Rick Perry Tweets, Then Deletes, ‘Drunk’ Picture of Texas Democrat
Last night, the official Twitter account of Governor Rick Perry posted a photo taking a shot at the Texas Democrat at the heart of Perry’s indictment and veto scandal. Rosemary Lehmberg was arrested for DUI last year, and Perry threatened not to fund the Travis County Public Integrity Unit unless she resigned.
She did not, Perry delivered on his veto threat, and Perry got indicted as a result.
Which brings us to this tweet from Perry’s account last night:
It got noticed enough to catch the attention of plenty of Twitter users, but it was quickly taken down and Perry posted this tweet next.
A tweet just went out from my account that was unauthorized. I do not condone the tweet and I have taken it down.

And, of course, Twitter had fun with it.

it is ok @GovernorPerry everyone* has been a victim of the ‘poopin’ tweet when they leave their phone unattended for just a minute

Clearly @GovernorPerry will not let two felony indictments bring him down, when he can drunk-tweet himself out of the presidential race

If it's OK for Rick Perry to tweet that Rosemary Lehmberg indicted him, then it's acceptable for me to tweet that he's a power bottom.
