Texas Governor and GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry got heckled yesterday outside a cafe in New Hampshire. “Hands off Medicare,” a couple folks in the crowded chanted.
Before the heckling started, Perry answered a question from a child about how old the Earth is. It swiftly degenerated into a political “gotcha” moment when the kid’s mother (I’m guessing), standing right behind her son, instructed him to ask Perry why the Texas governor “doesn’t believe in science.”
My advice to the woman: Ask the question yourself. Or, if you do intend to instruct your kid on what to ask, don’t do so in front of a line of cameras. It’s bad form.
I’m all for asking tough questions. I don’t like it when candidates get indignant over a legitimate line of queries. But this crossed the line into pathetic territory.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
