If Texas Gov. Rick Perry decides to run for president, his team is more than prepared for a re-airing of unsubstantiated rumors, circulated on and off for years in the Lone Star State, about his personal life.
The crusted-over rumors were in the ether among some attendees at a dinner hosted last week by the Manhattan County GOP, where Perry gave the keynote speech. The rumors, which have never been proven despite repeated review by media outlets, were addressed by the governor himself in a lengthy 2004 American-Statesman story that is sure to see new life if he runs.
The claims, which had made the rounds for months by the time the story was written, included rumors that Perry and his wife Anita had split, and that the governor was gay.
Rev ’em up!
Republican Rah Rah: Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has never lost an election and is eyeing a possible GOP presidential bid, has an interesting resume for stirring up the troops: He was a “yell” leader (a Southern term for cheerleader) at Texas A&M games when he was a student there.
There ya go!No real man would ever be a cheerleader, right? Still waiting for that first story in the mainstream media reporting on first-hand accounts of Obama having sex with men on the down low in Chicago and Washington before he was elected to the Senate. One man, Larry Sinclair, spoke publicly to the Washington news media of his sexual and drug encounters with Obama only to find himself the subject of an illegal arrest carried out by Joe Biden's son while he was Delaware's Attorney General and buried in lawsuits by the very same law D.C. law firm that has defended Obama's efforts to keep his past records from being released to the public. The other man doing the talking, a choir director at Obama's controversial church, was executed shortly before the Iowa caucus. His murder remains unsolved. The Omedia refuses to interview Donald Young's mother about her son's close relationship with Obama. Hypocrisy in coverage by the Omedia never changes.
