Strike a Pose, Rick Perry, There’s Nothing To It

Strike a Pose, Rick Perry, There’s Nothing To It May 28, 2015

I find Rick Perry to be very funny. I just wish I were in the meetings with his political advisers when they planned the launch of his second presidential campaign after the disaster that was the 2012 Republican primary, when he turned himself into a punchline in a matter of weeks. I imagine a conversation kinda like this:

Perry: Okay, after last time out half the country thinks I’m an idiot. How do we change that perception?

Advisers: Governor, we think you should start wearing glasses.

Perry: That’s brilliant. Brilliant! No wonder I pay you guys the big bucks. But a lot of people also think I’m just a shallow pretty boy with metrosexual tendencies, which isn’t gonna fly in the Republican party. How can we fix that problem?

Advisers: When we launch your campaign, we’re going to surround you with Navy SEALS.

Rick Perry’s June event in Addison, Texas, where he is expected to announce his candidacy for president, will feature a number of retired and current Navy SEALs, according to a invite to the event. Retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, whose autobiography inspired the 2014 film Lone Survivor, will attend with his wife. The widow of retired Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, whose autobiography inspired the oscar-nominated American Sniper, will also be there.

Yep, that oughta do it. The nomination is all but his now.
