He waited too long.

He's low energy.

"He's low energy."

That's how he landed the gig in the first place.

Now that Perry knows what the Energy Department actually does, it's time to move on to something else he's clueless about.

"His departure is unrelated to the ongoing Ukraine scandal"

So then.
Which ongoing scandal is it related to?

Is he going to abolish those three departments he can't remember before he leaves?

I almost forgot he was part of this administration.

He mostly flew under the radar. He looks like he might join Nikki Haley as the only other person to leave this administration unstained.

Nope.

"Democrats want details on the bespectacled Energy secretary's travels to Ukraine, including for Volodymyr Zelensky's inauguration"a trip flagged by the whistle-blower."

Everything trump touches dies. Still these greedbags line up to be the next victim.

He came in to the administration pretty stained. Trump rightly noted during the primaries that Perry is a dunce. Then, of course, Trump (who hires only the best people) gave him a Cabinet-level job. He is the dimmest bulb ever to be the U.S. Secretary of Energy. For example, he previously said that using fossil fuels would reduce sexual assault in Africa. Because. Light.

There's a village in West Texas with a job opening. Candidates should present characteristics like those Gov. Specs McSmarty has...

You also think Marathon Man Paul Ryan left office unstained, JeffJ.

Whereas what he left is the legacy of unfunded liabilities that ideologically renders you incapable of supporting any new spending.

It's like you're thanking the man for castrating you financially which prevents you from doing anything new.

Which of course you are, because it's such an easy way to dodge the issues.

Rick Perry' was convinced he was a great man and....He wasn't.

He's remembering back in the good ole days, when he only had to deal with W's mild bumbling and cheney's situational narcissism.

Now, he has to be around the master of malignant narcissism, ignorance and incompetence and he just can't handle it.

He may be thinking, 'hey, I can be just as ignorant and incompetent as this buffoon. Plus, I have very nice hair...that is not glued on'.

Exactly. It's hilarious to see jeff refer to him as "unstained" - he was a stain. The guy had no business being an Energy Secretary, a job typically reserved for nuclear physicists and engineers. Perry is the picture of Trump's dumbing down of government, and he can't leave fast enough.

Please don't come back to Texas. Please don't come back to Texas. Please don't come back to Texas. Please don't come back to Texas. Please don't come back to Texas. Please don't come back to Texas. Please don't come back to Texas.
