Perry Fights Back Against Story

This cowboy's not going to sit idle while his opponents attack. Rick Perry fought back against reports that he did not get rid of a racially offensive sign at a hunting camp the family of the Texas governor used to lease. The name of the camp was "N-----head" at one point, and it was painted on a rock on the property. Perry's team, contradicting other reports, claimed that the candidate's father painted over the offensive word back in the '80s. Meanwhile, Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain called out Perry Sunday, faulting him for not “That’s just very insensitive,” Cain said on Fox News Sunday. “For him to leave it there as long as he did ... It’s just plain insensitive to a lot of black people in this country.”
