Gov. Rick Perry, under fire from Democrats for referring to an “act of God” when answering a question about the Gulf oil spill, defended his answer Tuesday and told a reporter to “go look it up … in the dictionary.”
“If you will go look up the definition of ‘act of God,’ we’ve used it in legal terms for a long time in this state,” the GOP governor, appearing annoyed, told reporters outside the Capitol when asked about his comments in Washington on Monday. “Nobody knows what happened, and I said that in my remarks, that there was a lot of speculation. It could have been an act of God, it could have been, you know, who knows?”
