Deranger Rick Lays a Fiendish Trap for Himself

We’re starting to like Rick Perry. A lot. Here’s why:

Since leaping into the GOP presidential race, Texas Gov. Rick Perry hasn’t been asked if he thinks gays are born or made. But in a little-noticed passage in his first book, “On My Honor,” a encomium on the Boy Scouts published in 2008, Perry also drew a parallel between homosexuality and alcoholism. “Even if an alcoholic is powerless over alcohol once it enters his body, he still makes a choice to drink,” he wrote. “And, even if someone is attracted to a person of the same sex, he or she still makes a choice to engage in sexual activity with someone of the same gender.”

In “On My Honor,” Perry also punted on the exact origins of homosexuality. He wrote that he is “no expert on the ‘nature versus nurture’ debate,” but that gays should simply choose abstinence. Perry’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment on whether he maintains this view.

Of course, this kind of thing will make Teabaggers love him even more. But the more Teabaggers love him, the more you can rest assured that he’ll never be The Forty-Fifth Preznit of These United States.

Perry has yet to run away from this passage, the way he’s been running away from everything else he pretends to stand for. And that’s the best part: You don’t have to hunt down an obscure college paper to trash him — Perry’s been providing the opposition research all by himself.

He’s so good at stepping in his own shit, you’d almost think he was a Democrat mole, tailor-made to undermine his own candidacy. But that’s being too clever by half. Rick Perry is just a fucking retard. And God bless him for it.

Pfft. You can sit down and have a beer with him. That’ll get votes from the proles on his side no matter how retarded he is.

@rptrcub: Are the gays responsible for Hurricane Liberace, which is menacing the East Coast?

@Cub, Dodge: I found a locust when I mowed the lawn yesterday. Game on.

@Dodgerblue: Yes. Also the earthquake according to rabbi Yehuda Levin. I’d post a linque but youtube has hosed the video due to hate speech. Score one for our team.

Hi guys. Back from the mountains. Felled by a stomach virus, five hour fast walk out of the mountains yesterday. Catching up on the news and resting. You guys were busy.

Ugh, I know how you feel. Stomach rebelled in the middle of a rainstorm down pour with lightning all around while on a deep woods hiking trip. My friends still laugh about that one.

@ManchuCandidate: Didn’t have the Big D. My stomach was in a knot and I felt like hell when we stopped for our mid-morning break. Still out of it a bit.

@redmanlaw: Damn. That’s too bad.

Preparing for deluge here. Ark is coming along well. I just hope the gopher wood holds up.

I had to go to the manly forestry supply store this morning and confess that while assembling my power lawn edger (unused) yesterday the pug stole an essential bolt and ran off with it. Merriment all round.

Sometimes that’s worse. Ick.

No, we had made camp when my stomach rebelled. Word of advice for any hikers… don’t let anyone else get your food for you.

@Dodgerblue: Jeebus obviously hates New York at this point for gay marriage at this point, but don’t look at me: I live in God-fearing Southeast Dumbfuckistan.

@rptrcub: I’d keep that on the QT — apparently God hasn’t realized that you’re there.

@ManchuCandidate: Right and boil the stream water hard before you it for cooking or drinking.
