Another Texan Called Someone Treasonous With Very Bad Results

President wannabe Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas, thought he was being clever when he made some outrageous statements about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, making his maiden campaign swing in Iowa after jumping into the race for the Republican presidential nomination, suggested Monday night that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke would be committing an act of treason by printing more money between now and November 2012.

Responding to a question about the Federal Reserve at a campaign event in Cedar Rapids, Perry said: “If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous, or treasonous, in my opinion.”
Even a former spokesman for George W. Bush called Perry's comments "inappropriate and unpresidential."


 As a friend, my personal expert on all things Kennedy, pointed out, this was not the first time a Texan had accused a federal official of treason:

That pamphlet was distributed in Dallas, Texas on the very day that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Either Perry doesn't know his state's history very well or he's just a bloody idiot that doesn't deserve to be a dogcatcher, much less President of the United States or even a governor.  He needs to apologize and do so pretty darn quickly.
