    Rick Perry moves ahead of Mitt Romney in race for GOP nomination in new poll

    Rick Perry moves ahead of Mitt Romney in race for GOP nomination in new poll - The Washington Post

    Honestly, this made me think of Rudy Giuliani's speech to the National Press Club today ( I listened on NPR). In the Q&A, he said "At this point in the 2008 race, I was the nominee and I was going against Hillary Clinton."

    He also hasn't done any debating yet. It's too soon.

    I guarantee you that Obama is crossing his fingers for Perry's success.

    He shouldn't be. Perry has a chance to beat him. If Obama's going to have a chance, his job plan better work or else a wet paper bag could beat him.

    Reasons Rick Perry is the perfect Republican:

    1. He shoots wild animals dead with a laser-sighted handgun.

    2. According to his Texas A&M transcript he flunked organic chem II, and got a D in economics.

    3. Also according to his transcript, he got an A in something called "world military systems." Odd class for an aspiring veterinarian...

    4. He doesn't go for any of that global warming stuff, even as his home state suffers record-breaking droughts, heatwaves, and wildfires consistent with the theory.

    5. He makes veiled threats of physical assault to central bankers.

    6. Some of his biggest backers and organizers believe God talks to them personally- and that the Democratic party is controlled by the demon Jezebel. Seriously.

    Perry's too out there, I doubt he could pull a broad enough support base to beat Obama. Perry pulling ahead of Romney probably has more to do with his opponents' agitation against him for his supposed role in Obamacare than with people actually identifying with Perry.

    He's out there, but he's not actually crazy (unlike say, Bachmann or Cain). He does a good job of hiding how out there he is. I think it has to do with him having the best hair out of all the candidates, but I can't be certain.

    The irony is that Perry is just like Romney. They both flip flop like mad once they're convinced that another position will be more advantageous to their careers. The main differences are that Romney is about 10x smarter and Perry is a 10x better actor.
