The Rick Perry Road Show

Don't hurry home, Rick!

For a governor who maynever run again for anything, Rick Perry of Texas appears ready to hit the campaign trail next year -- for any Republican anywhere.

"I may not be on the ballot," Perry said in a warmly received speech at the California Republican Party's state convention Sept. 7, "but I will campaign next year like I am, in Texas, in California and anywhere else I can spread the word."

I'm not sure what I like more, the idea that we'll see less of Perry next year, or that ol' Governor 39% will be traveling the country working to get other Republicans elected. Sounds like a win-win to me either way. Link via Dig Deeper Texas.

are we (taxpayers of Texas) paying for this useless pantload to parade around the world as an advertisment for how inadequately Texas funds its public schools system?

I attribute Perry's road trips to what others have termed an "altered state of reality". That concept, common to many conservative Republicans - and applicable to every last one of the Republican presidential candidates - leads them to somehow conclude that people actually value them as leaders and listen to what they have to say. In simpler words, they are delusional.
