Rick Perry Clears Up His Antigay Comments At (Fake) Press Conference

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 10.42.34 AM“When you said that alcoholism is like homosexuality, did you mean that they’re both a lot of fun in your 20s?”

That’s just one of the ridiculous questions posed to a fictional Rick Perry after the real Rick Perry made equally ridiculous comments likening homosexuality to alcoholism.

In case you missed his astoundingly off-base remarks, this about sums it up:

“Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”

Oh to be inside that confused self-loathing cowboy’s mind for just one day.

The horror…

Here’s the funny-but-not-that-funny because it’s a bit-too-true video from Funny Or Die:

      Seriously? All this Rick Perry coverage all over the media all of a sudden? And time after time again he says some incredibly asinine thing, each more assy than the last. Why? He’s not running for re-election, and he’s never going to win the nom in 2016, so what gives? Are we running out of Bachmann Santorum and Palin jokes ? Is he angling for a Saurday night Fox show between Huckabee and Geraldo? Am I missing something?

      I think the media has completely misunderstood Rick Perry’s statement.

      Governor Perry looks at HIS homosexual issue the same as his alcoholism issue…
      HE feels compelled by his genetic coding to drink and have sex with men but has the desire to not follow his inclinations.
