The Day Rick Perry’s Brains Fell Out

Mark today as the day when Rick Perry’s brain fell out. Thank goodness it was just a small splat.

Let’s start with Rick’s refusal to disavow Cliven Bundy’s racist statement and then move quickly to this:

“What we have in the state of Texas … the federal government is coming in and attempting from our perspective to take over private property,” he continued.

Perry had previously made remarks critical of the armed federal presence during the Bundy Ranch standoff over cattle grazing. “I have a problem with the federal government putting citizens in the position of having to feel like they have to use force to deal with their own government,” he said Wednesday on Fox News.

So, Rick is all hissy fitting over the government wanting to take land. Uh huh.

Does he think we’ve forgotten about the Trans Texas Corridor, that 580,000 acre land grab by Perry to sell to Spain for them to pour concrete on?

About 250 farmers and ranchers held a rally Tuesday at the state Capitol to protest Gov. Rick Perry’s Trans Texas Corridor plan, which critics say will gobble up the property of rural landowners.

Republican Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn joined the demonstrators and called Perry’s associates “land-grabbing highway henchmen.”

That was in May of 2005. How quickly we/he forgets.The government taking property, my patootie.
