Seriously? Obama’s ties to radical lefty terrorists no biggie, but Perry bought stock in a movie rental company that also rented porn. THAT’S a scandal!

Desperation.

No one cared about Obama’s associations with avowed communist terrorists who blew up buildings and killed a few people back in the 60s. But that Rick Perry once invested and sold stock in a southern company that rented porn in a backroom, that’s a scandal? What a long 15 months this will be:

A 16-year-old investment by Texas Gov. Rick Perry in a firm that rented pornographic movies is drawing new scrutiny in light of his just-launched presidential campaign.

Liberal bloggers and a handful of news sites have been taking the Republican candidate to task for his 1995 investment in the now-defunct Movie Gallery, which at the time was an Alabama-based video store chain that attributed some of its profits from renting pornographic films.

“They sold family-friendly material in the front but had adult rooms in the back,” said Patrick Vaughn, general counsel with the American Family Association, a socially conservative group that led the charge for years against Movie Gallery.

As a southerner in my mid-30s, I remember frequenting a Movie Gallery in my youth to pick out “Goonies,” “Ghostbusters,” and the like. It was the only movie rental business in our fairly rural end of the county. By this standard, I must be excoriated for having rented movies regularly from the only business in a 25-mile radius. Obviously.

Had I been old enough, smart enough, or had enough money, I would’ve bought stock, too. The place was always packed.

  1. Good point. They give Obama a pass and zero in on Perry. I really despise the media. I don’t hate as a rule, but boy do liberal journalist test my Christianity.

  2. Thank you. I’m no fan of Perry, but this is ridiculous!!!

    • Most welcome. May I ask why you’re no fan of Perry’s? Just curious. He’s not perfect but he’s no McCain, either. I don’t feel like I’m … settling. At this point, he has my primary vote.
