Anita Perry Takes to the Offensive

SPARTANBURG, SC -- Anita Perry is targeting Texas Governor Rick Perry's opponent, Herman Cain-- who is leading all the candidates in the polls.

In response to a question about her husband's tax plan at the Cribbs Kitchen in Spartanburg, Perry says when she hears nine-nine-nine, she, "wants to call 9-1-1."

Perry also says the debates have not given her husband enough time to explain his platform.

"But I will tell you as a healthcare professional, when I hear 9-9-9, I want to call 9-1-1. Because it will raise the taxes. You have a sales tax in South Carolina, correct? We have a sales tax in Texas. It will take our sales tax, which is like 8.25%, it's gonna add 9%. It's gonna be 17% when I walk out of here to pay. So it will do the same thing to you," said Perry.

Mrs. Perry says she is not bothered by her husband's low poll numbers and says it's all a part of the process.

    Uhhhh, she might really want to think about being first lady if she is upset about these weak comments being made about her husband. Good thing she isnt Mrs. Obama, she would have been in a few physical fights by now.

    Wow, playing the faith card? That's a new one.

    Rick "flash in the pan" Perry is yesterdays news, so now he sends his wife out to cry in front of the cameras and claim he is being persecuted for his faith, all the while reminding us that God chose little ricky to run. This proves, yet again, that the only thing less credible than conservative "ideas" are their flag bearers.
