Speaking of Rick Perry

Perry's bank account no longer reflects [his] humble beginnings as his bottom line has soared in recent years, records show, thanks largely to a handful of real estate deals that critics allege were achieved through the presidential candidates's political connections.


To quote Jack Sparrow: “Pirate.” Which means, if you look at what the man is you won’t expect anything else. And Rick Perry is a politician. (Or pirate. Pretty much the same thing.)

If you care to know, the article runs down the list of real estate speculations Perry made and how they often seem to be made a little on the shady side.

Conor Friedersdorf and David Frum think this all looks a bit crooked but the National Review's Jim Geraghty says Perry is just constantly lucky, over and over again.
