PERRYMAN AND SUPERROM
News item: Republican candidates to debate in California on Wednesday,
September 7, 2011.
Superrom: Hey! You know Michele B says the earthquake and hurricane on
the east coast were God's wrath on the Democrats in Washington. Makes
one wonder what you've been up to in Texas.
Perryman: Come on Superrom, you can't pin that on me. It's all the record
hot weather we've been having ... ya know ... climate change and all that
stuff ... not caused by us though.
S: Perryman, you gotta admit when those fires are circling Austin -- that's
your capital where the legislature sits where you have your Governor's
mansion -- that maybe Michele's got something there. Texas is our biggest
state, by far, among the 48 contiguous -- it's a big place, and to have the
fires just around where you are ... well!
P: You won't get the religious right vote that way. I pray in public; I know
them. They're my people. Maybe I should also in private ... you know, when
I'm blow-drying my hair. That's a lotta time right there for multitasking.
S: You gonna come Wednesday, right, even with the fires raging ...
P: Yep! You ain't gettin' all your own way this time. I'll be in an' out before
they know I'm missin'.
