Rick Perry is talking again. And he’s saying stupid shit… again.
From Kevin Drum:
From Rick Perry, after John Harwood of the New York Times notes that his tax plan will mean huge tax cuts for the rich in an era of already skyrocketing income inequality:
But I don’t care about that.
I suppose there’s something oddly refreshing about that response. There’s also this:
Q. Why did you choose to keep the birther issue alive?
A. It’s a good issue to keep alive. You know, Donald [Trump] has got to have some fun. It’s fun to poke him a little bit and say “Hey, let’s see your grades and your birth certificate.” I don’t have a clue about where the president — and what this birth certificate says. But it’s also a great distraction. I’m not distracted by it.
Yes, the birther issue is just a spot of fun!***
Sure, Rick Perry. It’s a good issue to keep alive in order to pander to your idiotic racist-ass base who are, by the way, too stupid to care that you just said YOU DON’T CARE THAT THEY ARE POOR.
For the love of —
