(Newser) – Watch out federal workers: If you don’t agree with his small-government views, President Rick Perry would send you to someplace like Siberia. At a campaign event in New Hampshire today, Perry vowed to fill the government with “individuals that understand my core philosophy that government should do a few things, but do those few things really, really well,” the Washington Post reports.

Perry said he’d deconstruct the EPA, for example, and bring Health and Human Services to heel. And if the agencies don’t fall in line? “I don’t think you can fire federal bureaucrats,” he said, “but you can reassign them. So, but reassign them to some really God-awful place." The line drew chuckles from the crowd.

Not just an awful place but a God-awful place. I guess Perry and God are not on good terms. God told us He doesn't support Perry via the failed rain prayer. I guess Perry is pissed at God for leaving him out to hang and now is using His name (God) to mean something really, really bad.
