Rick Perry Enters The Race! Where Is Captain Invincible?

It appears that the GOP field has gotten a little more crowded - not really seeing that Tim Pawlenty decided to drop out of the race because of his third-place showing in the Iowa straw-poll this week - with Texas Governor Rick Perry joining the race.

While Jon Stewart pointed out that everyone seems to be overlooking Ron Paul (second-place winner in the straw poll) and declaring the front-runners to be Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, and now Rick Perry, I think the assessment is somewhat correct. While I somewhat like Ron Paul, I think he is unelectable because everyone, including the GOP, has written him off as a kook and the GOP establishment, including the Republican brass at Fox News, do not want his perceived image to sully their other right-wing candidates - mainly Perry and Bachmann.

Anyway, I figured I would offer this little gem from the 1983 Australian musical comedy and superhero film, The Return of Captain Invincible, featuring Rick Perry singing the song "Bullshit," which is appropriate seeing that it pretty much sums up his campaign and politics.  My favorite part comes around the 20-second mark.


  1. Yes indeed. I love this movie. One difference between Michael Pate and Rick Perry: Michael Pate got to play president of the U.S.
