Rick Perry Aide: Don’t Open Up GOP Like A "Whorehouse" ~ trout boy

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – A comment by a strategist for Gov. Rick Perry that the Republican Party shouldn’t open itself “like a whorehouse” to new voters has infuriated prominent GOP women in Texas and given Perry’s primary rival, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, fuel for the re-election fight.

Perry is trying to distance himself from the remark, published in the Dallas Morning News, by consultant David Carney, but as Texas Republicans split into the governor’s social conservative camp and Hutchison’s more moderate one before the March 2010 primary, the damage was done.

Carney said he agreed the Republican Party needed to attract new voters. But, he added, “that doesn’t mean you take your principles and throw them out the door and become a whorehouse and let anybody in who wants to come in, regardless.”

Here, in Texas, this is the State of Embarrassment. Ricky Perry and his crew are soon to be in the unemployed line after the next election. Kay Bailey Hutchinson may not be exactly what I want in a governor but she is so far ahead of the current on it is not even funny. I think Kay will be the next Governor of the Great State of Texas.

    At least at a whorehouse, you have some chance of getting what you want.

    But comment goes into the “what wuz he thinking?” file.

    KBHutchinson would be a better governor. Wonder who would take her Senate seat.

    Muchacho del la trucha,
    Good post. Points out the wacko “purist” wing of the Republican party.

    ps. Does this mean there will have to be a re-write of “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas?”

    I am posting this link at the request of Dog as she is saying she is having a problem reading or posting to B/C.


  4. trout boy for your sake I hope Kay wins the primary, but for the sake of the national dem party I hope Perry wins. It should prove to be an interesting primary battle.

    From dog’s link:
    “The Hutchison supporters – describing themselves as “businesswomen, community leaders and mothers” – said Carney’s “slash and burn rhetoric” reflects Perry’s record of governing “through division and an appeal to fear.””

    Hutchison supporters are “working girls?” Yeah, I could see ol’ Kay starring in “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.” 😉

    BTW, I’ve never seen that play (or the movie), I just can’t help bringing it up on this thread 😉

    who’d a thought a college started by Jerry Falwell would not allow a Democratic student org on campus. It would have never occurred to me to even try to start an org like that on Liberty College.

    so y’all know who Mancow is? Conservative radio guy. He volunteered for waterboarding to show that it wasn’t torture. The average anyone lasts is about 15 seconds and he lasted only about 7 seconds. Now he is pretty sure it is torture. He He He.

    “In an interview airing this Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former Bush Administration Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge told John King that he thinks former Vice President Dick Cheney is wrong in his assertion that the Obama administration has made the country less safe.”


    No doubt about it, Ridge will be running against Spector in two years.

  9. Ridge has already announced he’s not running.

    “Ridge has already announced he’s not running.”

    And you believe him? 😉

    Muchacho de la trucha,
    That Mancow video is priceless. Thanks.

    More grist for the anti-chickenhawk mill.

    Good morning. Happy Holiday Weekend to all!

    10:00 EDT am today and 10:30 tomorrow: C-Span airing interview with President Obama.

    Here’s NYTimes AP story with snippets on how Obama is a night owl.

    I sleep better for knowing that Obama is getting less of it!

    LATimes blog: Rock group Queen considering giving Adam Lambert a try-out.

    I don’t watch Idol, but the guyliner guy has loads of talent and charisma.

    Could be a cool idea. Somewhere Freddie Mercury is smiling.

    Furniture master “woodworker” Sam Maloof has died after 93 good years. He was a McArthur Foundation genius and original. Beautiful, sensuous, practical wood furniture.

    From LA Times:

    “Singer Ray Charles also felt Maloof’s presence in his work.

    “Ray Charles couldn’t see my furniture,” Maloof told a reporter. “But he said he could feel that it had soul. When he asked about my rocker [at a friend’s house], his host told him, ‘That’s a chair made by Sam Maloof.’ Ray ran his hands over the wood shouting, ‘I know this man! I know this man!’ On his next visit, the first thing Ray Charles said was, ‘I’d like to touch that furniture again that Sam Maloof made.’ ”
