So what's the deal with Rick Perry? The Texas governor is pursuing the Republican nomination for president and POLITICO reports that he had to sign a pledge against same-sex marriage today.
So I guess if Perry had to put in writing that he wouldn't marry a man, a lot of people are talking, huh? Maybe it's the hair? Or his having the same name as a gay porn star? Or maybe it's those rumors about him being gay?
You know he held a press conference in Texas, while Bush was in the White House, to declare that he wasn't . . . happy with the rumors going down. He never said what the rumors were (they were that he was gay and sleeping with some guy in his administration) but he did cry for the cameras and claim the rumors were hurting his family. Like his son or daughter (I don't know if he has children) were coming home from school and asking, "Dad, do you suck c**k? Do you do it a lot? Are you good at it? Do you really like it?"
Yeah, I know what the pledge was about. As a lesbian, I reserve the right to mock any politician opposed to my right to live in equality.
