DALLAS —  “It is time to end our policy and calculated ambivalence and renew our commitment to a strong Isril.”

Uhhh… say what, Governor Perry? Say “Israel” again.

“Isril… Isril… Isril.”

This was at a rally in front of Dallas City Hall on Wednesday, and it sounds like Perry has his own pronunciation.

Perry: “Isril”

But they say…

Wolf Blitzer: “Israel”

John Kerry: “Israel”

Lindsdey Graham: “Israel”

Maybe it’s a new Mideast conflict — conflicting ways to say Israel.

Looks like Perry has presidential aspirations again, so he may want to brush up on his name game because when you are talking about what’s going on here — you gotta keep it “real”.
