Quote of the Day

"Obviously gay marriage is not fine with me."Texas Governor Rick Perry.

OBVIOUSLY. Because, in addition to being garbage governor of the great state of Texas, he is also a Semi-Professional, Full-Tilt, World-Class, Grade-A, Award-Winning, Multi-Multihyphenate Dipfuck of Epic Proportions.

To provide some superfun context for this quote, Perry was "clarifying" previous remarks about same-sex marriage being legalized in New York, which sounded like he might whooooooooops actually support it. Heavens to Mergatroyd!
Texas Gov. Rick Perry wants you to know he isn't fine with gay marriage.

In an interview with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins he hedged controversial comments made at a dinner in Aspen last week when he said, "Our friends in New York six weeks ago passed a statute that said marriage can be between two people of the same sex. You know what? That's New York, and that's their business, and that's fine with me."

"I probably needed to add a few words after that 'it's fine with me,'" Perry admitted to Perkins Thursday.

And he repeated his commitment to the 10th amendment as well as his conviction that marriage should be between a man and a woman. "It's fine with me that a state is using their sovereign rights to decide an issue. Obviously gay marriage is not fine with me. My stance hasn't changed."
So, make no mistake, people: Rick Perry is STILL A BIGOT!
