Scotty's mom to run against Rick Perry
White House press corps whipping boy Scott McClellan’s mom, Carole Keeton Strayhorn, the first woman in history elected Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, has decided to challenge high-metrosexual Lone Star State Governor Rick Perry. She’s quitting the GOP to run as an independent. You have to read her description of him, bolded below. (Raw Story):
Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn announced on Monday she will run for governor as an independent against incumbent Republican Rick Perry, Raw Story has learned.
Strayhorn, a former Democrat who switched to the GOP in 1985, has been Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts since 1998. She is the mother of White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan and of Mark McClellan, who is currently director of Medicare for the Bush Administration.
Strayhorn has been a harsh critic of Perry’s leadership over the past several years. She has described Perry as “a weak leadin’, ethics ignorin’, pointin’ the finger at everyone blamin’, special session callin’, public school slashin’, slush fund spendin’, toll road buildin’, special interest panderin’, rainy day fund raidin’, fee increasin’, no property tax cuttin’, promise breakin’, do nothin’ phony conservative.”
Rick’s big stand for marriage – the bigot amendment easily passed last year.
