I laughed reading it.

She likes a night of heavy drinking too and still getting to work. LOL

And writes like a Valley Girl.

How or why should we fear these nuts?

When Texas's anti-sodomy law was struck down in 2003 by the Supreme Court Rick Perry called Court decision the result of “nine oligarchs in robes."

Good quote, but as usual the problem with Perry is the gulf between what he says and what he does.

He says he is tall and strong on border issues. Bull hockey, and posters to FR have proved it.

He says he is foursquare for the family. Oh, really?

The basic problem with Rick Perry as a popular choice for conservatives is that he's working for someone else: a very short list of someone else. He is an unflawed, unexcelled example of access-capitalist, Pigs at the Trough Republicanism as opposed to Main Street Republicanism:

If Perry were a solid MOR centrist RiNOsceroid Republican but did what he said he was going to do, he would be a better candidate than what he is: A candidate who performs for a small "audience" of multimillionaires exclusively, to transact their agenda in return for campaign money, while hiding behind fig leaves of policy statements and articulating high principles that have nothing to do with his real reasons for supporting this or that real measure, law, or program.

Problem is..those marriages would have to be recognized in the other states. THAT IS where this is going.

You-are-exactly-right bump.

It's always been about an Article IV attack on the Constitution. Six hundred homosexual lawyers have been working on this attack since the early 80's, when the Texas law was first attacked in a north Texas courtroom forum-shopped by gay NGO's because it was presided over by Carter-appointed uberliberal judge Jerry Buchmeyer.

Evan Wolfson, then of Lambda Legal, laid it all out in an interview article with a gay e-zine ten years ago, after Lambda and all the gay NGO's lost a big lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America, the James Dale case, which Lambda had brought in New Jersey, forum-shopping again because their state (McGreevey, e.g.) was known to have lots of power gays and their supreme court was intellectually and morally "available". Sure enough, New Jersey fell their way, but the Supreme Court clubbed down the gays, ruling that the BSA is a private organization entitled to free association, which may or may not include homosexual, ephebophile perverts as the BSA sees fit.

Wolfson laid it out: Get homosexual marriage transacted "somehow" in one State, and the door would then be open to the Supreme Court for a Full Faith and Credit Clause (Article IV) attack on the marriage laws of the other 49 States of the Union.

In short, the gays always planned to beat down the other 97% of the People with court decisions, never asking them through the legislative process. To date, no election or referendum has ever sustained the gay activists, and they don't care. Their way or the highway, they're taking everybody to court.

Only by himself. I don't think the establishment Republicans will be able to over ride the desires of conservatives with their attacks and lies. As long as Perry performs up to expectations in the first debate it's all over but the counting. If he flubs the first one, he will still have a second chance in the following debate . . . if he can't score a knockout then, then everything will change and we may wind up with Romney as the chosen one.

Palin is not running, Bachmann is neither experienced enough nor electable, Cain never got off the ground, ditto Santorum (unfortunately), Newt--Nah! (he's smart enough, but too much RINO-go along to get along, Huntsman--BWahahahaha . . . ergo stuck with Mitt and a very unhappy Republican base.

No. She did not. In fact, her speech tomorrow is supposed to rip him a new one, without naming him directly. That is, if you believe leaks...

See? The problem with all of that is like Romney, it is the words of the moment when the actions of the past do not jive.

Exactly. It is astonishing that the tea party folks are bending over for Perry.... the guy who supported Vicente Fox's vision for open borders, praised Hillarycare and was Al Gore's campaign chairman in Texas. If those are not all red flags...I don't know what is! If nothing else, it shows very bad judgment. Very leery of him... in a trojan horse kind of way. Just sayin'......

Perry: "President Fox’s vision for an open border is a vision I embrace."

What I like about Perry is that antilife people are calling him antichoice.

What I don’t like about Perry is his tuition for illegals’ position.

There are more likes, and dislikes, but that’s enough at this late hour.

He seems a lot like Bush 43, but I do think he will spend less, and be tougher than Bush.
