Rick Perry Looks Like a ‘West Coast Metrosexual,’ Says Texan With Deep Knowledge of Cowboy Boots
New York Magazine ^ | July 2, 2014 | Joe Coscarelli

Posted on 07/02/2014 5:54:34 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Texas Governor Rick Perry's decision to stop wearing cowboy boots because of his back pain is just a "feeble excuse," according to the state's Republican Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson. "Tell Rick that boots can be purchased with normal heels," Patterson wrote to a columnist at the Austin American-Statesman, as highlighted by Political Wire. "I lament the fact that our governor could now pass for a West Coast metrosexual and has embarrassed us all with his sartorial change of direction." These goddamn metrosexuals, with their ignorance about "heels" and humiliating "sartorial" decisions. Where have all the cowboys gone?

This guy nails it. With his new clunky eyeglasses and lack of boots, he looks distinctly metrosexual. Maybe he’ll don earrings and a man bag to complete the look,

I was in Austin last week - Queer City. A cross between West Hollywood and a Gay Pride Parade. I went to the Broken Spoke for some music - the place was packed with lesbians from back East. I was in Austin for 2,days and saw one goober in a western hat. Pathetic. I told the fellas I was working with when they asked how I liked Austin - “Bakersfield has better music, more cowmen, better style, better food and anything else you can think of.

New York Magazine is a major outlet for Obama/Dem propaganda.

There seems to be a direct link.

One of the great things about living in New Mexico is that even the big supermarket chains have about 30 kinds of salsa.

Boots or no boots, Perry is doing nothing to defend his state from
invaders. Maybe he will file a lawsuit like Bonehead.

La Raza Rick needs his boots now, more than ever. It’s pretty deep when he talks his “tough on the border” talk.

So far, he’s all hat and no cattle.

Jeez no kidding. You have to wear cowboy boots to be a good conservative? Absurd.

Seven, I’ve been making salsa with tomatoes from my garden and I’ll never buy another store bought bottle. Tomatoes, garlic, onions, salt, pepper, jalapeno and poblano peppers. Man, it’s great!

Too much time in Austin -- almost 30 years if you count his time in the Texas House of Representatives. That's about four times as long as George W. Bush was there.

I remember on “King of the Hill” Hank found out that his mother had gone on vacation in NYC and went into labor while there, so he was born in NYC not Texas. He was so upset. He said he knew something was wrong because one time he tried a bagel and almost liked it!
