In a Breitbart News profile, Texas Governor Rick Perry wonders why his comparison of gays to alcoholics gained so much media attention.

Earlier this month, during an appearance in San Francisco, Perry was asked whether he believes being gay is a disorder.

“Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that,” Perry answered. “I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”

The profile, described as “salivating” by Right Wing Watch, hyped Perry's new look – he's wearing glasses – and confident swagger.

“Perry is frustrated by missteps, such as the controversy over his remarks about homosexuality. 'I spoke for 59 minutes about job creation and for one minute about that,' he laughs,” Breitbart News reported.

“Yet he regards such episodes as part of a learning process. In this case, Perry says, the lesson he took from San Francisco is to stay focused on the core issue – which, for him, is the economy. 'Gay or straight,' he says, 'if you don't have a job, that's not good.'”
