Yes submitter, you could have, perhaps, but at the end of it all, could you honestly say you had truly lived if you hadn't seen Rick Perry straddling an ear of corn?

Someone should tell Hipster Little Mermaid that Rick stole her glasses.

If you get the chance, I recommend the fascinating improvisational "documentary" of the 2012 Iowa Caucuses.

Janeane From Des Moines. Fascinating insight into the pandering dance of needs and empty promises that happen between candidates and citizens in the Iowa Caucuses and how own really talented improvisational actress can convince all the major press covering the event that she's completely for real.

It manages to reveal a lot of  the charade with earnest concerns (particularly about the economy and state of health care in the U.S.) and without being mean-spirited, which of course somehow managed to piss everyone off a little bit more than if she had gone the winking "look at me everybody I'm being being sardonic" route of shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

Anyway, that's my on-topic plug for today.

Why is everyone talking at the same time?

Lady:  "I said the corn is good this year."
Man:  "What?"
Rick:  "You guy's still got Chi-Chi's up here?"

That poor woman is just trying to eat her lunch (and a delicious looking repast it is, too) and Perry looks like some creepo trying to hit on her.

Wow, he looks old.  Not dignified or intelligent, just sort of old and grumpy and like he screams at clouds about the coloreds moving in and lowering property values.

gadian: Wow, he looks old.  Not dignified or intelligent, just sort of old and grumpy and like he screams at clouds about the coloreds moving in and lowering property values.


I disagree. The choice of a dark shirt with a dark suit is questionable, but the combination of age and those glasses makes him look not only professorial, but tenured. In the absence of any other evidence, I could see this man teaching a late high school or early college course. To be fair, that's what those glasses are supposed to do, make him look smart.

It's not until he speaks, and the most flabbergastingly amazing shiat starts spilling out of his mouth, that you should realize that this man is a wharrgarblista of the highest order. It's not until then that it's appropriate to mock him.

And mock we must.

You would think all politician's handlers would tell them...Rule #1, everything, we mean everything, is a photo op for better or worse. So no eating phallic foods or having a turkey holocaust going on in the background.

Rick's $2 IOWA paper plate political benefit dinner. Sparsely attended but he is on the MOVE man.  He is a child of the 'corn'.  An up and comer from the down and out.  I predict big moves for little Rick.

"So I said to Ruth, 'Your daughter may not want you to tell her how to raise her child, but she needs to be told, cause that boy is on a bad path.'"
"Uh huh."
"See, his father was a no-good that never was, and of course got busted with some meth, then after he got out of jail went to Arizona with some jailhouse buddy of his to get work on an oil rig, on account that they'll hire you down there over Mexicans, even if you've got a record."
"Uh huh."
"And I told Ruth, I told her 'I don't think there's any oil in Arizona, Ruth', but by then he'd already left, and, well, good riddance, you know?"
"Uh huh."
"Apparently there really isn't any oil in Arizona, cause he got busted for meth again like 3 weeks after moving out there, but he's Arizona's problem now. Anyway, like I was telling Ruth, I said 'You need to tell that daughter of yours to put some discipline into that boy, because Janice saw him running around with that Atkins boy out by the old warehouse district, and you know no good will come of that.'"
"Uh huh. Listen, I think my advisers need to talk to me, but it's been really great talking to you, I hope that you'll consider..."
"But then Ruth's daughter isn't any kind of parent herself, in my opinion. You know she gave up dancing out at that place by the airport when Jeff was born, but I heard from Sally that she was out there dancing again. How Sally knew, I couldn't say, but between you and me I think it was probably her husband that found that out, personally, if you know what I mean."
"Uh huh."
"Listen, sonny, you better just leave, cause she's had two cups of coffee and she'll be going on like this until 10:30 if you let her."

While it's fun to laugh at Torg Perry and his Magical Smartifying Glasses I think it's important to remind everyone that this piece of shiat knowingly had an innocent man killed and then prevented the investigation into the surrounding misconduct.

He's an evil piece of shiat, not just a mildly entertaining bucket of tard.

I dunno...  I'm not sure these two will even be around to vote in 2016.  Then again, who else will fall for Rick's politically astute demeanor but the old and confused.
