Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

This is Rick Perry.

He was just re-elected as the governor of Texas. He makes me want to vomit. The strut, the cockiness—vintage George W. Bush. But he’s actually dumber than Bush, which many probably thought not possible.

Seriously, do me the honor of watching his speech. I consider it the worst, least-classy victory speech I’ve ever heard. Am I wrong?
