Rick Perry Continues to Think He’s a Scholar of Turkey

by Liz Colville

dur

In Monday night’s debate, Rick Perry made the claim that Turkey was “ruled by what many would perceive to be Islamic terrorists.” Just as bafflingly, people from as far and wide as actual Turkey and D.C. have taken time out of their busy days Tuesday to condemn Perry’s par-for-the-course proclamation. But he’s been to Turkey, for god’s sake. He lived there. Have you?

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry responded to the claims by saying that Perry’s comments are “baseless and inappropriate” and that Turkey would not be wasting (but here it is wasting) its time on political candidates “who do not even know their allies.” The statement also dissed Perry’s low poll standings and added, “Figures who are candidates for positions that require responsibility, such as the U.S. presidency, should be more knowledgeable about the world and exert more care with their statement.”

Meantime, Perry’s camp is cavalierly maintaining that what Perry said last night holds true today, more or less. Defends his foreign policy adviser Victoria Coates:

The governor was responding to the questioners references to violence against women and to association with Hamas, I think both of which are things that many people do associate as he said with Islamic terrorists…He was referring to those things, and while he would welcome the opportunity to work with Turkey on regional issues like Syria or Iraq, this kind of behavior on the part of that country is disturbing and I think we should concerned about it.

Perry! So protective of women! Even ones that are barely women yet!

Well, this is a fun distraction for Perry, who really should have dropped out a week or maybe a month ago. A new PPP poll released Tuesday shows that he doesn’t even have the most support of the candidates in his home state of Texas (he’s third behind Romney and Gingrich). Also, a large 39 percent of respondents in that poll actually think the governor is hurting the image of the state. A pretty remarkable feat.

The Turkish ambassador to the U.S., Namik Tan, appears to actually, in the end, feel kind of bad for the guy. “While it was unfortunate,” he said at the end of his statement, “we do hope this episode in last night’s debate leads to a better informed foreign policy discussion among the Republican Party candidates, one where long-standing allies are treated with respect not disdain.”

Ignorance as a stepping stone to wisdom…a classic tenet of Republican philosophy.

We’ll leave the last word with the Turkish-American Council:

How can we expect to have friends in the international world if our leaders show this level of ignorance and narrow mindedness in trying to score political points?

But the lasting image is of Mitt Romney, undoubtedly smiling and looking down at his notepad of doodles while Perry driveled on. One man’s gaffe is another man’s pina colada by the pool/presidential nomination. [USA Today/Talking Points Memo]

It's not "fucking" if you just carefully place your "Lil Perry" inside the turkey's cloaca, and just "live there," you know.

If he continues to wear his Brokeback wardrobe, he might just be a gobbler.

Could be worse. He could have called them "Turduckens"

memzilla January 17, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Perry, who, as a leader, is a turkey, doesn't know anything about Turkey, which is a NATO member. I wouldn't mind if Turkey felt the need to launch a first strike.

GOPCrusher January 17, 2012 at 5:27 pm

Galveston and parts of Houston, too. If you ask someone from West Texas what's wrong with those places, they'll tell you with varying degrees of tact that Houston and Galvestion are full of gay people, Hispanics, immigrants, and liberals. Those exact terms won't be used, however

littlebigdaddy January 17, 2012 at 4:33 pm

He's probably one of those people you hear about every Thanksgiving who tries to deep fry a frozen turkey and burns down the whole trailer park.

".. burns down the whole trailer park. "

along with the meth factories therein

That's why the whole trailer park burns so fast. The turkey grease is just the spark.

How dare Turkey be mean to the womenfolks. That's a job best suited for Teahadist Xtian Americans.

I'm sure Romney was against Turkey before he was for it.

Romney seems more the "peasant under glass" sort.

A President Perry would end the practice of pardoning a Turkey each Thanksgiving.

IceCreamEmpress January 17, 2012 at 4:47 pm

Considering that he's lived in the US his whole life (except for his Turkey years) and knows approximately jack point shit about its history, Constitution, etc., why should this be any different?

You know, back in the days when the clown car was straight-up called the Know-Nothing Party, Perry would have been right in the wheelhouse.

Lionel[redacted]Esq January 17, 2012 at 4:47 pm

Well, as far as I know, the state of Texas does not have any active affiliations to Hamas. Thank God, or otherwise I would think it was under the control of Islamic extremist.

Barrelhse January 17, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Sue Myrick says Hamas and Hezbollah are stampeding across the border from Mexico, even as we fools are asleep at the wheel, so it's possible they've quietly assumed control while Rico has been out of state.
Also, I laughed when the Houston Texans LOST in the playoffs.

Lionel[redacted]Esq January 17, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Plus, really, with names like "Namik Tan," are you going to tell me that the Turks aren't planning on bombing us to smithereens?

Barrelhse January 17, 2012 at 6:42 pm

We should seriously consider a pre-emtive strike because our National Security- and our very way of life- is under threat.
And the rest of 'em too, just in case.

chicken_thief January 17, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Did foreign policy adviser Victoria Coates go to the same school of Journalism as Lou Sarah?! Her attempted explanation of whatever Rick the Flaming Cowboy was trying to say is a word salad rivalling anything out of Wasilla.

I perceive Perry to be someone who was educated at a third-rate Texas University and gets most of his information from USA Today.

Not to be picky, but maybe "attended" instead of "educated at"?
We won't laugh at him for being a Yeller(!), though, because male cheerleaders are the future of Texas.

LADY Turkeys? Really?

SorosBot January 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Rick, Turkey is working on us "on regional issues like Syria or Iraq". It's also the only true democracy in the Middle East (no, an apartheid state doesn't count) and the fact that a few religious fundamentalist assholes there would like to restrict the rights of women – just like in, oh, the US – doesn't change the fact that they have a free and open society. Not all Muslim countries are the same.

Rotundo_ January 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Remember when we supposedly wanted a president we would want to have a beer with and got Dubya. In Ricky's case, I would be afraid he would drown drinking a bottle of the stuff. Do they have to lead him up to the podium at the debates and stuff?

GOPCrusher January 17, 2012 at 5:34 pm

That's why they don't let him outside when it rains.

You mean like forcing women to carry a brain dead baby to term like Rick Perry does?

Chichikovovich January 17, 2012 at 5:07 pm

It's interesting to note how many ways you could get a fitting sentence with different placements of the phrase "like Rick Perry" and dropping redundant words.

There's your question:

You mean like forcing women to carry a brain dead baby to term like Rick Perry does?

And then there's:
You mean like Rick Perry, forcing women to carry a brain dead baby to term?

And then of course:
You mean forcing women to carry a brain dead like Rick Perry baby to term?

teebob2000 January 17, 2012 at 5:17 pm

For that last statement from the Turkish-American Council to refer to Perry as one of our "leaders" is as misleading and inaccurate as Perry's own statement. He's a bumblefuck governor of a genetically-deficient back-water state. For fuck's sake, he's succeeded in embarrassing 40% of his own constituents by his repeated ignorance, and for Texans (supplier of our nation's elementary school textbooks, don't forget!), that's saying something.

Wow – someone who still holds out hope that Republicans can become better informed. The Repubs themselves don't want to become better informed and the rest of us have given up hope of it ever happening.

SayItWithWookies January 17, 2012 at 5:57 pm

It's too bad Rick Perry failed animal husbandry in college — because he could really use one of those elbow-length latex gloves right now to figure out where he left his head.

Speaking of Islamophobia, it's funny how Americans are all worked up about Taliban terrorfighters spending their days stopping little girls from going to school.

The only thing Rick Perry has accomplished by running for president, other than spending lots of money, is to have convinced most people in the country that he's a fundamentally stupid man.

“Figures who are candidates for positions that require responsibility, such as the U.S. presidency, should be more knowledgeable about the world and exert more care with their statement.”

What's pathetic is that we needed a Turkish government spokesman to say it.

Hey Texas! Come and pick up your boy, he's acting funny again! Think of this next election cycle, OK?

comrad_darkness January 17, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Categorically, if Rick Perry spouts ignorant things about you, whether you be a country or a person, that should be interpretted as the highest form of praise.

Look at his record, hell he started out as a Democrat and has consistently changed his course like a lotto ball in the tumbler.
