Exclusive Coverage of Rick Perry’s National Day of Prayer

Presidential wannabe (even though he hasn’t admitted it yet) Rick Perry held a National Day of Prayer at Houston’s Reliant Arena today. He told the audience: “I’m one of you!”

Rick Perry’s gathering of the faithful was financed by the American Family Association.

Perry’s official name for today’s event is The Response. One speaker after another called for a return to Family Values and Decency.

Outside the arena, a protester told reporters:

“The brand of Christianity being offered today is one of fear, and we want to let people know that God loves everyone, not to be afraid.”

When Rick Perry heard that, he gave The Response.

I saw on Joe my God, one of the speakers talking about Jews in Israel need to find the Messiah. Where they get these idiots is entirely beyond me.

It will be useful to hit Guv Goodhair with later, since paling around with Klanazis guarantees him some scrutiny, whether or not the MSM will report on it.

That's a big whether, J.R. I sense the media are itching for someone to bring some excitement and a real horse race at a time when Republicans running are a bunch of embarrassing dipstick retreads and dull-thud nonentities.

If Perry gets into the race I look for a lot of media to boost him much the way they boosted George W. Bush in '99 and 2000. I look for the Conservative News Network to do as much or more than Fox in that regard.

I agree with Jolly Roger. This event might buy Perry a little juice with the social conservatives now but will be a huge albatross for him with a wider national audience.

I fully expect Perry to announce he is running, and that he will do it anytime soon.

While Perry may drum up excitement and be sensational and look like something out of Hollywood and all, I think some of his stances will be tough for him to explain to moderates/independent voters when he comes under more scrutiny. IF he comes under any scrutiny.

The MSM may choose to boost him rather than really examine him. I suspect they will love his "maverickyness" and his uncompromising moral standards, how he stands up for his beliefs in the face of whatever, etc. and that they will try and put off his talk about secession as tongue-in-cheek, how public education "needs something" so "let's see how rewriting the text books" (i.e. revising history) works for the kids of Texas, etc.

They're already at it, SW. I posted on it the other night :)

Well, this completely sucks. I love the bumper sticker I saw that said something like "The last time we mixed politics with religion people got burned at the stake."

Probably the plan.

Jess: There seems to be an endless supply of these wackjobs.

JR: The Democrats will have to run some hard-hitting TV ads showing the kind of nutzoids Perry is affiliated with.

SW: You're right, the "media" won't bother scrutinizing Perry; bloggers and TV commercials will have to do the media's job for them.

J: Let's hope that albatross pulls him down.

Snave: The MSM will probably whitewash Perry like they did with Dumbya in the 2000 election. Hopefully, Democratic strategists will Know Their Enemy (Koch Brothers, Wall Street, Karl Rove's tactics, etc.) a lot better in 2012 than they did 12 years earlier, and they'll know how to counterattack.

Dave: Praise The Lord!

SM: I guess some Americans would like a return of the Spanish Inquisition. Hopefully not a majority.

Erik: LOL.
