Well I figured it’s about as outrageous as when people say that Rick Pherry is a solid conservative.
You can disagree with Perry, that’s fine. But if you look at his total record and say “he’s not conservative”, then you are lying to promote your candidate in a fanatic way. That’s what the word “zealot” refers to, the absolute inability to see the virtues of the other side, when the exist.
If you honestly believe that Perry is not a conservative, then you are a zealot.
