Rick Perry Clueless About the Sodomy Laws that Protect

Like we needed more proof that Rick Perry will never be the Caucus choice. During a C-Span interview in Iowa, Perry seemed completely oblivious in regards to Lawrence v. Texas, the 2003 Supreme Court Case that overturned Texas sodomy law while he was governor.

When an audience member asked a question about the famous case, Rick Perry repeated the question including the name of the case, but then stumbled. “We have a federal government that is out of control from the standpoint of spending,” Perry began his response, “and I wish I could tell you I knew every Supreme Court case… I’m not a lawyer but here’s what I do know, I know they’re spending too much money in Washington, D.C.” From here, Perry launches in to a stump speech about spending.

Yeah, too bad Rick has totally weighed in on the case many time before. Sneaky, sneaky…

In any case, you’d think a guy accused of being embroiled in many gay affairs would know a thing or two about the laws which allow him to do so. Then again, we’re talking about Rick Perry here, so maybe that’s just expecting too much.
