Rick Perry A Prophet?

Rick Perry told FOX News this afternoon that the reason that he is so unpopular with Texans is “The prophet is generally not loved in their hometown.”

Texans aren't particularly taken with Perry, but it's certainly not because of his proclaimed propheticality. Perhaps it's Texas' record deficit. Or his refusal to spend the Rainy Day Fund at the expense of public education and state social services. Or that he asked us to pray for rain. Or that of all 50 states, Texas has the highest proportion of uninsured people, the third highest poverty rates, and ranks near the bottom in education achievement. Maybe it's the assbaggery of comparing yourself to a prophet.

So now he's considering a run for the White House. Isn't Rick Perry supposed to hate the federal government?
