    this time.  I heard him give a speech, recently, and of course I didn't agree with a damn thing he said, but his delivery was downright scary, never heard him like that before.  I think he's been taking lessons a la "The King's Speech."  

    I wouldn't take him lightly unless he reprises his last performance, which I do not expect.  In spite of being a total jerk unpopular with a great many Texans, the guy has been governor longer than anyone.  Take him at his word.  I don't think you'll see the same Rick Perry this time around.

    Ted Cruz president? Pardon my Vietnamese, but Ngo Pho King Way.

      - Texas Republicans would vote for the Devil's grandmother if she had an R by her name

      - speaking of which, Texans who don't like him vote for him anyway because he's "the devil they know"

      - Texas Democrats (yes, they exist) have run piss-poor campaigns in the past (Wendy Davis being the first viable candidate since Ann Richards)

      - blue Texans aren't motivated to show up at the polls because "the Republicans always win anyway" (self-fulfilling prophecy)
