So. Governor Perry. You used to be a democrat? You were even Al Gore's Texas Campaign Chair in 1988? You supported farm subsidies, and even collected them for your own farm while you were in the Texas legislature? You briefly interrupted the promotion of you book, which criticizes federal overreach, to demand federal assistance for wildfires? Fed Up! You've attacked Texas cities as "Sanctuary Cities" if police don't inquire about immigration status on routine stops... even though your own department of public safety has the same policy? You rail against government intrusion into private lives... but you mandated Merck's HPV vaccine for young girls (while two of your former aides were working for Merck)? You criticize federal spending... while balancing the Texas budget with $17 billion in federal stimulus funds? At first, you supported New York's right to pass a same-sex marriage law... then reversed yourself when religious conservatives howled? You've hinted that Texas could secede from the Union... but now you want to be President of the Union? Rick Perry. What do you really believe in? Rick Perry.
