OK, maybe just embarrassed that we elected this clown.

Unbelievable! One would think politicians finally made it into the 21st century and then comes one of the good old boys. Teaching abstinence has proven them wrong so many times, yet, they still blow into the same horn, year after year, decade after decade....

@shewolfnm,
Non Texans don't realize that we have them in droves, holding almost every state office.

If they multiply like that, they're obviously not practicing abstinence...

Frightening...

@firefly,
All we need is one of two of his kids to get knocked up or knock someone up like the abstinence practicing Palins!

@DrewDad,
Get over it. Rupert Murdoch is from my home town.

You're fine.

Mind you, I empathise.

I spent most of my life in Munich. Hitler anyone? (Looks around challengingly.)

@Thomas,
At least Hitler can't say anything now. These folks have time to come up with more.

The problem here isn’t just that Perry has the wrong answer. The more meaningful problem is that Perry doesn’t seem to know how to even formulate an answer. He starts with a proposition in his mind (abstinence-only education is effective), and when confronted with evidence that the proposition appears false (high teen-pregnancy rates), the governor simply hangs onto his belief, untroubled by evidence.


Couldn't watch the video, but I read the above. It sounds a lot like what people do when faced with issues on language.

My condolences to the people of Texas. I truly hope that I don't have to offer those same condolences to the people of the whole US of A.

@dlowan,
Munich was his official primary residence from the 1923 putsch to his 1945 death. That's why the state of Bavaria ended up with the copyright to Mein Kampf. Munich was Hitler's hometown as much as San Diego is Calamity Jane's.

@JTT,
I think your quote captures it very well. Perry comes across as a true believer. When confronted with evidence that his belief is false, he reacts like one of those doomsday-cult leaders when they wake up the day after doomsday, and it's just another day.

Fortunately though, Obama just decided to stop publishing the Statistical Abstract of the United States. That should help protect faith-based politicians like Perry from impertinent statistics like this.
