The Obligatory *RICK PERRY IS TEH SUKS* Post!

Alright, fine: I'll make like the rest of the internet and chomp down on this obvious chunk of troll bait.  Having failed miserably when trying to address actual issues, there was nothing left for Perry to do in order to perpetuate the media saturation of his name than to go completely over the top.  Hence, this gratingly obvious exercise in provocation.  I'm not even going to bother to dissect it; suffice to say, the utter doggerel contained in the video should be as revolting to intelligent conservatives as it is repulsive to, erm, liberals on the attack.  It's pure third-grade playground "oh yeah, well your mama's so fat..." style button-pushing, and should be eschewed by full-grown adults of any political persuasion as such.

Didn't your parents ever tell you to ignore a bully and they'll just go away?  Yeah, mine did too, and obviously I'm still not taking that advice given that I, just like the rest of the easily offended/riled world, am giving Perry exactly what he wants: attention.  Point well taken, then: guess it's time to go back to blogging about Christmas...that is, if there's anything left to say about it now that I've learned that children are no longer allowed to celebrate it.
