Will the whining by these whiny waaaaaambulance-chasing Republican’ts never cease? First, we had megalomaniac Newt Gingrich comparing his failure to get on the Virginia Republican primary ballot as analogous to the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor (Tora! Tora! Tora! Incoming from the pissed-off Newt-ster at 12 o’clock!). Now, we’ve got the Missing Village Idiot joining the fray:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry filed a lawsuit today in the Eastern District of Virginia challenging the validity of a state statute that keeps him from appearing on the primary ballot, a news release from his campaign said.
Perry’s Complaint for Declarative and Injunctive Relief names three members of the Virginia State Board of Elections, plus Republican Party of Virginia Chair Pat Mullins as defendants, claiming that they somehow violated Perry’s “freedoms of speech and association protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.” Of course, Rick Perry is a quasi (or not so “quasi?”) secessionist who fancies himself as a fierce defender of another Amendment – the Tenth – and a champion of “states’ rights.” How does Perry square his fidelity to the Tenth Amendment, which would presumably give Virginia and its Republican Party the right to set its own rules for primary ballot access, with his newfound support for the Fourteenth Amendment, which “protects a person’s civil and political rights from being abridged or denied by any state”? Got me, but if asked, Perry would undoubtedly come up with three reasons, at least one of which he wouldn’t be able to remember, and the other two of which he wouldn’t understand. Gotta love the Republican’t field for president this cycle, huh? Definitely NOT the “A Team,” let’s just put it that way.
P.S. This is also idiotic because Perry’s most stupidest candidacy should be long gone by Virginia.
