Gov. Rick Perry’s a longshot for the White House these days, and his wife knows why. It’s his faith. Apparently, there’s nothing the American people hate more than an honest Christian man from a mainline Protestant denomination.
A pained-looking Anita Perry shared this alarming tidbit with an audience at Greenville University in South Carolina last Thursday. In a speech that was, according to Talking Points Memo, “filled with Biblical references,” she said:
We’ve been brutalized. Beaten up, chewed up in the press … We’ve been brutalized by our opponents and our own party. So much that is I think they look at him because of his faith.
Yeah! Jeez, Republicans! Whatchoo got against Jesus?
Watch Mrs. Perry explain it all.
