We have officially entered the Twilight Zone when Rick Perry is the voice of Republican reason:
NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland – Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s comparison of his fight with labor unions to the U.S. struggle against the Islamic State was “inappropriate” and a “mistake,” likely Republican presidential competitor and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday.
“These are Americans,” Perry said in an interview after Walker made the comments at the Conservative Political Action Conference early Thursday evening. “You are talking about, in the case of ISIS, people who are beheading individuals and committing heinous crimes, who are the face of evil. To try to make the relationship between them and the unions is inappropriate.”
In a question-and-answer session at CPAC, Walker was asked how he would fight the terror group that’s been beheading Westerners and seizing territory across Iraq and Syria. He concluded a lengthy answer by referring to his own political fights with labor unions in his home state: “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world,” he said.
When asked if he thought Walker’s comments went too far, Perry said, “yes.”
