Why in the hell is Rick Perry in Israel? In today's Statesman, the governor is all about 'building bridges' but the article couldn't help but remind us that Perry is probably considering a run for national office and that he talks out of both sides of his mouth.
Last year, to the chagrin of Jewish organizations in Texas, the Texas Republican Party declared in its platform that America is a "Christian nation" and described the separation of church and state as a "myth."But, wasn't it Perry that has been hanging around Evangelicals that wrote the platform in the first place? Hasn't he signed a certain constitutional amendment at a church? Against some of the things he stands for my ass. Can't have it both ways, Black. Well...on second thought, maybe he can. *wink*
"The governor does not write platforms," Black said. "It's against some of the things he stands for."
