Compassionate Conservatives

As readers of this blog will know, I'm pretty liberal.

On Monday, Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, announced that he was activating 1,000 members of the National Guard to prevent children seeking asylum from gaining entry to the country.

Today he posed for this picture.

I remember in the 2000 Presidential election, Ralph Nader kept saying that there is no difference between the two political parties.

The Democratic Party has its issues, certainly. However, as far as I know, none of us have implicitly advocated using a helicopter-mounted machine gun to murder children fleeing genocide.

A friend on Facebook made the Full Metal Jacket reference, so here's the appropriate caption to the picture.
