Rick Perry, "Whorehouses" & Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Oh, my.

Nutter Rethug Gov, Rick Perry, as stepped in it. He's Running for re-election against Kay Bailey Hutchinson in Texas. Whorehouse isn't something that should associated in any way, let alone when discussing why the the rethug party should expand to attract more voters by letting people that aren't like them, in.

From the AP (via HuffPo):

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A comment by a strategist for Gov. Rick Perry that the Republican Party shouldn't open itself "like a whorehouse" to new voters has infuriated prominent GOP women in Texas and given Perry's primary rival, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, fuel for the re-election fight.

Perry is trying to distance himself from the remark, published in the Dallas Morning News, by consultant David Carney, but as Texas Republicans split into the governor's social conservative camp and Hutchison's more moderate one before the March 2010 primary, the damage was done.\

Carney said he agreed the Republican Party needed to attract new voters. But, he added, "that doesn't mean you take your principles and throw them out the door and become a whorehouse and let anybody in who wants to come in, regardless."
