Governor Goodhair For VEEP!

Rick “Goodhair” Perry, thecloseted-gay governor of my native state of Texas, really wants to be the GOP vice presidential nominee in 2008. Perry wants the VEEP slot so bad that he is willing to throw his long-time pal and mentor Chimpy W. McFailureunder the bus.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry aired unusually pointed criticism of President Bush while stumping in Iowa for Rudy Giuliani for president last week. Perry predicted too that if Democrats prevail next year, the war on terrorism will return to U.S. soil.


Perry, responding to a party guest’s suggestion that federal spending could kill candidates with voters, said that as governor, Bush consistently signed into law budget increases.

“Let me tell you something,” Perry said: “George Bush was never a fiscal conservative. Never was. … Wasn’t when he was in Texas. … I mean, ’95, ’97, ’99, George Bush was spending money.”

Perry turned to his press secretary, Robert Black, who had joined him at the Iowa stop.

“Do you agree?” the governor asked.

Black nodded.


Perry raised his arms and fluttered his hands before adding [Holden Note: Toldja’, dood is teh gay!]: “Look, he was better than Al Gore,” the 2000 Democratic presidential nominee versus Bush.

Gov. Bush had to work with Democrats holding the jobs of lieutenant governor and speaker of the Texas House, Perry noted.

But, Perry said, every governor has veto powers. “And, frankly, my criticism is that he (Bush) should have told those guys (Democrats), look, you’re spending too much money, and I’m going to veto some line items (in the state budget).”

Perry described Giuliani as a fiscal conservative and supply-side Ronald Reagan Republican.

Perry said: “George Bush is not, and he never was.” He added that “we made an error with that phrase ‘compassionate conservative.’ He didn’t elaborate on the description that Bush applied to himself in the 2000 campaign.

Unfortunately, Governor Goodhair’s vice presidential ambitions are threatened byhis sheer stupidity.

Gov. Rick Perry made an apparent verbal slip Tuesday by describing former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee as the best Republican presidential candidate on the issue of ending abortion and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani as the most electable in the general election.

Perry, who has been campaigning for Giuliani nationally, made the gaffe while filing the paperwork for Giuliani to be on the March 4 Republican primary ballot in Texas.

Reporters asked Perry what he thought of some Republicans’ uneasiness with Giuliani because he is not against abortion.


“If that is the model, then the issue becomes very, very clear to me from the standpoint of who I want to support, and it is Mike Huckabee,” Perry said. “And then it goes to the next level: Who do we have that is the most electable from our candidates? And I think without a doubt it is Rudy Giuliani.”

Perry became defensive when reporters asked whether that meant he thought Huckabee, an anti-abortion candidate, was best on the abortion issue. He reiterated that he said Giuliani was the “most electable” Republican.

When it was pointed out that he had named Huckabee as his choice on abortion, Perry said: “I’m sorry I made an error. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.”

  1. Quote from Molly Ivins. It pertains to Bush but is still appropriate. We sure miss her down here.
    “In Texas, we do not hold high expectations for the [governor’s] office; it’s mostly been occupied by crooks, dorks and the comatose.”

  2. Every time I read something like this it’s harder not to slap pansy poo in the mouth — how about no more IDJITS from the KENNEBUNKPORT GHETTO, pansy poo?
    Holden, I know we’re just bloggers. But there is no veracity to be had in innuendo. Perry’s homosexuality has not been verified.
    It may not be verifiable. It’s also possible that he is one of those rare birds who is actually bi-curious or even bi-sexual.
    The former “gay lover” Burnt Orange Report tried to link him to has, I believe, not only left the Perry Administration but the Austin scene.

    Rick Perry’s Gay Lover, I mean, Secretary of State to Resign
    By Karl-Thomas Musselman
    In need of Governor Good Hair’s HairThanks to Vince over at the Free State Standard (glad to see you back!) we have news that Geoff Conner, Texas Secretary of State plans to leave his post next month.
    Of course, some will remember him from the good old Rick Perry is gay scandal. (he’s not as far as we know now) I just wanted to make sure that everyone could bid him a fond farewell.
    Perry gets to appoint another one, (his fourth so far) and Vince tells us…Perry will likely appoint North Texas car dealer and Bush/Cheney fund-raiser Roger Williams to the position, though Williams said as late as Friday he hadn’t received an actual job offer from the Governor.
    Thanks for the good times (and blog traffic) Geoff. You will be missed.
