I would like, to thank the editors of Red State.org, for inviting me back! It would seeming that my latest column (for which I was paid), has, in the hearts and minds of many people, questions been raising, in the ways that thoughtful pieces sometimes do, after all this time. So you can see that I was grateful that Erick was inviting me back to clear some of them up, although it seems that most of the answers were evident from the piece allready to those who were willing to open their eyes and see the truth.
Firstly in the first place, some people had a question about my very obvious statement, “I don’t necessarily agree that Rick Perry is George Bush on crack, but he could definitely be described as George Bush 2.0.” The question, I have most often, been asked, is why I did not include literally anything in the piece to back up this claim or point out, the places where Perry and Bush are similar, the reason for that being simple. Hello? They are both from Texas. I guess I should apologize for, assuming that most people knew that already, but I guess they don’t. Well I am here to tell you in case you didn’t know: both George W. Bush and Rick Perry are from Texas. Now, in the entire time I have been paying attention to politics, there has only been one President of the United States elected from Texas. And if electing someone, from Texas was a winning strategy, then obviously, there would have been more.
Some ignorant jerk, clearly who doesn’t know about the young people, pointed out that George W. Bush 1.0 won, two elections, which is two more than my dad did. Let me just respond to that jerk by saying that George W. Bush only won those elections because he didn’t have to go against my dad either time. FACE!
Secondly, look, at this ridiculous email I got from, some right-wing extremist:

In your stupid article, you claimed, “I feel like a character in “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” but instead of pointing out that the emperor isn’t wearing any clothes, I am pointing out that this person is in every way unelectable on a national scale.”
Do you have any evidence at all to back up this asinine claim or are you just pulling it out of your [I removed a dirty
word here]? I mean, any polls, any analysis, anything insightful? Anything other than your say so?
Die in a fire you twit.
Apparently, this “mbecker” whoever, he thinks he is, does not know that I used to be a campaign blogger for the most successful campaign that has ever been run (which was even able to overcome the horrible mistake of firing me!) – my dad’s. And also that I wrote a book, which sold dozens and, dozens of copies. Does this “mbecker” have a rich and famous father such that people would publish a book, which he, spent less than 5 hours on? I doubt it.
