Perry Is So Very…
I keep telling you, people, GOP Savior Flavor of the Week Rick Perry will sink like a stone. Of course, we all hate him, he's an anti-science anti-government anti-civilizational market feudalist secessionist traitor and theocratic dunce, but don't mind us. Just look at the way Bushies like Rove and also the GOP Establishment types are pushing back against him through the WSJ and so on. He's late to the game, gaffe-prone, lacks organization, and anybody who knows Texas politics knows he's pushing on to the White House because he can't count on unforced Dem errors to hand him the governor's mansion again and he's got nowhere else to go. Also, America still hates Bush and Perry is Bush's Second Coming, or I guess Third Coming since Daddy Bush came first or whatever. Come what may, nobody's buying the hick's schtick except for some scattered Teavangelicals, and I'm not sure if you're paying attention but the Tea Tide is out… all out of cash, all out of juice. Nobody attends their sagebrush swept non-events anymore.
