Former governor and highly entertaining presidential candidate Rick Perry has gone into a political pseudo-retirement. After handing over Texas’ reins to wheelchair bronco-bustin’ cowboy Greg Abbott, and failing to get the Republican nomination for president, Perry’s political career really seemed to have come to a stopping point.
Apparently, he’s gone a little stir-crazy. Our beloved former governor has hit a midlife crisis and is looking for a new way to spend his time. Jimmy Carter has his foreign aid, George W. Bush took up painting, what about Perry? Apparently he’s just gotta cut loose!
Rick Perry will be joining the famous TV show “Dancing With the Stars” for their 23rd season. According to a tweet from him, this move is meant to bring awareness to issues faced by our veterans.
I don’t even need to write any jokes for this story, just the mental image is enough! I, for one, will definitely be tuning in! Let’s hope this competition goes better than his presidential campaigns…
