Rick Perry: Dazed and Confused


Rick Perry must certainly be dazed and confused shortly after he tried to mount a campaign from the right of Attila the Hun.

Two weeks ago he started getting major heat about being soft on Hispanics when it was discovered that he, with all but four members of the Texas legislature, had agreed to not discriminate on college tuition for illegal aliens [Read Hispanics].

[I know that some of you are saying that this not about race but only about “illegals”.  Notwithstanding, I have this nagging thought that we would not  be hearing the same GOP hue and cry if it was millions of English-speaking Canadians sneaking across the border.]

The notion that Perry was a wimp on this core Republican issue started a precipitous decline in his campaign for the White House.

This week he is once again taking heat.  Now it’s coming from the other direction. It seems that his family owns a piece of property that was once locally known as “Niggerhead.” Perry and his family insist that long ago they had changed the name to “North Camp Pasture”. Others dispute the timing.

In a less enlightened era the term “niggerhead” was commonly applied to anything that someone imagined resembled black folks. Rock and coral reefs formations were commonly referred to by this term.

The Aughenbaugh Canning Company, not surprisingly of Biloxi, Mississippi, sold black oysters as “Niggerhead. Oysters”. A 1950’s outcry forced them to change the name. Bowing to Political Correctness, they chose “Negro Head Brand Oysters”.  

Alas, I digress.

The best I can figure out is that if you are running for the GOP nomination you can’t be tough enough on Hispanics. With Blacks it ain’t so clear.

It was not that long ago that DINO George Wallace, after losing a 1958 race for Alabama governor, vowed that, when he ran again in 1962, he would “not be out niggered”. But these days, especially with crazy Herman Cain up there on the platform, you have to soft peddle all that “nigger’ stuff.

You can’t blame poor Rick. Being from the Old South he just didn’t anticipate how those “politically correct” types would try to make a big deal out of what is nothing more than the vernacular of “good ole boy” White Southern Culture.

Under the circumstances, there’s only one thing a son of The Old South to do.

Turn On The Stereo and Crank Up Hank Williams Jr. 

 “Are you ready for some cross burnin’?”

And speaking of Bocephus, he is a bit upset that ESPN fired him for saying it is fair to compare President Obama to Hitler: “By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech.”

Since the law is clear that the First Amendment only protects us from government, I think we are all grateful to Hank, a high school dropout, for letting us know that ESPN is a secret government agency.

    Is Broward Commissioner Chip LaMarca still endorsing Governor Rick Perry of Texas? We haven’t heard from Team Chip lately.

    As a card carrying Socialist, I guess I am so far out in left field to think that “education for all” is a human right.

  3. Le-Philosophe says:

    A hem… Sam this Bruhaha about the racist name on a piece of property is not nearly as significant as the Southern Baptist convention calling the Morman church a “cult” and that fact being repeated to exalt Perry over “cult” member, Mitt Romney, by the pastor at First Baptist of Dallas.

    Really, who cares what a bunch of religious zealots think or for that matter what the name of a piece of property in Texas might be?

    Typical Fields inflammatory crap.

    Sam, Hank Williams Jr. is your typical patriotic republican war loving draft dodger. They have their flags wrapped around themselves so tight ,its cut off the oxygen to their brains

  6. Music City says:

    Hank Williams Jr. is a child of privilege and riches just came to him, having been born the son of a super famous singer. He grew up in the Deep South and obviously never got over those attitudes. The idea that he sang the theme song for a sport where a majority of the players are African American was always a disgrace.Football and his type of Southern-Confederate flag waving-tobacco chewing racism are not synonymous, although the TV chiefs in NY don’t realize it. I for one am glad that this redneck is gone back in his hole.

  7. Chip OffDaMarca says:

    No truth to rumors that my public endorsement is the political kiss of death. Just ask Tory Alston. He rules the school board. When Rick Perry is president everyone in Broward gets an appointment. It’s good to be the king(maker)!

    Doesn’t Rick Perry’s campaign seem like it is on Texas Death Row, just waitin for the switch to be pulled to end it with no last meal?

  9. Fake Chip Lamarca says:

    I wouldn’t count my man Rick out so soon. There are more debates due in the next two weeks and Rick is studin’ hard. He’s doing real book learning. Gosh darnit, Rick has found out just studin’ on the Holy Book is not enough.

    I offered to help, but you know those big words like A-f-g-h-a-n-i-s-t-a-n and E-c-o-n-o-m-i-c-s are puzzlin’. So I suggested Rick and I get together for some shootin’ at Niggerhead. Now that’s sumpin’ I understand.

    Hey, Rick, can I be ambassador to Atlantis. Don’t tell me it’s a fairy tale. I see those ads for it in the nuzpaper.

    I think I got it figured out. If you believe that the Earth is only 6,000 years old, then you have so much less history, science and quantum physics to study. This means less class time and a pretty big savings in paying pesky teachers if I got my gozintas right. There really is a Texas Miracle. Health care is done by charity and volunteer fire house spaghetti dinners. Who needs a fire house if we have prisoners as firefighters since they sleep in the privately run prisons? There is no minimum wage in Heaven and therefore Jesus is against it here on Earth.

    Our founding Fathers knew this 500 years ago, way back in the 16th Century when they fought the revolution
