Before we get into the Texan Mind - we have to see how "in disarray" The republican party is. Finally, after getting a "D" in economics at college we find him with good hair and good looks as the Governor of Texas - What a fucking idiot!
If you are not a native Texan. You'll have a hard time understanding anything coming out of Texas. Here is a man who aims a pistol at his balls, takes a shot and misses, picks up a more powerful pistol and, tries again and misses...Come on Rick...Pick up the double barrel shotgun, take a good look down the barrel - can you see light, yes - put your big toe on the triggers while you load both barrels - keep looking down the barrels - can you see him laughing, nary a hair out of place - lean forward and catch your balance with your toes... Yes, that's right Rick.
