Jim Hightower at the Fighting Bob Fest: “Rick Perry Puts the Goober Back in Goobernatorial”

Here’s a nearly hot-off-the-podium barnburner by Jim Hightower, delivered at the Fighting Bob Fest in Wisconsin about an hour ago.

Hightower is a disturbance in the force. Among his gems:

“Rick Perry is Michelle Bachmann with better hair.”

“He’s George Bush, without the intellect.”

“Perry is a climate-change denier. Hello? His state is on fire!”

“Battling the bastards is just about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on.”

    Any of the Republicans on the stage will be a better President than the one we have now. Jimmy Cater even looks good in comparison to O.

    Thanks for your comment.

    I’m sure it won’t surprise you to hear that I respectfully disagree.

    I have a lot of disappointment with Obama, but probably for different reasons than you do.

    I want him — when he talks left-wing — to walk that talk!



  3. Todd Juvinall says:

    He is a big disappointment to the extreme left because he has sold them out. He sold out the CBC as well. I hope he continues his sellouts because we will see a lack of attendance at the polls by them all.

    I agree with you although, since I voted for him in 2007, I’d prefer that he started keeping his campaign promises. But frankly, I’ll be surprised if he does. And, yes, he may be defeated on account of that.
