    really. is this the kind of foolishness we can expect to see from the left should Perry run?

    Perry never said that he wants to secede, he stated that his constituents might want to secede. His sin is not saying he was in favor of it. His sin is indulging in the conversation, thereby legitimizing the discussion as opposed to showing responsible leadership by admonishing those suggested such silliness as secession.

    Oh, please. Texas secession is a long-time state joke. Perry's constituents understand the context and the joke.

    Aren't you in Idaho?? Didn't Idaho vote for McCain over Obama in 2008 by an almost 2-to-1 factor? It's not like Obama is going to win Idaho anyway no matter who the GOP candidate is. Besides, what are we talkin' here? 4 electoral votes?? Will any of the candidates even bother campaigning in Idaho??

    G'head, vote for Perry. Doesn't really matter, does it?

    And a hilarious one. Not as hilarious as the Governor, but pretty durned funny!

    Come on, Rick's a secessionist. Everybody knows that. Hell, he's proud of it! Count me among those who hopes the Texas Secessionist movement is successful. If they can take a few other states with them, so much the better.

    I agree. I seriously would not mind if Texas seceded.

    Ahh, it was all just a joke. I see. Like him calling Social Security unconstitutional but now says he wouldn't get rid of it. Now that's a funny joke!

    Yep, and they're still unlikely to be the philosophical PURISTS that I want to see on the bench. Half the cases the SCOTUS hears could be ruled on just by reading the briefs, thus saving us all a lot of time.

    Why, so that they can maintain the centrist-liberal philosophy that is now the heart and core of the Republican Party?

    Who might be?.... the Republicans? I don't think so. They would likely end up having to join their philosophical counterparts in the Democratic Party in order to survive. Besides, who's suggesting that the Tea Party would wait until 2016 to stage the coup necessary to right the wrongs around this country?

    You know someone's crazy when they say the Republican's are a centrist-liberal party. I really wish scientists would hurry up and build a time machine so we could send you home. What century are you from, anyway?
