Rick Perry rumors harden (no, not the gay ones)

"Our normally reliable Republican source reports that Mr. Perry has surveyed the field and decided to get in the race later this summer, perhaps around the time of the national prayer meeting that Mr. Perry is hosting on August 6 at a Houston football stadium. Our source also reports that Mr. Perry is aiming to compete in the Iowa Straw Poll, even though it occurs just a week later, on August 13. The thinking is that apparent front-runner Mitt Romney 'does not reflect the Republican Party' and is therefore vulnerable to a credible challenge from the right, especially after Mr. Romney's recent squishy remarks on global warming."

The guy that ran Al Gore's 1988 campaign in Texas has decided to enter the 2012 presidential race because Mitt Romney is too soft on climate change.

That flip-flop is so massive that Goliath's whole foot fits in the big toe's crevice. That flip-flop could refloat the Titanic. That flip-flop is so huge that it has other smaller flip-flops orbiting it. That flip-flop is so effing big ...

Look at the time factor involved.

Perry's work with Gore was a quarter century ago, when Gore was still pretending to be a conservative (remember, he originated Willie Horton as a campaign issue), while Romney's position on climate change is much more recent -- indeed, is current.

And I say that as someone who would vote for Romney before I'd vote for Perry.

Why is it all you Lefties are so ready to sling homophobic slurs at your opponents, but then claim that you are the only folks who can protect gay people from homophobic haters on the right? Seems to me that is a major hypocrisy on your part -- almost as big as sponsoring legislation to protect minors from internet porn and then sending pictures of your Weiner to high school girls

I believe you are conflating Al Gore with Lee Atwater. A barely understandable error, since they looked so much alike in the '80's.

Provide evidence for this postulate, please. I'm willing to stand corrected, but I'm not willing to do your research for you. A link to FreeRepublic, NewsMax, Townhall, Big would obviously be insufficient evidence.

I am happy to post your Dr. Jekyll comments, Greg, but not so much when you turn into Mr. Hyde. I'm making an exception in this case.

What part of "What's wrong with being gay, anyway?" is unclear (from this previous post)? The smears began with Kay Bailey, as the Politico article with the awkward headline typo posted.

Yes, we lefties welcome diversity, and the legislation that passed in New York -- with the gracious assistance of a handful of reasonable Republicans -- as well as the Pride Parades all around the country this past weekend are evidence of that.

The hypocrisy regarding homosexuality is all on the right, and everyone but you, apparently, knows it.
