Poor Rick Perry. First he gave new meaning to the word “doofus” as a presidential candidate, and now the Boy Scouts voted to allows the dreaded gays to join in a vote taken in his own state. Where will the horror end?
Ignoring the demographic trends in Texas, Gov. Perry has decided to go the full culture warrior route, with the Boy Scouts a key part of his strategy. So it’s no surprise that Perry had a press statement at the ready when the Boy Scout vote was announced. Cue the mournful music:
“The Boys Scouts of America has been built upon the values of faith and family for more than 100 years and today’s decision contradicts generations of tradition in the name of political correctness. While I will always cherish my time as a scout and the life lessons I learned, I am greatly disappointed with this decision.”
Have a good cry, Rick. It will make you feel better.
