On Sautrday in the big, heat-warped skillet of the state that is Texas, Anita Perry said a true thing about abortion possibly being “a women’s right” that she’ll probably regret for the next few days when she has to watch her husband sulk over his morning cornflakes. Either that, or the GOP is the elaborate trolling corps we’ve always believed.
Speaking to Evan Smith at the 2013 Texas Tribune Festival, Perry said that abortion, an issue that Governor Rick Perry has made the cornerstone of his entire reign as Texas’s most important ten-gallon hat wearer, “could be a women’s right.” Wait, what?? For realz? But, like, Mrs. Perry, doesn’t your husband think abortion is everybody’s business except a woman’s? Isn’t what you’re saying right now sort of a big deal?
