Three things I wanna tell you about the 2011 Bum Steers isssue of Texas Monthly:
1. As editor Jake Silverstein writes, Rick Perry came out of absolutely nowhere to become the Bum Steer of the Year. When work began on the piece in late September, there were no compelling BSOTY candidates. Dude went on some kind of unprecedented Bum Steer rampage.
2. The Rick Perry Venn Diagram is absolutely brilliant, which, of course, means I had nothing to do with it.
3. Um, the EPA?
But in all seriousness, as a humorist, I’m as proud of this edition of the Bum Steers as any I’ve worked on. Pick that shit up at your newsstand, yo. Or better yet, subscribe.
