Rick Perry’s brilliant debate strategy to appeal to the senior vote….

Well, everyone by now has seen or heard of Gov. Perry’s failue to recall the third federal government agency that he wants to eliminate.

It’s been termed a “brain freeze” a “brain fart,” “memory lock..” among others. But curiously, it’s not been called a “senior moment.”

But that’s exactly what it was…a “senior moment”, and a strategem brilliantly design to appeal to the seniors in the audience.

Seniors vote as a greater percentage of their age group than any other.  They pay attention. They volunteer. They donate.

And here’s Perry, reaching out to them, and saying..”see, I’m one of you. I once in a while lose my train of thought, forget  what I’m saying. It can happen to any of us.”

Well played, Rick..
