Another question. This is a gay site. We believe Gay Is Good. So, why start a rumor that someone we loathe with all our hearts and souls is gay? To injure him? Or to welcome him into the fold? I don't get it. Wouldn't it make sense to accuse him of something we do not approve?

Are you trying to get a discussion going with your silly questions or are you just plain stupid?????

The only rumors are the ones I stated before. Two people I knew claimed first-hand knowledge of Perry having sex with guys and a nose for coke. Unfortunately, I have lost touch with both of them but I'm now inspired to see if I can find one of them on FB.

Those of you who called me an ignoramus and moron completely missed the point. Perry is NOT a homosexual. Get it? Have any of you ever been to Texas, or near it? With 144 Texas Rangers and umpteen other legal jurisdictions to hide from, every one of which hates homosexuals with a passion, this one manages serves three terms as governor without being uncovered? Right. So why would we want to accuse this loathsome creature of being gay, and closted to boot?

Several years back there was a rumor on Datalounge that Rick Perry was about to have a press conference, reveal his homosexuality, and step down as governor of Texas. It never came to pass but the fact that Jim McGreevey made his announcement around that time made it seem possible and this board was buzzing with excitment for a couple days.

Something about Rick Perry reminds me of Jack Kemp, who ran for VP with Bob Dole in 1996.
It was fairly well known that Kemp was gay going back to his days working in CA when Reagan was governor. And, yet, during that presidential campaign, the press didn't delve into it.

No, R49, you're simply mistaken and confused.
The press should be investigating any heterosexual affairs that Perry might have had over the years. Men who are as obsessed with their appearance as much as Perry is usually cheat on their wives. And add in the fact that his wife is a cold fish. I'm sure there are several former mistresses in Perry's past.

Somebody needs to goose Anita Perry to get a smile out of her John Kelso, Commentary
Published: 8:05 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011
Anita Perry doesn't look real happy. She doesn't look like she's having a good time.
I think I should invite her down to Giddy Ups beer joint near Manchaca and buy her a beer. I can make it all better for you, sweetheart. They have a jukebox AND a shuffleboard table.
No, seriously, did you see that photo of Texas' first lady on the front page of this newspaper on Wednesday? The photo was shot on Tuesday at Gov. Rick Perry's inauguration. It shows the Perrys marching out under some swords held aloft by Texas A&M's Ross Volunteers at the Palmer Events Center.
Gov. Perry is smiling and doing kind of a one-handed queen's wave, like a man who has just spent $41.7 million of somebody else's money to get elected governor of a state that is so broke that schools are up for closure left and right.
Meanwhile, Anita Perry, who is walking next to Rick, holding his hand, is glaring straight ahead, with a blank stare that hollers, "Get me out of here."
It's one of those looks you get when you're invited to lunch and find out they're serving tomato aspic. It's not quite as bad a look as the guy in "A Clockwork Orange" when they jam his eyes open to interrogate him. But it's close.
What's wrong, lady?
I went through a bunch of other newspaper photos of the Texas' first lady, and this condition is not a new one. Here's a photo of her coming out of restaurant on election day in Austin. She's clutching a disposable cup and a cell phone, and husband Rick is opening the door for her. She has this look on her face that says, "This man is bothering me." Or, "I'd rather be in Costa Rica."
Maybe that's part of the problem. As the first lady of Texas, sometimes you have to go to Beaumont. Contrast this to the joyous, bubbly looks you see on Michelle Obama's face. Then again, Michelle Obama doesn't have to go to Beaumont. Michelle Obama gets to go to France. Maybe Rick should take Anita on a cruise.
When I was a little kid growing up we had this woman across the street named Mrs. Turbyne who used to get what us kids called a "fierce face" whenever we were acting up. In many of these pictures, Anita Perry has that same fierce face.
Here's a good one. It's a picture of Anita Perry at a pre-election night gathering at El Arroyo here in Austin, showing off her red shoe with the elephant on it to the crowd. She's holding this shoe in the air. She looks put out, as if to say, "How come I have to stand up here in front of everybody with one bare foot holding up this stupid shoe?"
Lady, that's part of the job. A little advice, though. Next time, if the shoe fits, wear it.
There are a few pictures here showing the governor trying to kiss her, and her turning her face. I don't want to get into that, so let's be gentle here. She probably doesn't want him messing up her lipstick. Or maybe she doesn't want to mess up his hair. Or he's been eating too many jalape%C3%B1os.
This is not to say that Anita Perry never smiles. Here's a picture of her and Rick on their wedding day. She has that goofy blissful look that all brides have when they realize they're about to get control of your credit cards.
But here's one that says, "Take me away from here before I begin to scream." It's a photo of Rick, really big toothy smile, and the first lady, looking like she has gas. At the time, in 2004, the two were attending the Austin Wranglers home opener. That's one way to make a woman happy, Governor. Take her to a minor league football game.
Oh well. I don't know the answer. I hope her life isn't as miserable as her face makes it look. Maybe it would help if Rick bought her some flowers. I'll bet the state would even pick up the tab.

R49, I'm afraid you and R47 are both mistaken: the Perry/Connor story also hit seven years ago, in '04, as Shrub was gearing up for his reelection campaign, and slightly before McGreevey came out (or, rather, was forced out). R47 is woefully wrong about there not being any gay rumors prior to that, however: I've gotten to know some old-school Austinites over the past few years, including a journalist who's been covering Austin politics since the early Reagan years, and the gay rumors about Perry date all the way back to when he was a mere freshman Texas House representative in the late '80s. It's only a matter of time before something concrete actually burbles to the surface...

R50 And SO like shy Molly to be demure with the most colossal political story in Texas history.%0D %0D I'm giving up on this ridiculous thread after this post, but consider this: The governor is caught in flagrante delicto by his wife. WE know about it because one of the three persons present told us. Right. Must have been the wife, who blabbed after being paid off - with funds from ... some mysterious place not previously accessible to her as his wife of many years. Or maybe it was Gov Perry himself, tired of hiding the truth. That leaves "Geoffrey C." That can only be Geoffrey Ciramek, and if you believe the two of THEM were caught fucking, well then you really deserve Perry as your president, fucking you regularly.
