Mr. Perry has no credentials to support such an opinion, and understands neither.

So some people can have sex with someone of the same gender, week after week and still not be considered gay or bi? Unless it interferes with work or their relationships.

So Rick is saying that being gay and alcoholism are basically the same thing, and that he has the genetic coding to be and alcoholic. Wow, that is the most unusual "coming out" statement I have ever run across.

Unless this is his way of coming out as a gay alcoholic while still obeying his sponsor's views on anonymity.

Perry's political career will be over as soon as his current term as Texas governor ends. There are too many skeletons (dare I say "bones"?) in his closet ... he knows it, the GOP knows it, and most devastatingly, a lot of political movers and shakers in Texas can prove it.

He keeps skating way too close to the edge, and one of these days, "Governor Goodhair" is going to go over.

Republicans just dig that hole a bit deeper every time they open their mouths. They can't mount a decent defense for their decisions, so they just make up stuff as they go. Maybe all republicans are stupid enough to believe their BS, but they rest of us aren't. Stupid is as stupid does.

as i have stated for two years now...the democrats just need to keep pounding the social issues...LGBT, women's rights, pregnancy rape...

and then watch the GOP self destruct like they did in 2012...

these far right evangelicals need to be eradicated from our political system just as radical islam needs to be wiped out of the middle east..

You are absolutely correct. It's just so pitiful watching republicans stumble on the issue of rape.
