Recent Rick Perry Jokes

On a tour of the Grand Canyon. Governor Perry commented, "This would be really beautiful country if they only filled up that hole."

Texans are so happy Governor Perry is running for President. Now he'll be our problem too.

Interestingly, the Governor does support labor unions. As long as they favor low-paying jobs without benefits and security, they're fine with him!

I am laughing. A lot of these jokes were used when Governor Clinton ran for President, though. ;)
