Why are certain elements of the GOP so attracted to empty-headed clowns? Rick Perry should go back to Texas. Apparently, that state can function with a disconnected, confused amateur. Incredibly this guy has won every election he's been in.
Can someone explain this?
From Andrew Sullivan's blog:
Quote For The Night
"I learned three things in Zurich during the war. I wrote them down. Firstly, you're either a revolutionary or you're not, and if you're not you might as well be an artist as anything else. Secondly, if you can't be an artist, you might as well be a revolutionary. . . . I forget the third thing," - Henry Carr, in Tom Stoppard's play, so appropriately called "Travesties."
That might be the most uncomfortable moment I’ve ever witnessed in presidential politics.Larry Sabato:
To my memory, Perry's forgetfulness is the most devastating moment of any modern primary debate.Allahpundit:
[Perry is] down to 4.9 percent now on InTrade; before the debate he was at 9.3 percent. Remember two months ago when he was going to be the guy who saved us from Romney?Adam Sorensen:
Watching Rick Perry fail to recall the third part of his own answer in tonight’s debate was like watching a thoroughbred get euthanized on the track. It was shocking, grisly and impossible to look away.Alex Massie:
You can stick a fork in [Perry], he's done.Joe Gandelman:
I wonder: Will Rick Perry remember which office he’s running for? Impressions: I can’t see Cain losing any ground with this debate (even if it increasingly seems like a fitting campaign slogan for Cain would be “The White House or bust.”) Romney holding firm. Gingrich waiting in wings as Anti-Perry understudy for Cain.
And on and on and on...
