Wonder what it might be like to live in the USA if Perry beat snowball in Hell odds and was elected President?
He’d have an all-male cabinet along with some right-wing nut like Bill O’Reilly as vice president, a pharmaceutical lobbyist for chief of staff and a hairstylist on call 24/7. Government contracts awarded to the biggest campaign contributors.
Healthcare would be provided via WebMD.
Perry stated abstinence works. He could prohibit birth control devices with an executive order. When black-market contraceptives failed women could give birth at the local fire station.
After being vaccinated for HPV teenage females would undergo a sonogram to ensure it had been done.
Perry’s own poor academic record was the basis for assigning a low priority to education in Texas.
Public education would cease in the sixth grade with textbook material approval by Pres. Perry. As a result of a lack of support for education, low-wage jobs would be the norm.
As a standard pre-employment test the ability to articulate “would you like fries with that,” ensures unemployment falls to an acceptable level. Failing that, a career as a tent revival preacher might prevent homelessness.
National parks without funding would evaporate into ghost towns. US borders would close to international travelers and Americans would be required to pack heat and wear cowboy boots. Fox network would be the only source of national and world news.
The Urban Dictionary states, “labeling someone a turd in the punch bowl is most appropriate when the individual’s deleterious influence goes beyond mere faux pas or nuisance behaviors and rises to the level of deliberate offense for its own sake.”
Based on his leadership as Governor, Perry has satisfied the first requirement of the aforementioned label and requires only the punchbowl.
