Last week, while campaigning, Rick Perry stopped off in Temple, where he regaled the crowd at Clem Mikeska’s Bar-B-Q with ways Republicans could win in other states.
Aaaaand then he did something that bent my mind. I mean it. Darn near snapped it in half. I had to nap after I read this, to get my head right again.
“There is still a land of opportunity, friends –Â it’s called Texas. We’re creating more jobs than any other state in the nation. … Would you rather live in a state like this, or in a state where a man can marry a man?”
So, in other words, jobs will be created in Texas not by incentives or other mundane economical voodoo, but by keeping gays from marrying.
