The word’s first printed appearance was in 1922, and was in reference to a goat. So it’s apropos that Perry used it.


  1. Oh Jeebus, please don’t let this spell the end of Rick’s campaign. The Republican primary show is the best reality series of the year. If it were on pay cable, I’d pay. And I think there’s another “debate” coming up tomorrow! Time to get more popcorn.
