At Least Rick Perry Has The Candor To Revel In Our Death Culture

From last night’s Republican debate

“When co-moderator Brian Williams of NBC noted the 234 executions that took place in Texas on the watch of Gov. Rick Perry, the current frontrunner in the GOP presidential contest, the crowd assembled in the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, roared its approval. Asked if he ever lost sleep worrying that one of those executed might have been innocent, Perry replied, “No, sir. I’ve never struggled with that at all.”

I’ll say this for Rick Perry—At least he invites us to revel in the contempt for life and hope that often defines this country in so many aspects of public policy and daily conduct.

At least he makes no excuses in a culture where leaders of both parties and much of the public turn their backs everyday on the people who need help the most.

At least he tells you what he is all about.

Rick Perry offers Americans a clear choice. People can decide what they want.

Here are some facts about Rick Perry’s executions. 

Here is the discussion from the debate last night.
