#2

It’s less that he’s ignorant of clocks, more that he doesn’t know how metaphors work.


#3

Maybe he has the same watch I do:


#4

Perhaps the saying should go, “a broken metaphor is still right once every conservative convention”?


#5

Perry don’t cotton to no fancy book learn’un!

FACT!


#6

He said CLOCK, not WATCH… sheesh…


#7

Uh… what?


#8

isn’t there one other thing he’s forgetting?.. oops!


#9

Or he’s simply half as effective as a broken clock.


#10

Not knowing stuff is how the rich show that they are just like you and me.


#11

Randi Rhodes called him “The Little Dumber Boy”. Bingo. I miss you, Randi.


#12

Maybe he means this kind.


#13

Could be he’s right as often as a broken sundial.


#14

Rick Perry, like every good Republican, only keeps military time.


#15

You mean… every night?


#16

Perry takes a ticking, and keeps on licking.


#17

Heh… it’s s’posed to tell time, not the weather.


#18

Between understanding clocks and the tides, it’s no wonder the space program has been floundering.


#19

Don’t worry, the Republicans have a great idea for how to save money on space launches via the “just push 'em off the edge” approach.


#20

Maybe he’s French, and so uses a 24-hour clock.
