Perry has expressed bewilderment that his statements drew so much attention. And he did not, as some national media reports said, advocate secession. He did, however, assert Texas' right to leave the U.S., and he expressed sympathy for those so frustrated with the federal government's taxes, spending and mandates that they feel secession is an option.He was stating a fact... not advocating it.

The GOP kicked him in the teeth by promoting McCain, a man who is much more out of touch with common folk, not to mention reality. McCain was a few numbers short of graduating at the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy, not for lack of brains as much as lack of effort. Last thing we need in the WH is a slacker.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
"I'm not being coy at all. I'm not running for president in 2012. Period. No ifs, ands or buts, no caveats," said Jindal. "We have made great progress in Louisiana, but we've got a lot more work to do.""
I would have put Jindal on the list, but he is NOT running in 2012. Look for him in 2016 maybe.

The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
