Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart noted Tuesday that there is something a little creepy about the way Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry feels about his country.
“I think you want a president who cares about America, that’s in love with America,” Perry said Monday in Iowa.
“You want a president that’s in love with America,” Stewart repeated. “You want a president who would in a rain storm, grab America’s hand and take shelter with America in a nearby barn. And maybe help America out of its wet clothes. Maybe lay America down on some hay bales and as America and Rick Perry become one, the sounds of their love making merging, with the thunder storms cacophany, the barn shutters rattling the livestock. The livestock, they want to look away, but they can’t. They’re eyes are transfixed.”
“I am Rick Perry and unlike Barack Obama, I will fuck the shit out of America!” he exclaimed. “America, you got a pretty mouth.”
“That was awkward,” Stewart added.
