Did Rick Perry Try To Rough-Sex Ron Paul At GOP Debate?

Since Perry is a Democrat, he was probably planning to 'donkey punch' Dr. Paul, which is treason.Dr. Ron Paul’s portion of the Internet is goin’ nutz over the rumored grab-ass Rick Perry was trying to strong-arm Doctor Congressman Paul with, during the Reagan Gravesite Debate. Why is Rick Perry such a violent psychopath? Does he just hate freedom so much that he went over and tried to beat up a whiny old man in view of a thousand cameras?

According to the main websites of Middle Earth, the neocon globalist fraud Rick Perry waited until a commercial break to prance over to Doctor Paul’s lectern and grab the congressman’s arm, all hard-ass-like (if a hard-ass can wear a big poofy ’70s wig), and then wagged his manicured finger at the Doctor of the Constitution!

But the good doktor himself dismissed it all, according to a thing posted this morning by industry newsletter The Hill:

Rep. Pon Paul (R-Tex.) dismissed Internet rumors that Texas Governor Rick Perry had tried to intimidate him during a commercial break at the Republican debate Wednesday night, saying that there were no “cross words” exchanged between the two ….

“A picture came out last night, it’s on the Internet this morning, with .. I think the governor of Texas, or something? We had several governors up there, but truth was I never met him before,” Paul joked.

That’s not a “joke,” you monsters! That’s a brutalized old man suffering elder abuse who is valiantly trying to maintain his dignity in the face of neocon violence. ARREST RICK PERRY. GO RON PAUL. [The Hill]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

    The dinglePerry pet-your-hair threat is imminent.

    L. Ron Paul does not possess deep pile though.

    • poncho_pilot

      not a deep pile of hair, anyway.

  • http://wonkette.com ManchuCandidate

    Paultards, paranoid? NEVER!!!!

    • Pristine_ODummy

      They're palpitating over at Politico or Mediaite or whichever shitbag of effluent is carrying the story. Paultards whining about the fear of what DinglePerry will do to their Beloved Herr Doktor, while simultaneously whining about how much they need sleep. Or worrying about all those "lone wolves" that they and the teabaggage have created, to gun down America's abortion providers and uppity negroes and wimminz.

    • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

      Not only Paultards are paranoid, but also fucking delusional: they are absolutely convinced that Ron Paul won the debate even though he got less than 2 minutes of camera time.

      • Tommmcattt

    I think Rick was just wagging his finger at Ron to show him how his father-in-law also does his prostate exams and not just his vasectomy.

    • Pristine_ODummy

      Rick's father-in-law did the vasectomy? I'm amazed he left his worthless son-in-law anything to schtup with.

      Or maybe that's Ricky's problem.

    • TimWasTim

      A vasectomy is a form of birth control, no?

      He was explaining to the good Dr. how to eat a corn dog like a REAL Texan.

  • Tundra Grifter

    That's a question I really don't want to hear answered.

    Meanwhile, Mr. Paul said "…but truth was I never met him before." Aside from the obvious fact that when people say "truth was" or "honestly" or "to tell you the truth" they are almost always telling a lie, that statement could be made by most $20 hookers.

    • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

      Same when you hear any public figure respond in a televised interview, "Absolutely…" or " 'Absolutely' not." Nothing reeks more of ambivalence, to me, than making that the start of any statement.

    Perry was just letting good doctor Blimp know about a great Noam Chomsky op ed over at Al Jazeera, obvs.

    • V572 T-Blow

      Can we get Mr Chomsky into a rhetoric class before he delivers his next screed? Then he could learn to write in pithy bumper-sticker quotes like that other well-intentioned Scold of the Left, Robert "Shorty" Reich.

      • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

        I'll give ya, that the Noamster isn't quite as crisp as he was back in the day (when Trotsky was still around, perhaps). Sorta like Joe Paterno, we love ya, but retire already. Of the Rethug debasers, likely only Huntsman, and perhaps Mittens / Newtie would have a clue about Dr. Noam.

    It will be so great when President Perry takes this approach when standing near Vladimir Putin. Buy stock now in bomb shelter home construction kits.

    • Pristine_ODummy

      Perry's a dickless wonder. Vladi is the real thing. He'll have Perry upended over the nearest piece of furniture and his dick sunk all the way to Perry's tonsils in two seconds flat. Li'l Ricky can show us his modified cowboy strut then, you betcha.

      • BerkeleyBear

        Former KGB is not so much into open man rape, no? Is more like to smile, listen, and then, in seeming to be nice gesture, rub lustrous hair of the Perry with thalium. Then when the Perry whine and beg for antitdote, smile, punch in belly so drops to knees and then, how you say, tea bag for a while, yes?

        • Pristine_ODummy

          Probably.

          All I know is, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near Putin without bodyguards, witnesses, and a guaranteed escape.

        How my dick tate?

  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    From the article:

    We had several governors up there, but truth was I never met him before…Truth is, I wish it were a much more interesting story. I don't even recall the moment that was occurring and I don't remember exactly what he said…"

    Truth is, Ron, you do have an interesting story in that: your first-ever opportunity to meet the longtime governor of your state, a high-profile one at that, finally arrives and yet you have NO RECOLLECTION of how this exchange went down. This appeals to me for Presidential material — i.e. able to hold forth in public interaction and dialogue with key decision-makers and world leaders without forgetting it all the next day — about as much as your fellow high-pitched vocalizer Newt does.

    • Geminisunmars

      Alzheimers much?

    • Nostrildamus

      As if Perry would have ever said something worth remembering.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Does Ron Paul just boycott every public function that isn't a Presidential debate? Rick Perry's been a state-wide office holder for something like 20 years, and Paul's never met him? How the hell does that happen?
