There a fairly famous case in Texas. It’s called Lawrence v. Texas and it threw out Texas’ anti-sodomy law.
It’s so famous that Rick Perry wrote about it in his book.
When asked about it yesterday in Cedar Rapids, Perry responded —
“I wish I could tell you I knew every Supreme Court case. I don’t … I’m not a lawyer,” Perry told the person who posed the question. “We can sit here and play ‘I gotcha’ questions on ‘What about this Supreme Court case’ or whatever, but let me tell you — you know and I know that the problem in this country is spending in Washington, D.C. It’s not some Supreme Court case.”
Asked directly later by a journalist whether he knew what the case is, Perry said, “I don’t.” He added, “I’m not taking the bar exam.”
As my freind Sharon says, “Thank the lord he isn’t taking the bar exam because the folks at TABC just don’t hand out bartender licenses.”
It was in your damn book, Rick. I know you didn’t write it but at least you could have had someone read it to you.
And this is fun —
Asked Thursday if there was any Iowa outcome that could change his determination to press on with his campaign, Perry said, “That’s God’s will. There might be an outcome that He decides that I wouldn’t go on.”
Yeah, I think God has had his little fun with you, Rick. You can come home now.
Thanks to Sharon for the heads-up.
