Where’s the Book Certificate?

Everybody’s raving over Rick Perry’s new book!

Bobby Jindal: “My friend Rick Perry knows that it is the American people who make this country great and not Washington. With appropriate respect for both our rich history and the practical needs of today, Rick sees a bright future for America, based on freedom and limited government.”

Rush Limbaugh: “Rick Perry has hit the proverbial nail on the head in FED UP!, making a powerful case for a return to limited government and the restoration of the proper balance of power between Washington and the states. As Governor of Texas, he has seen firsthand the greatness of America and the prosperity we can enjoy when we empower people and get government out of the way. He explains in detail the historical, constitutional, and practical reasons why a government closest to the people protects liberty, and lays out the path to right the ship — citizen involvement and engagement to hold politicians accountable. No citizen should skip this book — your future depends on getting this right.”

Mark Levin: “In FED UP!, Governor Perry explains that we can and will save America by taking necessary steps to restore the proper balance of power between federal and state government. He understands what seemingly few other prominent politicians do — that America’s greatness stems from the people and our collective respect for the Constitution, not from the ‘geniuses’ in Washington.”

Michael Reagan: “FED UP! lays out the truth of how far our Washington politicians have driven this nation off track. It’s refreshing to read that at least one of our leaders understood what my dad always knew. The Government works for the people and not the other way around.”

Wall Street Journal: “But since jumping into the 2012 GOP nomination race on Saturday, Mr. Perry has tempered his Social Security views. His communications director, Ray Sullivan, said Thursday that he had ‘never heard’ the governor suggest the program was unconstitutional. Not only that, Mr. Sullivan said, but ‘Fed Up!’ is not meant to reflect the governor’s current views on how to fix the program.

Wait, what?

“Fed Up!” (foreword by Newt Gingrich) was published last November — and disavowed last week. Which might set a new record for Youthful Indiscretions.

Charles Barkley: “I was misquoted in my autobiography.”

@redmanlaw: And, of course, Ron Ziegler: “This is the operative statement. The others are inoperative.”

On Sunday evening, at Mr. Perry’s first campaign stop in Iowa, a questioner asked the governor to talk about how he would fix the country’s rickety entitlement programs. Mr. Perry shot back: “Have you read my book, ‘Fed Up!’ Get a copy and read it.”


Oh, shit. Found a Dinesh D’Souza book behind the Merck Manual.

WTF is Steele doing on Rachel?

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Right? They’re not running for office–these are book tours.

How come none of you told me Big is back on Dyrdek?

@JNOV: I don’t think they allow him on conservative shows.
