Rick Perry Likes To Pet People, As A Greeting
HOLY MOLY LOOK AT GOV. RICK PERRY TOUCH THIS MAN. JESUS. He's like, well sure I'll shake your hand old man, but before I do that, I'm just gonna pet your hair a lil' bit, and you're gonna have to deal with that. Ha ha ha! This is still so good, even on the 42nd watch. And it's not a one-off thing, either: this is simply how Rick Perry greets other humans.
A reporter for the Dallas Morning News shares her petting story:
I had my own encounter with Perry's hair affinity last weekend, after his speech in Washington. It was my first time covering the governor, and I had tracked him down in the hallway to ask about his tête-à-tête with rival Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. But the tête he was most concerned with at first was mine. With a simple swift movement, the man known to many as "Gov. Good Hair" deftly smoothed some errant tresses--before brushing off my question about Hutchison's Republican primary threat.
So, readers: has Rick Perry ever petted your hair, or at the very least your penis or vagina?
