He should be at most, a 5 - 10% candidate. Oh well.

but he doesn't have the luxury of losing by a slim margin. If Paul can get within, say ten points, he won't have anything to brag about -- if only because he's a New Englander!

It wouldn't be as funny if the media hadn't inflated his head even further when he tossed his hat into the race. What happens when you release an over-inflated untied balloon? Newton's third law, baby. Watching Perry be introduced to the basics of physics has been too fun.

All of these schmucks that have taken turns driving the GOP clown car have been great for entertainment value, and it has been wonderful seeing each of them propped up by the media just to see them come crashing down. First Cain, then Bachmann, now it's Perry's turn.

Love it!
