Stick a fork in Perry

tick a  fork in Rick Perry. He’s done. Regardless of how he did during the debate during the broadcast, the still photos of him grabbing Ron Paul by the wrist with one hand and pointing at him with the other signal the beginning of the end for his campaign before it has even started. Given Democrat proclivity to engage in Mediscare type campaigning, Republicans of all types should avoid appearing to intimidate the elderly.  He handed them a campaign photo on a silver platter with that one gesture. If you thought Carl Rove’s anti-man crush on Perry was bad before, just wait. And regardless of the disparity in their ages, there’s  line between swaggering cowboy and bully and Rick Perry crossed it. So long Rick. We’ll pick someone who can keep his hands to himself regardless of any perceived provocation.
