There's world of difference between the mainstream media's chosen Republican presidential candidate, Mittens Romney, and necessarily skyrocketing Texan Rick Perry.
Born to wealth and position, the former Bay State governor was positioned to run a polite, all-holds-barred, necessarily losing camping against billionaire Warren Bufett's pal Barry Obama. However, it now appears that the ouspoken Perry, son of tenant farmers, may send Mitt back to his new California beach house. At The Other McCain, Smitty reacts to the controversy surrounding Perry's accurate description of Social Security as a Ponzi scheme.
...it’s long since time that we call the bluff on the Ruling Class cretins. The unicorn math doesn’t work outside the Beltway. The more Perry tells the truth, the more he paves the way for truth to leak into the settling pond of our current political discourse.
Referencing P.J. O'Rourke, Smitty explains the importance of 2012.
O’Rourke famously noted that 2010 was not an election; it was a restraining order. 2012, therefore, will be liberty on trial, prosecuted by a Progressive werewolf in bespoke and Gucchis. Will conservatives rally around a McCotter, or even Palin? Or will they be deceived and support Romney, whose hair is perfect?
Perfect hair, indeed.
