It worked for PT Barnum, and Texas Governor Rick Perry is hoping it will work for him, too. Specifically, he's been the driving force behind a Christian revival scheduled for Houston's Reliant Stadium in August. This is the same Rick Perry who DEFINITELY WILL NOT run for president....oh, wait, probably won't run for president....OK, he'll now consider running for president.
I've never seen a more blatant, shameless, fishing-for-votes ploy. If he can pack the place and get 'em to crying like babies, then he'll be the darling of the evangelical right. And he'll ride that pony all the way to the primaries next spring.
Lemme fill you in on Governor Rick Perry: He's a SNAKE! He'll kiss your baby, steal your wallet, and feel up your wife at the same time, all while smiling and telling you what you want to hear. He's been governor for the past 11 years, with 4 more on the way, only because Texas is a heavily Republican state. Heck, that Weiner fella from NY could be elected governor of Texas if he'd put a "R" beside his name.
Now I'm all for Christians. I are one. But I wouldn't go to that revival for fear of being struck by lightning. Or having my wife felt up. (He's already picked my pocket.)
Trust me...find someone else to vote for.
