Perry's Confederate Roots, etc. (3.00 / 1)
I guess activists are so into the Perry story because we are just hoping his candidacy will finally wake people up to just how bat shit crazy this guy's policies really are! Perry has the potential to be the gift that keeps on giving for the national media - if they choose to ever tire of Palin and Bachmann, etc.

For example, Perry has more than casual relationships with confederate nationalist groups (see Salon) that tie in perfectly with some of his statements about wanting to leave the union, etc. His recent veto of the ban on texting while driving is another one of those head scratchers that just won't play in states where rational people make up the voting majority. The list just goes on and on.
