Ah, those darn Texans. They’re at it again.
During last week’s debate, the first one to include current Texas golden boy, Governor Rick Perry, the reigning Texas maverick, Congressman Dr. Ron Paul, appeared to come close to blows with the fiery governor.
During a commercial break, Governor Perry strode over to Congressman Paul’s podium, physically grabbed Paul’s wrist, pointed at Paul’s face with his other hand and whispered the words “I’m going to scratch your eyes out and yank your hair out by its grey roots!” Needless to say Congressman Paul was left speechless and on the verge of tears.
Perry and Paul had been placed next to each other for the Republican debate over the objections of the Perry camp as they cited Congressman Paul’s ‘old man smell’ as a distracting factor for their candidate.
But, I digress.
It was during the course of the debate, before the commercial break, that the two Texans got their panties in a wad.
When Paul was asked if he supports getting rid of the minimum wage, after the Congressman answered that he supports getting rid of it he then launched into an attack against Perry.
Governor Perry “criticized the Governor of Massachusetts [Mitt Romney] for RomneyCare, but he wrote a really fancy letter supporting HillaryCare,” said Paul. “Governor Perry also endorses mandates for state funding of hair plugs and implants for white middle aged men who are trying to hide their age.”
In response to this attack, Perry said he didn’t know it was going to be “the monstrosity that was known as HillaryCare. And his hair plug mandate had an opt-out clause for anyone who preferred hairpieces.”
It was shortly after this testy exchange that Perry shows his claws.
