Perry storms Omaha Beach

Gov. Yosemite Sam of Texas went off on a tangent and compared his race for the White House to the allies storming Normandy in World War II.

Here are the details from MSNBC:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry today compared the GOP’s quest to defeat President Barack Obama to one of the deadliest battles of the D-Day landings in Normandy in 1944.

“This election is about stopping a president of the United States and his administration that is abusing the Constitution of this country, that is putting America on a track to bankruptcy,” Perry told a hotel ballroom packed with more than 200 volunteers.

“It is a powerful moment in Americans’ history, and you are on the front lines,” he added. “This is Concord. This is Omaha Beach. This is going up the hill realizing that the battle is worth winning.”

OK, let me get this straight. According to Rick Perry, the Iowa caucus is the equivalent of this:

Really, you can hardly tell the difference, right?

With the Serial Adulterer battling in Pearl Harbor and Yosemite Sam at Normandy, you get the sense that if they had been president at the time, we’d all be speaking German and Japanese today.

Well, depending what the final results are in the Iowa caucus, maybe they’ll just give the nomination to Romney already. Then we’ll at least be able to focus on one fount of crazy.
