Below is an AP article posted at The AP may not be so bold as to tell you who you should vote for, but they do a fine job of telling you who you should not vote for. I am probably violating fair use laws, but I wanted to show you the whole article for effect. I’ll comment at the end.

Perry’s credentials: As conservative as they come – WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-

By CHRIS TOMLINSONAssociated Press
                  AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – If Texas Gov. Rick Perry runs for president, he’d bring along strong conservative credentials.
                  He denounces Social Security and other entitlement programs, and he represents activists in fights on social issues such as abortion and gay rights.
                  Even within his own party, Perry is a rabble-rouser. He complains that too few politicians are standing up for their conservative beliefs.
                  Perry puts his beliefs on display in his books and his legislative agenda in Texas.
                  He’s advocated laws that require a sonogram before an abortion and that force police to enforce federal immigration law.
                  But most of all, he believes in state’s rights and says that’s where laws concerning marijuana and gay marriage should be decided.
                  Whether those politics can win him the presidency is an open question.

The title says it all, but in case you haven’t been numbed into believing that conservatives are evil/bad/sexist/racist/intolerant/etc., then I’ll extract some goodies to help you loathe conservatives just like our media shepherds.

Paragraph two helps you understand why conservatives are bad, you see. They denounce Social Security and other entitlement programs (I.e. welfare). Don’t bother with their reasoning or explanations, all we need to know is that conservatives “denounce” them. We also know that they are “activists” on social issues.

The next few paragraphs tell us more about Perry specifically. Perry is a “rabble-rouser”, he “complains”, he actually puts into practice his conservative beliefs by having you take a look at the human life that you’re about to kill (abortion), and actually enforcing laws that help keep everyone safe and playing by the same rules (immigration), and he thinks that the states have rights before the federal government.

The AP reporter wraps it up with this little “I hope not” gem:

Whether those politics can win him the presidency is an open question.

I doubt there is any question in his mind about what to expect.
