Gloria Steinem said Texans should 'dis-elect' Gov. Rick Perry

FORT WORTH - Feminist icon Gloria Steinem said Gov. Rick Perry has without a doubt created a lasting legacy in Texas.

After last session, when the state's longest serving governor and former GOP presidential candidate signed off on plans to shrink funding for family planning -- and revamped the state's women's health care program, excluding Planned Parenthood from participating in it -- she said his place in history became clear.

"He personally will go down in history as an authoritarian, a dictatorial, unacceptable American," Steinem, 78, told the Star-Telegram Friday before speaking to a crowd of more than 800 gathered for the annual Planned Parenthood luncheon at the Omni Hotel downtown.

"This does not compensate for the women who are suffering from the lack of health care because of his actions and the amounts of federal funds this state has lost because of his actions."

She recommended that Texans "dis-elect him, get rid of him, get rid of the guy."

2. Okay, my eyes get blurry late at night...

I thought the last sentence from Steinem stated, "dis-elect him, get rid of him, get rid of the gay."

3. I have tried and tried to dis-elect him!

I never voted for him, not even for yell leader at A&M all those years ago.

I could see that he was a chickenshit even then.

4. New bumper sticker, " Disk Perry". Both Democrats and Republicans will agree on this one.
