The best little haircut in Texas

Perry refuses to apologize for his consultant’s remark that Hutchison is making the GOP into a ‘whorehouse.’



On Saturday, the Dallas Morning News published an article about the battle between Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Gov. Rick Perry for the Republican spot in the Texas gubernatorial election. In the article, a political consultant to Perry said that Hutchison is making the GOP into a “whorehouse":
Hutchison supports embryonic stem cell research and abortion rights, though she backs restrictions on abortion such as a ban on federal funding for organizations that perform abortion and a ban on late-term procedures.

Perry political consultant Dave Carney said the Republican governor agrees the party should welcome new voters.

But that doesn’t mean you take your principles and throw them out the door and become a whorehouse and let anybody in who wants to come in, regardless,” Carney said.
A group of GOP women are now calling on Perry to apologize for Carney’s remark, saying that it is “disheartening when we see people resort to behavior aimed at belittling women.” Perry’s spokesperson simply replied to the Houston Chronicle that Carney “does not speak for the Governor.”

At this point, the GOP is reminding me less of "Bring It On" and more of "Alive".
