I know that the homoerotic nature of male pundits is going to force them th fall madly in love with Rick Perry. After all, he's another grinning, glad-handing sack of shit govenor for Texas with a penchant for macho drag, a sibilant "s" in his speech, an ostentaiously religious man, with a history of lousy grades in college.
