Here is another post in the vein of Christine O'Donnell's "Troublemaker" living down to its name, which isn't about sustainability in Detroit, but does fit the Nablopomo theme of Fiction and the listing of this blog under politics on the Nablopomo blogroll. Also, it's about an intra-Tea-Party spat. Since I see the Tea Partiers as obstacles to achieving sustainability, it's not as off-topic as one might first think.
Go over the jump to see why I labeled this one "Fiction." Believe me, it deserves it.
Even before I read the fine print, I knew that Robert Morrow had to be behind this. He started this back in June when he was all over the comments to a New York Magazine story on Rick Perry’s marriage. He had all kinds of juicy stuff to say about Governor Goodhair’s sex life. If you want to read just his comments, click on his profile link.
Then, his remarks got traction over at Stuffed Suits, a Tea Party site based in South Carolina, which posted Tea Party Fraud Rick Perry is Political Herpes. At that point, Texas political blogger Juanita Jean started paying attention, when she posted Strip Clubs? Really? Strip Clubs? Like With Girls? That was a couple of days ago. Today, she posted this ad in What Kind of Boots? She didn't understand the Hillary Clinton Boots reference. It turns out that Morrow is doing the same thing to Perry that he was doing to Clinton back in 2008.
St. Petersburg Times: Some people just love to hate the Clintons
Spreading dubious theories is a Texas man's full-time hobby. What will he do if the senator loses?
The answer to that question ended up being "find a new target." This time, it was the in-state rival to his beloved Ron Paul. Maybe he's trying to replicate for Ron Paul what worked for Michele Bachmann against Tim Pawlenty. Good luck with that.
