Rick Perry As Energy Secretary. No, Really.

He will lead the department he wanted to eliminate. Same as the rest.

Gotta hand it to Brianna Keillar in this quick CNN clip: "Rick Perry as Energy Secretary. Was 'Secretary of Irony' taken?"

Juanita Jean says what needs to be said: "Stupid as Manure Rick Perry Tapped as Energy Secretary"

Former Governor for Life and seriously devoted dumbass, Rick Perry, has been named by Cheeto Jesus as Energy Secretary. That’s right, sports fans, Rootin’ Tootin Rick has your energy future in his hands. We’ve clearly fallen down the Rabbit Hole to Teabaggin’ Screwball Hell. If it wasn’t true, it would be a great fantasy novel.

Jesus save us.

Hey, I'm sure he can do for the Department of Energy what he did for Texas.

That's the problem.
