This is what it has come down to. Robert Morrow, a supporter of Rep. Ron Paul has bought an ad in a local Austin newspaper asking in Star Wars font, “Have you ever had sex with Rick Perry?”
Morrow claims that he knows strippers in Austin who have stories about Perry, but none of them are willing to come forward to the press; hence, the need for an ad in the Chronicle. “I think it’s only a matter of time until somebody credible comes forward,” he told me.
At the bottom of the ad is a nod to the longtime (and equally unsubstantiated) rumors that Perry, who has pursued sundry anti-gay policies, is himself gay. “Note to gay people: If you know the truth about Rick, please QUIT covering for him,” it reads.
Let me run through this. Unemployment is still above 9 percent. Jobless claims are still rising. Our credit rating is downgraded. The debt is still skyrocketing. The Dow is plummeting. Inflation is rising.
We’re still in Afghanistan and Iraq. Iran is still a danger and in kahoots with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. China looms. The Russian Bear is rising again. Drug war rages on our Southern border.
And this tool is worried about smearing Rick Perry as gay, because he thinks he’s a Neocon.
In the spirit of Michelle Moore, this guy needs punched in the face.
Rick Perry as a sexual hypocrite in the White House would be a step up from the executive neophyte we currently have running the country into the ground.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t support anyone who has extra-curricular sex when married, gay or straight, but seriously, it’s not something I feel I need to make a Star Wars ad over.
Which would be more of a game changer for you: Rick Perry is a closet gay, or Rick Perry is a closet Marxist?
See what I mean. I would trust a closet gay with the country before I would a closet Marxist.
Let’s try to focus on what’s important.
