A few days ago, Rick Perry gave a kinda-sorta apology for comparing being gay with alcoholism. Today, he backpedaled even more:

“I got asked about an issue, and instead of saying, ‘You know what, we need to be a really respectful and tolerant country, and get back to talking about, whether you’re gay or straight you need to be having a job, and those are the focuses I want to be involved with,’ instead of getting — which I did, I readily admit, I stepped right in it,” he said.

This is not a sign that Perry is going to "evolve" on gay marriage anytime soon, but it is a sign that you can't say stupid shit about gay people in politics anymore.
