Perry and the Coyote

by evanmcmurry

We now must consider the theological implications of Perry’s dropping out. If God first told him to run, then a) Perry values his remaining pride more than the dictates of his lord; b) God changed his mind, Abraham-style, and is no better than those wuss undecided voters; c) God doesn’t exist, and Perry was cynically exploiting other peoples’ faith; or d) God’s got a wicked sense of humor. In any event, I hope the ghost of the coyote Perry shot visits him in dreams every night for the rest of his life, and that Perry wakes up in the cold sweat of expendability.
