    As a resident of Texas I wish I could provide same, but he's known for being teflon around here.

    And he's plenty bright - very smart fella, and especially smart in the political sense. He doesn't need a Rove to be his brain, he's got a perfectly effective one of his own.

    In short - yes, be afraid.

      in Back to Basics' diary earlier today, and W-a-a-a-y last year.

      3 diaries on this in September and October, 2010.  No one listened.  Same reaction then as now: "not another Texan", "no way", "he's too dumb", etc.  Oh, well, the prophet in his own land, and all that...

      Rick Perry is bright enough, he's got power, money, 27 FREAKIN' YEARS IN PUBLIC OFFICE TO BUILD THAT POWER BASE (!), and ambition.  Plenty of ambition.

      You would undeestimate his electability?  After what we've seen in recent years?  At your peril, dear readers.

      Oh yes.  Be afraid is right.

      Torture is Wrong! We live near W so you don't have to. Send love.
