Rick Perry, the ultimate justice candidate

In the Republican presidential candidate debate the other night, Rick Perry was asked about the 234 death row inmates whose executions he'd approved during his tenure as Texas governor... "more than any other governor in modern times".

Perry was unable to respond immediately due to the huge round of applause the crowd gave to the news that a front runner for President of the United States has been such a success at delivering what he termed "the ultimate justice".

Jon Stewart said it best and simplest in the clip below: "Holy fuckballs."

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.

Thanks for your comment, and if you can suggest something even remotely funny about the governor of Texas (and possible presidential nominee) saying he doesn’t lose any sleep over the (very good) possibility that he has approved the execution of innocent men ... I’d love to hear it.

I may be old-fashioned, but I remember when comics tried to be funny, not just smug.

Sorry, we missed your input...
