Rick Perry’s Fed Up!—Not Really The Most Fun You Can Have In A Field In Indiana

I was driving with a friend yesterday in Indiana.

We came across the field you see in the first picture below.

This field contained both a farm silo and a football goalpost and upright.

My friend and I figured that this just had to be the most wholesome middle-America location in all the nation.

Farm and football in one spot in Indiana.

I just happened to have in my rental car a copy of Rick Perry’s book Fed Up!

I wondered if reading Fed Up! as an everyday middle American in such a wholesome spot in Indiana would cause the book to make some sense.

So far I’ve just read the book as a liberal snob in the big city of Houston.

In the bottom picture you see me reading Fed Up! in front of the silo.

I’ve got to tell you that this book reads just as stupid and mean-spirited in rural America as it does in the big city.

Though, of course, Indiana voted for Barack Obama in 2008.

People all over the nation have the decency and common sense to know that we should care for one another, and to know that government has a role to play in our lives.

If Rick Perry is nominated by the Republican Party in 2012, his extreme views will be rejected in all parts of our great republic

  4. Rushmore wasn’t set in Houston; it was filmed in Houston.

    Off the top of my head, movies set in Houston (or surrounding area) include Tin Cup, Rollerball, Hellfighters, The Sugarland Express, and one quick scene in Independence Day (I-45 gets nuked.) Also a bunch of space movies, like Apollo 13, Armageddon and Space Cowboys.

    A lot of those movies were also filmed in or around Houston. So was RoboCop 2 (and 3, I think). That always makes me laugh that Houston had to fill in for dystopian future Detroit. Yikes.
