Paint Creek, TX. Rick Perry’s second grade teacher, Matilda Gonzalez, explained Governor Rick Perry’s inability in a Republican debate to remember the third of three federal departments he would close . She recalled that he never learned to count to more than two.
“He was a bit, well, not the sharpest spur on the boots,” said Gonzalez who taught Perry when he was a seven year-old child in the small West Texas town of Paint Creek. “All the other kids in the second grade could count to 100 but poor Ricky was stuck on two. He just couldn’t get in his mind that there were numbers above two.”
“We worried about him, of course, but were confident he would not have to use his rather poor math skills doing day labor in Paint Creek. We were shocked when he became a politician. But then we realized that where could you get a good job other than politics if you couldn’t count above two.”
