It’s my last few days at La Muse, and I should be focused on my novel. But this morning I read a piece by Dana Milbank on Rick Perry. Milbank portrays Perry as a religious bigot hell bent on establishing a Christian theocracy if he is elected. And it won’t be one of those nice, reasonable Unitarian versions of Christianity, either. Sound overly alarmist? Read Perry’s words.
We had one of those debates the other night that liberals and leftists have among themselves when election time approaches. Resolved, it’s not worth voting because there’s no difference between Republicans and Democrats, and, anyway, Wall Street money controls the process.
Take a long look at Rick Perry and a Republican Party that gives a guy like that a shot at the nomination, and you will be able to hold your nose and vote for the Democrats.
