Gov. Rick Perry Likens Homosexuality To Alcoholism

In the following interview, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) proves that if he's trying to look smarter by wearing those glasses, he's best advised to not open his mouth. Speaking at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, Perry compared homosexuality to alcoholism when asked whether the former was a disorder. Perry, who is considering another presidential run, said, "Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way." One wonders why it is incumbent upon a politician to comment on a sexual orientation. Further, if there is a "homosexual issue," is there also a "heterosexual issue"? And what makes Perry, who confuses a sexual orientation with a "lifestyle," an expert on these matters? Watch:

What makes Governor Perry an expert on the "homosexuality issue" is the same criteria that makes Rush Limbaugh and expert on climate change. Don't you get it?

So it's the same criteria through which we should trust Limbaugh over the vast majority of climate scientists throughout the world. Got it!
