The Righteous Rant Of The Day…

23 June 2011 @ 14:21

…is awarded to Ace for his superb, devastating, and highly entertaining takedown of those in the MSM who are recycling long-discredited rumors that Governor Rick Perry is a closet homosexual. A small taste of a most delicious pudding [big tip of the fedora to Stacy McCain]:

…I think we’ve got a very talented politician here, someone who just beats ’em, and someone who — like many Southern politicians of his generation — defected from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party when it was clear there was no longer a "conservative wing" of the Democratic Party in existence any longer. And I think they got pretty steamed about that. And so I think they cooked up a queer rumor about a guy who married a girl he’d known since, get this, elementary school (though they didn’t start dating until high school).

If this guy’s so frickin’ gay, where is the evidence? Who’s seen this? Who has he shtupped?

This isn’t those gay-friendly northern states, like New York, where they had a gay mayor for years and everyone was civil enough to pretend to not notice.

This isn’t New Jersey, where a complacent media would blow off gay rumors about a liberal Democratic Governor they liked.

This is Texas, where the Big Q charge still carries a bit of heft. Texas, where the old maxim holds that your career in politics is over only if they catch you with a dead girl or a live boy. Steers and queers, my friends. Steers and queers.

Right on, brother, right on.

I had a short, pithy comment to put here, but Romeo13 came up with a better one that made mine look positively dull:

What next?

Proof he’s really Trig’s Father?

Paging, Andrew Sullivan…

SIDENOTE: Ace ends his rant with this line:

And, liberal media, since you’re so eager to chase down gay rumors: Man, have I got a corker for you.

Follow that link. Go ahead…I dare you [all I'll just say is 'WOW'].

    Old news sometimes resurfaces, Bob. Jim Quinn was all over this back in ’08. Linked. Thanks! Great find.

    I am *acquainted with a closet dragster – several, rather, but one particularly well. The family dynamic is very instructive. (One can not use the term “know” safely, not around you, you perv.)

    Takes one to know one, Ran, takes one to know one.

    So, this is what they have reduced themselves to?

    Oh hell, they haven’t even gotten started yet.
