    the knives appeared for Perry. Makes me wonder just what is the fear motivating this. Does Ricky know too little or too much?

      I've done in anticipating a matchup between Obama the professor and Perry the goofball is the same calculus the Republican establishment has done.  I think they know that there's trouble when the Governor of Texas loses his own state in the General.  Obama against Perry could very well be a 50 state sweep, given Perry's real record rather than the weak web of lies he's been weaving for 20-odd years.

        enough to fuel this? I figure they expect a re-elected Obama,so why not let Perry run? Most likely you are right and they see him as too brand-damaging. But I wonder if they fear his running and the scrutiny it brings even more? Or possibly they fear him winning most of all. Unreliable unhinged lunatics aren't good for business.

          out that the establishment would rather keep under the rug.  You could have a point there.  But I suspect we'll never know, because Perry's getting his ass handed to him right now, and a huge portion of the beating is coming from the right.  I have a funny feeling he won't make it all the way to the General.  Or if he does, he's going to be a joke by then.
