Gov. Rick Perry
-Headline of the day-
"Texas Gov. Perry hints at possible presidential run."
That's right, Texican president and America's leading secessionist hates the America government so much that he's willing to take the helm -- and, presumably, steer it into the nearest iceberg.
After talking to reporters about the coming 2011 legislative session -- which in Texas lasts about a half hour -- he was asked if he would consider running for president afterward. "Yes Sir," Perry said. "I'm going to think about it."
Well, everyone got their shorts in a bunch, because no one likes the GOP field as it is now, and everyone got to thinking he was definitely going to run. Not so, says Texican Press Minister Mark Miner. Mark says Perry thinks about a lot of things and that those things don't often pan out. Call Rick a dreamer.
"He thinks about a lot of issues," Miner said. "Nothing has changed. The Governor has no intention of running for President."
Still, it might be worth a shot. If Perry can't get Texas to secede from America, maybe he can become President of America and secede from Texas!
That'd work, right? (McClatchy)
-Republicans want us to get naked with Paul Ryan-
Actual quote from Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) on Paul Ryan's Medicare plan: "I said it many times. This is like skinny dipping. Somebody has to be the first one in the pool and it's real lonely when you're the only one in the pool. Paul Ryan is in the pool. We want the rest of the town to come along."
Probably not the best metaphor. (Political Wire)
