Rick Perry, I Thought We Got Rid Of Him

What is not a surprise is that Rick Perry, governor of one of the most homophobic states in the nation, is against the removal by the Boy Scouts of America of the ban on gay members and gay scout leaders.  What is surprising is that anyone cares enough about his opinion to report it.  I thought he would be spending his time on a move to help Texas secede from the union.

When he was quickly eliminated from the Republican Presidential Primaries, I thought we were finished with his slurred speech.  His hatred for the federal government and position on women’s rights may have assisted ending with  his campaign as well.

Perry is up for re-election in 2014.  He has not announced if he will run or not.  Many speculate that he still has ambitions towards the White House in 2016, and will not seek another term as Governor.

Personally, I hope he does run in 2016.  First of all, I always need a good laugh.  Second of all, Saturday Night Live needs more political office holders and candidates to satirize.  And thirdly, I hope the Republican Party is unwise enough to nominate another governor or former governor to be their candidate of choice.  They know nothing about running a country, they know nothing about international affairs, and they have no experience with the military and the Defense Department.  And lastly, Hillary Clinton would kick his @&#.

    I agree with your position and where you stand with the facts, but it’s hard to take you very seriously as a writer when you write that you “can’t believe” anybody takes him seriously enough to report his opinion. This clearly means that you can’t believe you are reporting it yourself. But here you are. “reporting” on it.

    Writing an opinion piece doesn’t require the best skills. And it certainly doesn’t require anything that one would refer to as “inspired.” But it’s sad when somebody with an actual point to make undermines his own process in the very first paragraph.

    It’s time to let it go Rick, you’re a dinosaur. FYI – http://OutScouts.com – the social network for gay scouts, is providing a supportive environment for gay scouts, leaders and supporters.
