Have you ever had sex with Rick Perry? the wishful ad, ad hominem
Washington Post ^ | 08/19/2011 | Alexandra Petri

Posted on 08/19/2011 5:44:25 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

No!

Next question.

But really, are we okay with this? An actual newspaper (the Austin Chronicle) is running this full-page ad next week?

This seems like an awful lot of money to spend on an ad likely to result in a large number of people saying, “No!” emphatically and continuing with their days, but then again, perhaps this lack of acumen is why I am not the president of CASH. And I’m not sure why he chose the “Star Wars” font. Nothing says effective ad-making like “an ad (hominem) hoping to find someone who has had sex with Rick Perry, written in a “Star Wars” font, that implies offensive things about Hillary Clinton’s footwear.”

It’s not even a personal attack. It’s an ad hoping it can make a personal attack later. Is this really where we are?

“Gee,” this ad says. “Wouldn’t it be great if there were a scandal in Rick Perry’s personal life? Get on that, facts.”

“Rick Perry Is A Family Values Hypocrite*” the ad says. *We still have no facts to support this claim.

Are we okay with this? We shouldn’t be.

Has Paul condemned this? If not, then he will look sleazier than how they are trying to portray Perry.

I bet they will hear from a lot of wannabes who would be willing to lie.

That is what they are searching for in this ad.
I'm sure they would especially like some gay to come forward with a lurid story which they could use to discredit Perry.

Morrow sounds like a kook mudslinger. He was interviewed on Roger Hedgecock's national show Thursday.

He had no names to offer, no specifics or sources (an ex of an ex, etc.). He said rumors exist about "Rick Perry and his entourage" using escorts, group sex, hookers, gays, being "too coked up" to perform, etc.

Interview starts around the 11 min. mark and ends around 18 min.

"But really, are we okay with this?"

No. We are not.

But, this "ad" is too clever by half. It will backfire on CASH. And on Paul.

Fully worthy of an 0bamatron.

Well you just know he’s going to come up with “credible” reports from people (women and probably homos too) who are afraid to be quoted but just happen to serve his agenda of smearing Gov. Perry...

Slimeball...

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN RICK PERRY BEAT HIS WIFE? HAVE YOU EVER SEEN RICK PERRY TORTURE PUPPIES? HAVE YOU EVER SEEN RICK PERRY PARTICIPATE IN NUDE MIDNIGHT SATANIC RITUALS?

We won’t actually pay you anything, we just want to get it out there he MIGHT have done these things.

This was expected. Well, at least it was by me. I posted some days back that I had heard from someone in Austin that somebody was asking a lot of questions about Perry. Questions to the queer community in Austin. I got slammed for that by several people here because I passed on what I heard. To the point of calling me a queer which is kind of funny considering what I have posted about the “gay” community here over the years.

What is happening here was to be expected. Rumors about Perry have been running around Austin for years. That he goes to strip clubs. And on the other side of the coin that he has a lot of “young and attractive male aides”. Some who go in to gay bars in Austin to score young men for him.

Personally, I doubt any of this. Considering today’s technology there is no way Perry could have been up to this type of stuff without some photos being around. As far as the gay thing it is probably wishful thinking by the some of the gay community in Austin...

We need an add that runs “Have you ever treated Ron Paul for psychological disorders?”

Perhaps another one that runs “Do you know ANYTHING about WHERE Barrack Hussein Obama was between his schooling in Indonesia and his election to the Illinois Senate?” Or, “Do you know of ANY connections between Barrack Hussein Obama and Islamic radicals/”

I think a lot of Ron Paul supporters are nuttier than he is, and that says a lot.

If this document is fabricated and Paul knows about, he’s toast as far as I’m concerned. Or maybe it’s old news: I don’t get out much ...

Someone should go to this paper and ask to take out a full page ad asking the same questions about Obama (of course you might have to direct it more to gay men than to hot women, for obvious reasons). If the paper refuses to publish the ad, then sue them, obviously you can’t allow this for one person and not another.

They will be hit with a libel and slander suit so quick that it will make their head spin. The Perry campaign did not just have a bake sale in June and dive in. Favors were called.
Discipline, focus, Leadership. Win.

Have You Ever Had Sex With Barack Obama?

Are you a female, male or bisexual, or just a crack addict who wants 15 minutes of fame"

Contact CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, ABC or FOX, and they will most likely ignore the truth, because they are hypocrites more interested in their own self preservation, and not "family values", "honesty" or anything vaguely resembling the truth!

Call 1-800-BIG- LIES and we will decide whether we want to report the facts or not.

FYI - NOT!

HAVE YOU EVER MET A FORMER GIRLFRIEND OR A FEMALE THAT HE DATED?

I question that this is a legitimate R Paul supporter. I think it is more a democrat posing as a Paul supporter.

I was thinking a Romneybot trying to kill two birds with one stone. I have been consistently unimpressed with the Romney supporters' tactics, and this fits with Romney's entitled perspective on less elite people. He is entitled to order his subjects to buy RomneyCare, entitled to trash Palin, Bachmann, and any other candidate who tries to take his place for the GOP nomination, and perhaps entitled to attack Perry while pretending it's Paul's work.

They ought to try doing this for Obama. They’d at least get Larry Sinclair to respond, and he’d say Donald Young would have responded as well if he weren’t dead from a gunshot.

This is an inflammatory ad in the State Capitol against a sitting Governor. This is defamation of character and grounds for a law suit. If the guy responsible for this ad is truly a supporter of Ron Paul, then Paul needs to get a grip on it. However, this reads like something out of the liberal playbook in an attempt to knock off two GOP candidates and destroy the TX Governor in one swoop.

I feel the need to channel Clinton right now.

If by saying “seen Rick Perry participate in nude midnight satanic rituals” you mean “grow the Texas economy despite the financial disaster of 2008 and the insane policies of the Obamanation and his lackeys in Congress”...

...then yes, I’ve “seen Rick Perry participate in nude midnight satanic rituals”.

:-P
