South Rides Again

Which Generals will lead the rebirth of the Republican party? Jeb Bush ditched his sword and horse for high paying corporate positions. That leaves Texas Governor Rick Perry. He spoke of secession at Austin's Tea Party. Forget the Boston Harbor irony. The Dallas Morning News reported:

Gov. Rick Perry told an anti-tax "tea party" Wednesday the federal government is "rampaging through the halls of Congress" with big-spending programs and only states' rights can stop it.

Perry told reporters following his speech that Texans might get so frustrated with the government they would want to secede from the union.

"There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that."

Perry dismissed characterizations that those attending Wednesday's "tea party" rallies in Texas and around the country are "a bunch of right-wing extremists." "But if you are, I'm with you," he said.

Self admitted right wing extremist calling for secession? It seems Rick has a revolution to lead, or a primary to win. When will the government tap Perry's phone and root through his e-mails? They clearly have probable cause.

General Perry is ready to ride north from Austin. If Rick's hunting communists, he may want to empty a Tom Green County jail cell. Who knew taxes at the rate of President Ronald Reagan qualified as Marxist? Tea party organizers qualify as Machiavellian manipulators.

The blue team is almost as bad, modernizing things in a huge corporafornication bonanza. But I already did that post! A pox on the red and blue houses, full of greedership and bleedership. Substitute leadership.
