We’ve Got Troubles UPDATED

March 23, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

So, I woke up this morning thinking about the terrorist attacks in London, Republicans wanting to take health insurance away from 24 million Americans, a hearing for a Supreme Court Justice while the actual Supreme Court overruled him 8-0, investigations into the president’s participation in collusion with the Russians to steal our president election, Rex Tillerson not wanting to be Secretary of State so there, and the head of the House Select Committee on Intelligence scampering around like a squirrel to report to Donald Trump.

And this on the front page of my local newspaper. And it made the New York Times.

 

 

Yeah, Rick Perry took time out of his overloaded loafing schedule to pitch a walleyed snot nosed hissy fit that his alma mater, Texas A&M University, elected the first openly gay guy to be student body president. And that’s REAL. IMPORTANT to Rick.

Perry, oddly, claimed that the election was stolen and here’s the reason why I say it is odd:  because the gay guy’s opponent was disqualified because he violated the rules of the election and Perry thinks that’s unfair.

Holy. Damn. Crap.

So Rick Perry thinks elections are knife fights and have no rules?

Seriously, Perry wrote letters to the editor, called every newspaper in Texas and considering his reputation, probably tried to go get laid, because a gay guy got elected student body president.

Hey Rick, a goofy guy got elected president because he colluded with communists but do I see you whining about that?

But here’s the money quote.  Rick said that the “outcome that would never have been allowed were he not a straight, white male.”

Yes, straight white males are sooooo discriminated against —

 

And there’s this:

“He’s always been a great proponent for Texas A&M. I’m surprised that he’s weighing in. I’m surprised he would have the time to do that,” the spokeswoman, Amy B. Smith, told the newspaper. “There’s rules here. Somebody lost and somebody won, and that’s always tough, but it was just a surprise to see this.”

Yeah, Ms. Smith, it’s a tough job but somebody has to keep the presidency of anything in the hands of straight white males no matter the rules and apparently that somebody is Rick Perry.  Do you think for even a minute that if this contested race was between two straight white males that Rick Perry would have weighed in?

UPDATED:  The Dallas Morning News found a possible motivation for Perry’s outburst.  The straight white male who was disqualified is named McIntosh —

McIntosh, a senior, is the son of Dallas-based Republican fundraiser Alison McIntosh, who worked on Jeb Bush’s 2016 campaign and Mitt Romney’s 2012 run for president. Perry, twice a presidential hopeful himself, is featured in photographs with McIntosh’s other children on Facebook.

Perry is a money slut.

  1. My oldest brother attended AMCT, petered out after a while and earned a degree from SMU about 10-15 years later. IMO, There’s too much A&M mystique going on on the campus for actual education to take place. Of course that opinion extends to Texas and Tech as well.

    ARRGGGHHHH !! What has dickless perry been smoking? That varmint is nuttier than the squirrel poop in Ms Juanita Jean’s backyard. And now dear taxpayers, we know just what we bought with his taxpayer salary. A bigoted jackass who wastes his time on howling about a college election. Guess if he was literate he’d know that there are actually important issues. Guess not. Sigh

    Hey, the more time Perry spends howling about Teh Gayz, the less time he’s spending wrecking the DOE. Godspeed, I say, as long as nobody there takes him seriously. BTW, wasn’t that spokeswoman’s response diplomatic? Nicely done.

    Once Perry tires of this, maybe we can hire someone to distract him with a laser pointer, or maybe a crumpled up ball of foil.

  4. Hey! I thought he already had a job! Why isn’t he doing it!

  5. So he doesn’t say boo about the nazi Richard Spencer “speaking” at Texas A&M but a gay person getting elected president and he has to defend his rich friend’s son who is an unethical, immoral, and entitled special snowflake. Oh, wait…why am I surprised: as long as you’re a straight white male you can do anything and should be protected from any consequences. I’m going to laugh my ass off when some republican decides in the near future to put the human straight white male on the species endangered list. Rick Perry should get right on that since he doesn’t have anything better to do as head of DOE except collect his paycheck. Dismantling a government agency is so easy, any incompetent white man can do it.

  7. Perry is a money slut. Still leaves open the question of which acts he will perform.

  8. We all (sadly) knew these, racist, bigots xenophobes, misogynists and homophobes were hidden out there. They now have a leader and feel free to voice these small minded thoughts. It now has become acceptable , at least to them. We have been trying to raise children that accept everyone and then this! Shame…

  9. Old cartoon: “God MEANT little blond boys to be quarterbacks!”

    Rick, maybe the other guy is a better leader and a nicer human being. Shock horror, but could be true even if he’s gay. Just shut up and go away.

    Damn, these snacilbupeR just can’t believe that anybody else could win an election without cheating. When did that happen? When they started gerrymandering and suppressing votes everywhere they could?

  10. While the rest of America is watching March Madness basketball, enjoying the games, updating their brackets, Rick Perry is reduced to watching A&M do battle in an intramural class election. On top of that, he then needs to further embarrass himself by moaning about the refs over the outcome.

    As Trump himself might tweet about such behavior, “Sad!”

    Leave out the money part. Perry is a slut, period.

    Two things, y’all: first, I would bet a lot of money that this young man is not the “first” gay anything at my alma mater, the illustrious TAMU, home of the Fightin’ Texas Aggies! WHOOP! He just doesn’t have to hide his light under a bushel basket anymore like some former yell leaders (koff koff). Welcome to the 21st century-you’re late!

    Second, you really ought to live here; nobody has to actually WRITE Aggie jokes, they write themselves…

  14. So it’s clear pRick Perry’s brain isn’t working while he talks or thinks. When does it work? Ever?

  15. UmptyDump says:

    So it’s only acceptable to be a student body president or a Texas governor – or even an Energy Secretary – if you keep your gayness in a closet? Ain’t that right, Ricky?

    Nobody knows more about theft than Little Ricky. How else could a lifetime bureaucrat be a millionaire?

  17. WHOOP!

    I was surprised that Perry knew that many big words. And he needs to figure out some scandals to stir up. I mean, who’s gonna get his picture and big words on the front page of the paper? He’s prolly bored in Washington DC so he went back to God’s own country where the right folks knew who he was.

  19. Marge Wood says:

    Maggie, Perry may have a title but since Trump don’t know nuthin’ about energy, prolly he hasn’t bothered to hire anyone who knows where energy comes from and so Perry has nobody to coach him. He prolly gets pretty bored. Oh, and Perry prolly is supposed to do a fair amount of reading and maybe even writing. Right there might be a stumbling block. He could hang out at the library, any library, and play games on the computers. He’ll get the hang of it.
