The Ballad of Rick Perry (With apologies to Cain, Bachmann, Ryan, Santorum, Cantor, et al

Rick Perry - Cartoon

Hey Ricky – does it trouble you

You’re twice as dumb as W?

Your “brain” can barely grasp Game Boy by Sega

But brains is not your “thing” because

Half your head is filled with gauze

You’ve got the IQ of a rutabaga

We love the things that make you fun

Like jogging with a loaded gun

A Ruger that I think is made in Munich

But roads are filled with tricky ruts

One day you’ll shoot off Ricky’s nuts

Like Ralph Reed you’ll be one more cutesy eunuch

 

Oh Ricky –

You don’t think that we need healthcare

Oh Ricky –

To your “mind” it’s just like welfare

Oh Ricky –

You’re a Medicare apostate

I hope you –

Sure can finger your own prostate

 

Now you say you’ve “stepped in it”

But I’d say you’re adept in it

I think the Texas weather’s fried your neurons

Debating’s not your thing so far

It shows how uninformed you are

You’d be my choice to do a “dumb” brochure on

Boy, I hope you run my man

You’ll melt down when shit hits the fan

And You Tube will be there in spades to viddy it

If you should run and somehow win

Austin’ll lose to Washington

One perfectly good spaced-out village idiot

  1. You are so good at these, Tony! And I agree with the others. Do you know anyone who can rap and wants some exposure? They could do all the work for the You Tube vids as long as you get credit for the writing. Just a thought…

  2. Hysterical. It’s good to laugh or I might cry to think that this could be the guy. Oy vey please help us god, don’t let us suffer this clown clod. Hey Tony, it’s infectious. Love this post you wrote my friend and I would hope that of Rick Perry it would be the end. But then it’s good to laugh a lot and so for that we’ll suffer the blot. Well I’m just not as good at it as you are but you serve as inspiration. Keep doing it.

  4. Hahahahaha, your lyrical skills are simply amazing. I have to agree with Dee as well, but yes, I respect your decision to kick back as well. But boy would this catch on, big time.

    You are one seriously funny individual.

  5. I totally understand your desire not to expend the energy required to make a video of this, but I could just see you doing it as I read it! It would be amazing and take off like wildfire right now. Sorry to be a nudge. I do respect your desire to kick back a bit. However, you’re so good at kickin’ ass and God knows, he is one big ass on the scene right now…

  6. I agree with Dee!

    I never thought that anyone would make former President Bush (the 2nd) look like a serious man. And there’s Perry.

    Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations. Texans should be ashamed that this guy passes for a leader. I realize Texas considers itself separate from the rest of the south, but Perry is exactly the dim-bulb, buffoonish, yeeeehaw Southern guy they insist they aren’t.

  7. I think this could really catch on. You could do it . . . just make a vid for YouTube. You’ve got the chops. Could go viral. Please!
