Recently, at a well-secured remote ranch outside of Austin Texas in temperatures above 105 degrees – where silverfish and other insects thrive – Rick Perry pledged to America’s leading evangelical leaders that, if elected President, he would work to deny women the right to any kind of abortion, which means even in cases where a father rapes a daughter, and he would fight the good fight to keep the gay community from having the right to marry, or, for that matter, any other rights. Among the cheering crowd of some 200 mouth breathers were many luminaries of the Christian right, including Focus on the Family founder James C. Dobson, Tony Perkins of The Family Research Council, and Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, as well as dozens of young people from around the country including many African Americans and Latinos – proving yet again that tiny minded bigotry and sheer breathtaking stupidity knows no color or ethnicity. As far as all these attendees were concerned the only stain on Perry’s 10 year record as Governor of Texas was his attempt in 2007 to require sixth grade girls to be inoculated against the human papillomavirus, a cause of cervical cancer. Perry now says that such an effort was a mistake.
Said one masked attendee, (who refused to give his name), “the onliest thing that would have made this a more perfecter day is if’n my new white sheet wasn’t in the laundry.”
Author’s note: In no way is it my intent to demean Silverfish, or any other insects by this comparison.
