Tough Guys Sean Hannity and Rick Perry Go Hunting Illegals in Texas

When George Bush landed on  the USS Abraham Lincoln in flight suit and  aviator boots to announce ‘Mission Accomplished’ after the Iraq War, red blooded white men in America felt something stir in their loins. “What a tough guy!” they thought. Because that’s all you need to be a hero in America – the right clothes and the right photo op.

Rick Perry and Sean Hannity, renown for being serious tough guys, showed America just how tough they were by hanging out with the Texas Highway Patrol on the Rio Grande yesterday, and posing with some very large guns. Their mission? To find immigrant children and send ’em back to whatever goddam country they came from!

Hannity, clearly giddy with excitement, tweeted out a slew of photos of himself and the Governor doing manly things like putting their hands next to powerful weapons and wearing the same baseball caps as the Highway Patrol team:

The message is clear: Sean Hannity and Rick Perry love America, and what says America better than big machine guns and killing illegals?
