Email

NEW YORK — Texas Gov. and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry can resist the comparison all he wants, but he’s more like George W. Bush than George W. Bush.

The comparisons were unavoidable. They’ve both been Texas governors. They’re both fluent in Bubba and both unapologetically have been brought to their knees by Jesus Christ. The latter two categories hardly constitute a lonely hearts club. If you are born again in the GOP, you have friends.
