Gov. Rick Perry and his Superman disguise

Holy crap! Are Tea-Publicans really this gullible and stupid?

Republican pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson told ABC News on Sunday that Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) “hipster glasses” had helped to save his presidential ambitions. Donna Brazile Mocks GOP Pollster Who Thinks ‘Hipster Glasses’ Saved Rick Perry:

RickPerry2Host Jonathan Karl asked Anderson if Rick Perry had any “presidential chances” after a recent grand jury indictment for abuse of power.

“Yes, he does,” Anderson insisted. “As does anyone on his side who throws his hat in the ring. I mean, the polls consistently show all of these guys hovering somewhere between 5 and 10 percent depending on which day it is.”

“I think the second incarnation of Rick Perry — hipster glasses Rick Perry, instead of cowboy Rick Perry — I think is very interesting,” she opined. “And I think he will bring a lot to a presidential field.”

At that point, Democratic strategist Donna Brazile slipped on a pair of reading glasses and peered over them, mocking Anderson.

“The second look is not going to make Rick Perry look any better,” Brazile quipped. “The problem is, you know, that his record is still out there. His record as governor, record on health care, education. He will be judged by that, not by the size of Texas and its electoral votes only.”

Why does this sound so familiar? Oh, now I remember. This is a scene from the TV series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” – Tempus Fugitive (1995):

Lois: If you wanna kill Superman, I don’t know why you’re going to Smallville or 1966.

Tempus: She doesn’t know yet. Oh, this is good. This is really good. Um, Lois, did you know that, in the future, you’re revered at the same level as Superman? Why there are books about you, statues, an interactive game. You’re even a breakfast cereal.

Lois: Really?

Tempus: Yes. But, as much as everybody loves you, there is one question that keeps coming up: “How dumb was she?” Here, I’ll show you what I mean. Look

[puts glasses on]

Tempus: , I’m Clark Kent.

[Takes glasses off]

Tempus: No, I’m Superman.

[Puts glasses on]

Tempus: Mild-mannered reporter.

[Takes glasses off]

Tempus: Superhero. Hello! Duh! Clark Kent is Superman. Ha, ha, ha. Well, that was worth the whole trip. To actually meet the most galactically stupid woman who ever lived.

That’s right Kristen Soltis Anderson, like Lois in this episode, you are “the most galactically stupid woman who ever lived” if you believe that a pair of “hipster glasses” disguise is enough to fool voters into believing that Rick Perry is not the same “oops!” doofus who so badly failed as a candidate in 2012. Show some respect for the intelligence of voters, will you please?

  1. While I wish that voters were not stupid enough to be swayed by a pair of glasses, I think they might be. Let’s see if Huppenthal gets re-elected and then we’ll revisit the issue.

    What gov. perry should be indited for is the wrongful execution cameron willingham and obstruction of justice in removing the investigators looking into a letter from cell mate jackson recanting his testimony that willingham confessed and admitted he made it up. Prosecutors kept letter secret till after execution and perry removed investigators looking into wrongful execution and replaced them with stooges who shut investigation down. Jackson say he has been threatened with prosecution if he now talks!
