"Our nation needs a leader in the White House who understands the role of government and our economy," said Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.
And then he endorsed Rick Perry anyway.
The Jones Vargas government affairs representative endorsed the floundering Texan knucklehead back when some people still thought Nevada's Republican caucus, and by extension the governor's endorsement, could actually matter. Yet the endorsement was reportedly wholly relationship-driven, which is to say Sandoval cavalierly put his personal considerations ahead of the best interest of his state and the nation. Either that or the former judge is, well, a shitty judge. Not that the two scenarios are mutually exclusive.
Anyway, everything's bigger in Texas, they say. The tiresomeness of Texan braggadocio notwithstanding, that's undeniably true with respect to a) the felicity with which the state's sitting governor can execute a nationally televised wingnut campaign implosion, and b) asshats.
Spectacularly done, Mousse in Boots. And as Yul Brynner said to Steve McQueen in The Magnificent Seven, "adios."
