173: "That Damned Fool Perzel"

John Perzel is an ignorant, egotistical, arrogant, self-centered elitist who thinks what he leaves in the toilet bowl doesn’t stink. In fact, Perzel stinks. For that matter, so does Vince Fumo. Between them, the tax payers are soaked for several hundred thousands of dollars per year for Public Relations firms?

Pardon me? Why would a politician require the services of a PR firm?

Perzel’s latest escapade in public shows one reason: he is completely out of touch with reality. He is a blabbermouth who spouts facts to support his ridiculous claims – and the facts turn out to be complete fabrications.

On WITF, the Public TV Station in Hershey on Thursday night, John Perzel reported that 30 members of the House of Representatives could not apply for a credit card because of bad credit. To remedy this, he defended the unconstitutional Pay Raise of last summer! He claimed that there is a problem with the pay of members of the House who have been in office for 25 years getting the same pay as someone who was elected months ago in a special election to fill an empty seat.

Perzel comes across as a clueless moron. First, and foremost, there can be no justification for what Perzel, Rendell, and Chief Justice Ralph Cappy did last July in unconstitutionally passing that Pay Raise. None. Zero. Zip. Secondly, Perzel has no clue why 25 members of the House have bad credit, and it is none of his business. It is tough on them. They didn’t have to run for office. Third, it’s become obvious why there should not be someone in office for 25 years…they grow too comfortable and lose sight of what is important. Elected officials are supposed to be citizens first, and second they are to represent their constituency, always keeping in mind what is best for that constituency. We have no sympathy whatsoever for overpaid elected officials who have been in office far too long, and think they deserve to be compensated for their experience – and that includes Perzel and Fumo, as well as quite a few others. Again, tough on them. We’ll bet the voters in Perzel’s district and in Fumo’s are getting pretty fed up with their excesses. Their Democratic Machine goons cannot follow the voters into the booth in November. [Yes, we know Perzel is supposed to be Republican, but he is in no way a Republican. Never was, never will be.]

This is what we propose.

There are, at last count, 58 Republicans on the floor of the House (as of last week’s vote on the property tax bill where Perzel forced some 49 gutless Republicans to vote for the bill) who have spine enough to defy Perzel.

We need to force these 49 back into the fold and have them demand a vote for Speaker. They should propose someone of the caliber of Paul Clymer, and NOT one of Perzel’s lackeys. Definitely not Sam Smith.

Perzel’s constituents ought to ask him to step down immediately from office. He is not only out of touch, he is out of control.

John Perzel is a fool. Not just a fool, but a dangerous fool – one with power. That must be taken from him immediately.

Then, I suggest that since Perzel believes they make more money than a legislator, that he apply for a job starting in January as a Philadelphia Tattoo Artist, or a Lancaster County Dairy Milker.

Perzel’s been on stage too long. Somebody get the hook!
