I'm proud of Republican voters

Have to say, I was pretty sure you GOP voters were going to embrace Rick Perry. He seemed to have what  all the qualities the Rush Limbaugh-influenced electorate value most: 
  • A presidential demeanor
  • A firm contempt for science
  • Raw, unreflective Christian values
  • A gift for making dumb remarks
  • An inability to hold his own with smart people 
  • A habit of saying pointless, yet powerful-sounding things about our relationship with Israel
Like Bush, who also personified those qualities,  Perry was "the sort of guy you'd like to have a beer with". I'm glad Right Wing voters finally seem to realize there is more to leadership.
