From "comment" in The New Yorker by Lawrence Wright:
"Perry is the first graduate of Texas A & M to govern Texas. When he was a freshman, in 1968, the student body looked much like him: white, male, determinedly rural.... At A & M, Perry ran the winning campaign of his friend John Sharp for student-body president. In response, Sharp got his friend elected one of the campuss five yell leadersmale cheerleaders. Perry considered being a yeller the higher office. A typical yell is: Squads left! Squads right! / Farmers, farmers, were all right! / Load, ready, aim, fire, boom! During tense moments in a football game, yellers grab their balls and shout, Squeeze, Aggies!
I was inclined to disbelieve that ball-squeezing thing. But I Googled it. There are some strange American folk traditions, apparently. But... why is this in an article about Rick Perry? Why merge that image with him? There's some psychological manipulation going on here!
Note that there is an ongoing effort among the media elite to create an aversion to Rick Perry by making him seem hyper-masculine in a disgusting or inappropriate way. I'll be keeping an eye on this. If you see evidence of this phenomenon, let me know in the comments here or by email.
Best headline of the day.
I get that feeling when I think about Pelosi
When you think about Rick Perry, The New Yorker would like you to think about squeezed testicles
When I think about The New Yorker, I think of no testicles...
Another thing. You know those photo shots of Perry that are evidently entirely too masculine and attractive for the NE liberal/RINO crowd, where he has one boot hiked up on the bale of hay? I wish to start a rumor here. Anybody with back pain tends to do the very same thing. I’ve seen it and know it to be true and just wonder if that could be one reason for the more relaxed pose during part of that stump speech. Not that his pose even matters in that casual setting among like minded farmers enjoying their state fair or wherever it was. The fact that he is recovering from back surgery made me think about the criticism he was getting for “swagger”.
Without getting to graphic, let me just say that it helps to have brass ones. It just might, could be that we need a leader with brass ones to lead us out of THE VALLEY OF DEBT.
Down here we see New York City to be the armpit of the USA. Also, they make bad choices when eating salsa.
‘Male’ New Yorkers statisically spend too much time altogether thinking about male genitalia.
I thought of this the other day when I saw that picture of his leg resting on the straw bale. He's recently had back surgery and was wearing a brace (don't know if he still is) so it made sense that it would help to do that.
From the article in The New Yorker -
“When he was a freshman, in 1968, the student body looked much like him: white, male, determinedly rural....”
Not that there’s anything wrong with that...
Everything that the Left has labored to reverse.
OMG he did crazy things in college, outrageous! LOL!
Texas is just about the friendliest state you’ll ever visit — all of it (well there are those inner city pocket you might avoid).
When he was a freshman, in 1968, the student body looked much like him: white, male, determinedly rural....
Well DUH! The A in A$M does stand for Agriculture after all.
Somehow this needs to be adapted to a good campaign sign slogan.
Well, at least we know he actually went to college and actually participated in events unlike the POtuS.
Here are 10 recent tweets from @RickPerryFacts about govenor’s machismo:

If Rick Perry had starred in the movie “300”, the film would have been called “1”.
As President, Rick Perry will protect the Secret Service.
I think of lack of balls.
“Vote for Perry! He’ll put the “squeeze” on government!”
Lack, or lick?
Those Aggies do have some bizarre rituals.
As a University of Texas alumnus (a Texas-Ex, but I graduated), I'll point out that those rival Aggies have some outstanding rituals like Aggie Muster and Silver Taps.
The school produced more line officers in WWII than West Point and Annapolis combined. It has some world-class academic programs, particularly in engineering.
The Aggies have more 'traditions' than any other university I can think of, by a multiple of four or five.
Some are glorious and inspirational, like Silver Taps and Aggie Muster. Some strike people who aren't Aggies as a little odd.
Let's just hope the New Yorker doesn't get into Corp's "J--- Jar" tradition before the UT game. That makes "Squeeze 'em, Ags" quite tame.
All this info about the college days of a guy who entered the race days ago and no info about the sitting president.
Aggies are weirdos. No doubt about that.
