Look! Up in the sky! It's a plane ...

Rick Perry got that "gotcha" question — you know the one, ‘Would you go to a gay wedding?’ — by conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt and here's how he responded:

"Yeah, well, I probably would [attend a same-sex wedding]. But I think the real issue here, you know, is that's the 'gotcha' question that the Left tries to get out there...We need to be standing up and saying, hey, listen that's an interesting question, here's my answer but get this thing back to talking about how do we get Americans back working again ... It’s the economy, and it’s national defense. And if you’re not really not talking about those two on a regular basis and coming up with solutions on how to get this country back working, how to get this debt under control, and how to put America back into a position of being respected by our allies and being an influence in the world, then you’re spending some time that frankly doesn’t need to be spent on some issues that are secondary or tertiary to the future of this country.”

I agree that there are far more important topics than ‘Would you go to a same-sex wedding,’ though I do love to see the Republicans squirm their way into an answer.

But then I thought, maybe Miss Ricky is just waiting for Mr. Right to ask him to a same-sex wedding and then he’d be delighted to attend … as the bride.

What a moronic response. He's obviously been pre-scripted with memorized answers, so that answer was coming, no matter what was asked.

Perry so disgraced himself during the 2012 election cycle I'm amazed he thinks he has a chance this time. I guess he thinks his smart people glasses will somehow fool people into thinking that he's no longer a moron.

let's be fair: aren't ALL questions for Perry 'gotcha' ones?

And I'd like someone to ask him WHY he thinks this is a gotcha question? If he' (or any other candidate) are going to vote, or sway votes, one way, but act another, it is a reasonable approach.

They just don't like it bc they're caught. ...and that is the 'gotcha', isn't it?

Sigh, I'm so very very tired of Perry. Well, to be truthful, I'm tired of all the GOP'ers.
