Jesus Has a Laugh at GOP Candidates.

because, you know, they're ALL called by God to run.

P.S. Perry tried to say, as you see with Peter Stern's comment, that he didn't exactly mean to say what people thought he said. Right. I was amused by Bud Kennedy of the Star-Telegram's comment on twitter.

Perry, of course, denied he meant this with his response as printed in the Austin Statesman:

"There's a lot of different ways to be called," Perry said Monday after signing a health-care bill at the Capitol. "My mother may call me for dinner. My friends may call me for something. There are people that are calling from all across this country into either me directly or to people that they know and saying, ‘Man, we wish you would consider doing this.' "

A reporter asked whether that meant there were no religious overtones to his suggestion that he was being called.

"Oh, no, no, no, no," Perry said. "I don't ever get confused about that I am a man of faith. I don't make any apologies about my faithfulness. And the fact of the matter is, I think anybody who goes through life without having that foundation of faith, I don't know how they do it. I couldn't. So the idea that, do I look for signs and do I look for good Scripture that tells me how to live my life? Absolutely I do that."

Perry really lives on some other planet than the rest of us.

I guess I should have stated that Perry "sort of" denied it.

He is doing the *dog whistle* thing, same as he did with his secession talk. His explanation of being called is baloney. NO ONE says they are *called* unless they mean it in a religious sense.

I can say I have a calling to be a doctor

I can say that someone asked me or talked to me about running for office.

But when you say *I have been called*, it means someone or something is calling you to do X, and it ain't yo mama for dinner.

Amen to that!  ;)

What  a tool this guy is and yet he has been "successful" in the political arena.  It really doesn't say much for Texans as a whole. 

We need to change that whole "you can win with only 39 percent" thingy when it comes to gubernatorial elections.  Senators and House Reps have run-offs when the winner has less than 50 percent of the total votes.  So should candidates running for governor.
