Tom Perkins, a former HP director and legendary co-founder of one of Silicon Valley’s top venture capital firms, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield Byers, is backing Carly Fiorina for President of the United States. I bet nobody saw that coming.
Over the weekend, GOP presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Rick Perry = joined the GOP’s evangelical outreach coordinator Chad Connelly and North Carolina pastor Ron Baity — famous for warning that God would send a disease worse than Ebola in punishment for gay marriage — at a “We Stand With God ” rally in front of the South Carolina state capitol meant to remind elected leaders that there are still people who “stand for God’s definition of family.”

His scattered oeuvre features thousands of offbeat and often-improvised songs on everything from Ellen DeGeneres to wonton soup to bar mitzvahs. He’s given surreal lectures on topics like veganism and Tinder at universities like MIT and NYU. On Twitter and ESPN, he places what he calls “Based God’s Curses” on NBA players who cross him, which some believe might just be the reason why the Houston Rockets’ James Harden choked in the last seconds of Game 2 in this year’s Western Conference Finals. Slate once described Lil B as the “weirdo rapper”—“a brilliantly warped, post-Lil Wayne deconstructionist.”
