  1. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Why does pRick hate his daughter? Is there no end to the mortification he is willing to send her way?

  2. C’mon father-daughter dances are, by definition, embarrassing. It’s one of their good points!

  3. Prick Perry is in it for the $$$ and could care less about his daughter or anyone else. What a pile….

  4. Now that Rick has come out. What with the Gay glasses and all.
    What more could he do to embarrass his Daughter, Texas, and the rest of the USA?—– I know the list is endless.

  5. e platypus onion says:

    He’s her Dad, fer krissakes. How much more embarassed can she get?

  6. e platypus, I think Ted Cruz’s daughters are even more embarrassed, judging by the videos I’ve seen.

  7. treehugger says:

    Maybe he will develop stress fractures like Tom DeLay did on his DWTS stint [evil grin]

  8. i thought pRick had a bad back. What is he doing on a show that requires Olympic gyrations and strength for dancing?

  9. JAKvirginia says:

    Then again… what if he wins like he did in the primaries? Oh, wait…

  10. He has better hair, so she is al ready embarrassed

  11. Linda Phipps says:

    I am looking forward to that wedding replete with the crotch rubbing dance moves and him hoisting her up in the air in a perfect splits.

  12. That Other Jean says:


    If Rick were Out and Proud, I wouldn’t care at all, and see no reason for his daughter of the State of Texas to be embarrassed. But the only thing Rick has outed himself as is Stupid. And he’s going to practice for his daughter’s wedding dance on TV. Both of those are cringe-worthy.

  13. That Other Jean says:

    I need to proofread better. That’s “or the State of Texas.”

  14. AliceBeth says:

    I am pretty sure she is used to being embarrassed by him…over and over again. Surely she has seen him speak in public.

  15. e platypus onion says:

    Maggie- Gay Paree (the one in Texas) went to Choklahoma and got hisself one of them there jeebus shots and cured him-at state expense of course.

  16. He won’t last long.

  17. Margaret Rose says:

    The show is still saying he’s dancing. He better be good, he’s been dancing around the truth for years.

  18. Oh Linda, if you are going to write comments like that, you have to provide the eye bleach.

  19. TexasEllen says:

    Somebody has to lose the first round. If his daughter is lucky, her embarrassment will be limited to just one night of tacky costume and wretched dancing.

  20. I don’t see how anything he does in this latest entertainment situation could be worse than the time he pretended to be a border guard with his hat on backwards and a gun, riding up and down the Rio Grande, trying to look scary–that, and other appalling activities.

    On the other hand, anyone who has to live with large men and guns, driving big shiny cars, well, they gotta have a little fun. I still think he oughta get a job as a truck driver and entertain the guys at truck stops all across Texas.

    Where’s that State Fair corny dog picture when I need it?!
