013-04-15 10:11:23 AM  
I bet he wishes he'd have done something different with that money, now. Like invest in research on how to not go "peacefully in your sleep".

Well, I'm sure you were also concerned about the guy who died giving Conservatives a bad name by bankrolling lies...right?
 
2013-04-15 10:16:08 AM  
He died knowing that despite all of his money, Obama is still President.

And what are we supposed to do? Cry for such an evil, evil man?

When Pol Pot died, did you cry for him as well?
 
2013-04-15 10:18:48 AM  
Wonder how much he left in his will to the GOP?
 
2013-04-15 10:20:24 AM  
*pulls out my trusty old soapbox

I wish people thought more about the fact that democracy and capitalism aren't the same thing.  Frequently they get along great together, but there is a direct conflict when it comes to political spending. One man one vote is often overshadowed by one man, billions of dollars to buy ad time and influence the media directly or indirectly by creating think tanks and PACs.

Don't be so generous with those condolences. As we have seen in the cases of GW Bush, Rand Paul, and the Koch FARKING Brothers, the offspring tend to be just as evil if not even worse than their parents.

Today's modern GOP: Spends hundreds of millions of dollars on elections, can't afford a 3% increase in taxes.

You know Steve Perry sang "Oh, Sherry."

Very cool.
 
2013-04-15 10:31:21 AM  
Ah, the Swift Boat scum bag.

Question is; what's going to happen to his money?  His wife/kids big douches as well?
 
2013-04-15 10:31:51 AM  
Hopefully the Koch bros. will be next.
 
2013-04-15 10:36:00 AM  
The guy was 80. His oldest child is probably around 60. The entire Perry family has likely carried on his legacy of shadow-funding lies and treachery. It's the American way. His death didn't cut off the head of a snake. It cut off one head of a hydra.

We don't know that -- some of the family could be sane, thoughtful, compassionate humanitarians for all we know. They have their own karma, they don't inherit their father's.

Although as a liberal I'm ashamed to wish death on anyone.
 
2013-04-15 10:48:16 AM  
Oh right, the guy who smeared Kerry as a coward and a deserter, so that the combat-avoiding AWOL cokehead chickenhawk could get re-elected.

Really gonna miss him.

phaseolus: We don't know that -- some of the family could be sane, thoughtful, compassionate humanitarians for all we know. They have their own karma, they don't inherit their father's.


Unfortunately, the world doesn't work like that. A belief in some kind of cosmic justice is, well, just faith. Madoff's kid committed suicide even though he did nothing wrong. As the Clint Eastwood character said in "Unforgiven": "Deserve's got nothing to do with it."

It is one of the tragedies of being human that we do inherit guilt. We can face that inheritance bravely and try to atone, as the Germans did, or deny it, as Japan and many in the U.S. have.

If they had shown any signs of human DNA you can be damn sure the patriarch would have had it surgically removed (or at least publicly renounced, like the way Alan Keyes dramatically disowned his own daughter for coming out lesbian).

Well, which is more patriotic, defending the skies over Alabama during a time of War, or throwing away the multiple service medals you received while serving in some backwater nation nobody wanted you to go to anyways?
 
2013-04-15 10:54:02 AM  
I'm convinced that, at least on the Presidential level, money doesn't buy elections.  Maybe money can matter a bit at the local level, like for a House seat or for city council or something, but not for President.  The candidate who is better at campaigning, better at the job of "running for President" (different than the one who would be better at actually being President), always wins in the end.  Bush was a better campaigner than Kerry or Gore.  Likewise, Obama was a better campaigner than McCain or Romney.  Clinton was better than Bush Sr. or Dole.  Bush Sr. was better than Dukasis but worse than Clinton.  Reagan was better than Carter or Mondale.  Etc.

I was just thinking that. This guy was just like Pol Pot, for sure.

Sure, he campaigned hard for those 5 Supreme Court justices and Cuyahoga County's elections overseer to win those elections.

In the case of a tie, the "campaign" includes the lawyering and PR and such after election day.  Bush's post-election team was more competent/ruthless than Gore's, IMHO.  Now, maybe that didn't matter considering the 5-4 split in the Supremes.

That's not what I meant -- my point was that we don't 'own' what our fathers do. Bob Perry's kids, if they exist, haven't rightly inherited the scorn we show their father. If they're dickbags, they're dickbags in their own right. If they aren't, then they aren't.

Guess I'm never gonna throw out the word "karma" on Fark again.

Whichever is easier or better for the rich guy.. obviously.
