Scary Perry's Shooting Star Is Coming Down

It was inevitable for two reasons: the man is a horse's ass (which alone would not diminish his chances), and 2) today's GOP media talking heads are also horse's asses, and they eat their own kind. Apparently, they don't want Rick Perry for President.

It was only six weeks ago that Perry declared his candidacy, and quickly shot to the top of the polls as the conservative, populist alternative to Mitt Romney. But since then he’s been knocked around for his statements against Social Security, and for his heresies from social-conservative orthodoxy on such issues as the HPV vaccine and in-state tuition for the children of illegal immigrants. And it has been the debates where he has been the main target of attacks from other candidates.


He’s also being criticized for his incoherency when asked about Pakistan and nukes. If he’s having trouble with foreign policy, perhaps it’s because he’s using Douglas Feith – the man General Tommy Franks called the stupidest guy on the face of the earth – to school him in that field.

And if the pundits need more ammo, they can always revisit the secession moment, or work this angle:

While Governor Perry’s camp hoped it would not happen, questions and rumors that Texas Governor and GOP Presidential Nomination Candidate Rick Perry is either Gay and, or, slept with strippers and escorts, have resurfaced [...] And the Gay rumor was first mentioned last year by blogger Mike Stark, of The Stark Report, but for some weird and unknown reason, Stark stopped blogging about it.


That gay stripper thing will be sure to end his dreams of presidency.

I still say they ended when he went after Bernanke.

Looks like Mike Huckabee will be spared the quarter for a return call to Good Ol' Rick to ask him to drop out.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
