Beware the French cuff

A commenter (Cliff Schecter, whoever he is) on Huffington Post had these unkind words to say about Rick Perry.
Perry, meanwhile, is a "cowboy" who wears Armani suits and French cuffs (seriously, French cuffs?). Attacks stimulus spending while taking a heaped helping of it to bail himself out. Uses taxpayer money to enrich his corporate-lobbyist friends -- and endangers the United States of America by inviting a Chinese telecom company into Texas that George W Bush's national security team warned him would pose a cyber-security threat to our military -- after talking tough on the Chinese in his children's book: Fed Up.
I can think of another french-cuff wearing "cowboy" governor. I've even seen him wear French cuffs, a silk scarf around his neck, and a Carhart coat, all at the same time. Oh, and a Cowboy hat style hard hat, for a ground breaking ceremony.
