Committee Gives Award in Obfuscation to Rick Perry.
Perry hits a ten on the Rickster Scale.
The Nobella Prize Committee announced a few moments ago that Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has won the Putz Prize in Obfuscation.
The governor won for his impression of Archie Bunker during a statement he made on Beat the Press regarding Social Security.
The governor has referred to Social Security as a Ponzi Scheme and recommended the fund be profitized and the payroll tax turned over to Wall Street con men.
The Committee interviewed citizens of the US randomly and asked them to give their opinion of Perry’s most recent idea.. A resident of Queens, Mrs. Edith Bunker, commented that “whatever” has been her husband’s plan for just about everything ever since she married him.
“Oh, wait til I tell Archie that Rick Perry is using his idea for Social Security.”
When hearing of the award, Perry is reported to have said: “I never obfuscated in my life. I’m a happily married man.
The Putz Prize consists of a statuette sculpted from rusted metal stolen from an auto junk yard. The statuette, known the world over as the Putzie, is given to winners while supplies last. Unfortunately for Governor Perry supplies just ran out.
