Rick Perry is the new Sarah Palin, enjoying his 15 minutes of fame, shocking and amusing us all and generally acting like a Texas fool. Cable news loves him and so do bloggers. He brings those eyeballs to the screen and gives everyone a chance to build traffic and make money.
I cannot believe that he will still be a contender six months from now.
If he is, we are all in trouble. This is a guy who really thinks the earth is flat.
