Rick Perry on CNN: I’m second in the “Hot Gas” reader poll, you know

posted at 6:35 pm on December 7, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite. My memory’s hazy but, as I recall, “Hot Gas” was one of the three finalists when we sat down to name the site in early 2006. Michelle had the trump card so we ended up where we ended up, but I’ve always wondered what might have been if my personal preference had won out. Imagine it: “Gassy Air.” Five years later, Perry would have turned that into “Gassy Gas” in today’s interview, which would have been a clip for the ages. Ah well.

This is, without question, the greatest HA near-name-check of all time. And yes, for the record, Perry is indeed in second place in the new Hot Gas reader survey.

Hey, AP, how bad does this hurt?

conservative website, the Michelle Malkin-founded, Ed Morrissey-run Hot Air.

beatcanvas on December 7, 2011 at 6:38 PM

Dude’s a hero. This is why I want him to lead the free world. He’d drive these euroweenies that I share a continent with around the twist, he would.

Johnimus on December 7, 2011 at 6:38 PM

Let me guess….APs choice for the name was Warm Fart.

BobMbx on December 7, 2011 at 6:38 PM

D’oh!

catquilt on December 7, 2011 at 6:38 PM

Thanks Governor Jerry for that plug.

SteveMG on December 7, 2011 at 6:38 PM

Don’t forget, Allahpundit, that you were in Taiwan New.

Blake on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

I hope IF he should be so lucky as to be the VP nominee he doesn’t mix up IRAN/IRAQ… , but the more I think about it more I would love to see him debate Biden…a comedy of errors!!!1

RedLizard64 on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Dec 7th, now truly a day which will live in infamy.

Just A Grunt on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

cmsinaz on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Hot Gas is the site our banned trolls end up in, for life.

And Allah, Michelle made the right choice.

LOL. Three cheers for Hot Gas!

Awesome. Time for a Rebrand guys…

Lawdawg86 on December 7, 2011 at 6:40 PM

Perry let one rip!!! :-p

NerwenAldarion on December 7, 2011 at 6:40 PM

I’m wondering two things: 1) do we want a President who cares what the names of websites are, and; 2) didn’t Obama think he was in Texas yesterday when he was in Kansas?

Montjoie on December 7, 2011 at 6:40 PM

Ice cream.

This dude is an absolute buffoon. How do you confound Hotair with Hotgas?

milemarker2020 on December 7, 2011 at 6:40 PM

“HotAir” was an inspired choice; mustabeen divine providence or something.

So Perry reads this site, or staff gives him a daily update?

Skandia Recluse on December 7, 2011 at 6:40 PM

Now he did it! Not only is he toast, he is burnt Texas toast.

Go home Rick, the gas jets are out of fuel.

cozmo on December 7, 2011 at 6:40 PM

Hahahahaha! OMG that is too funny

Zetterson on December 7, 2011 at 6:41 PM

I’m… speechless.

OneGyT on December 7, 2011 at 6:41 PM

Ace of Hearts is jealous that Perry mentioned another blog.

Mark1971 on December 7, 2011 at 6:41 PM

Might as well change the blog name now, because this is what you’ll be known as to me from now on.

Jim-Rose on December 7, 2011 at 6:41 PM

I don’t mind. I’m a lesser attraction and okay with that.

Allahpundit on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Allah don’t beat yourself up. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

upinak on December 7, 2011 at 6:41 PM

That’s pretty funny. But it’s nice to know HotAir is well known.

ButterflyDragon on December 7, 2011 at 6:42 PM

How do you confound Hotair with Hotgas?

milemarker2020 on December 7, 2011 at 6:40 PM

maybe he was hoping it goes BOOM!

I don’t mind. I’m a lesser attraction and okay with that.

Allahpundit on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Aw, for what its worth Allah, I come here for your posts. Ed is kind of a dork.

Gassy As%…!

Seven Percent Solution on December 7, 2011 at 6:43 PM

Hot Gas is actually a different site run by a guy named Buddhapundit.

Red Cloud on December 7, 2011 at 6:43 PM

I can’t stop laughing!!!!

Cindy Munford on December 7, 2011 at 6:43 PM

I kinda feel sorry for him…

equanimous on December 7, 2011 at 6:44 PM

Perry is just playing the Kevin Huntsman game with Hot Air…

… if we can dish it out, we should be able to take it!

SD Tom on December 7, 2011 at 6:45 PM

This is Perry, full of Hot Gas, grasping at straws as his campaign whithers away.

jp on December 7, 2011 at 6:45 PM

Double Facepalm… Wow

WhoU4 on December 7, 2011 at 6:45 PM

Hey Allah, did you guys consider calling it “Fart Gas”? I mean, can’t you just see Governor Perry telling Wolf Blitzer with a straight face “I’m way up in the fartgas.com poll!”?

radjah shelduck on December 7, 2011 at 6:46 PM

Here is hoping he read some of my comments and takes them to heart. Would be nice to have one more person worthy of voting for.

astonerii on December 7, 2011 at 6:47 PM

As funny as the title of this thread is, it doesn’t come close to this line.

Perry also made a rather offhand, extremely off-color reference, telling Blitzer that it’s “Newt’s time in the barrel.”

I don’t mind. I’m a lesser attraction and okay with that.

Allahpundit on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Are you eeyore 24/7?

cozmo on December 7, 2011 at 6:47 PM

Michelle tweeted this one, too funny. The poor guy needs to calm down and gather his thoughts or he’s gonna get shredded by the others and the state run media.

Zorro on December 7, 2011 at 6:47 PM

Allah and Ed with those fast chili fingers on the keyboards — bound to produce that kind of blowback.

Feedie on December 7, 2011 at 6:47 PM

Its embarrassing to say that he is my governor and I have voted for him every time he’s run. Makes me wonder WTH was I thinking????

Facepalm indeed!

This whole article has me in a giggle fit. :)

I haven’t laughed this hard in months !!! THAT was funny !!!

stenwin77 on December 7, 2011 at 6:48 PM

Nobody light a match.

Cicero43 on December 7, 2011 at 6:48 PM

A little Beano should help clear that up for Perry.

Flange on December 7, 2011 at 6:48 PM

“This race is fluid…hot gas?!?!?”

OH.MY.GAWD.

Perry is one sick puppy!

Lance Murdock on December 7, 2011 at 6:48 PM

He really isn’t very bright, is he?

stenwin77 on December 7, 2011 at 6:49 PM

lol.

Hot Gas seems like a slam on HA.

El_Terrible on December 7, 2011 at 6:49 PM

All he needs to do to further lose the young voters is add the in front of anything technological and then butcher it like my mother does:

–Do you type things on the Tweeter?

–Do you know how to post movies on the Spacebook?

–Do you use the Firefax to look on the internet?

–How much does a stamp cost to send the e-mail?

The day I start prefacing those types of things with the I’m just going to buy some black socks, hitch my pants up to my chest, and sit in a lawn chair drinking Metamusil until the day I die.

Sounds like a staffer tried to cram it in last minute and he had never heard of Hot Air before.

Eric Erickson hardest hit.

“But it’s nice to know HotAir is well known.”

LoL..Not according to my wife..:)

Dire Straits on December 7, 2011 at 6:55 PM

Inexplicable. Been in meetings with him where everyone talked about comments made about the race on Hot Air. The term Hot Gas wasn’t even mentioned, even as a joke or as criticism to the anti-Perry posters. He knows this site, don’t know where the hell he got that from.

This blog is read daily by almost all the campaigns, BTW, a testament to its importance to them in understanding conservative thought and voters. I say almost all, since I doubt that Emilio Huntsman’s campaign even knows we exist.

TXUS on December 7, 2011 at 6:55 PM

So the “Hot Gas” poll shows Perry is 2nd in… Iowa?

Punchenko on December 7, 2011 at 6:55 PM

“Hot Gas” or “Hot Air”…close enough for me.

I just decided…I’m supporting Perry.

Rick Perry, the genuine humble honest conservative.

Rick Perry is the best. It was a great interview with Wolf. He did a really good job at the Jewish forum today too.

Go Perry 2012

HotAir = HotGas :-).

I hope Rick Perry is given some cabinet post. We need him through what’s coming.

beatcanvas on December 7, 2011 at 6:56 PM

At first I thought this was a decent, and pretty diverse field of candidates. Now I think they’re all doomed. Mainly because they’re real human beings, running against a massive media-organizer complex that has every tool of modern technology, including the Fed’s digital printing press, to destroy them.

That said: I never thought two establishment blow-up sex toys (which is what most establishment Republicans turn into when negotiating with Democrats) would run away with it, though. Not this year.

What a tragedy this election is becoming.

bobcalco on December 7, 2011 at 6:56 PM

I don’t mind. I’m a lesser attraction and okay with that.

Allahpundit on December 7, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Going really far out on a limb here but…I think you don’t get as many namechecks because, erm, your name contains the letters ‘allah’ in them.

I can just imagine a major politician quoting ‘Allahpundit from Hot Air / Gas’. Cue days of rage, imams daring to imply the Prophet passes wind, riots in Karachi, koran-toilet interfaces, UN sanctions against cat food manufacturers…You know, the usual.
