Gov. Rick Perry returns to Texas with his political reputation diminished and his electoral record marred by his first defeats at the ballot box.
Whether that will limit his effectiveness as governor — or dampen his ambitions — will be closely monitored at the Texas Capitol in the coming months.
Sadly the possibility that he could run for governor of Texas still exists. :C
Running for re-election as Texas governor “is certainly a strong option as would be maybe doing this again in four years if the president wins,” communications director Ray Sullivan said after Perry’s announcement.

Praise Jeezus! And what a wonderful way to further destroy Newt’s campaign! It’s like a gift from Heaven.
- Mitt Romney.
You think that irony is only something that pennies taste like. You feel nothing in your heart when you hold a baby.
- Ron Paul.
You live by the motto ‘substance over style’ as an excuse to wear sweatpants with New Balance sneakers every day for every occasion.
- Rick Santorum.
When you cut yourself shaving baby spiders and a howling wind come out.
- Jon Huntsman.
You look like the white person in a Tyler Perry movie and your wife is tired of you putting that fucking Norah Jones CD on literally every time you make love to her.
- Newt Gingrich.
You look more like your political cartoons than your political cartoons. The only thing you have ever committed to is your haircut.
- Rick Perry.

this is essentially what i hear when rick perry talks.
In Case You Missed It of the Day: In the midst of tonight’s GOP debate, Mitt Romney — a member of a faith that opposes gambling — attempted to make a $10,000 bet with Rick Perry like the other 99 percent makes $20 bets.
“I wonder if he had that in his pocket,” quipped Newt Gingrich. Jon Huntsman informed supporters that he was launching a site called 10KBet.com. The DNC jumped on board with an email titled “Here’s What the Average American Family Can Buy with $10,000.” And on Twitter #What10Kbuys is trending worldwide.
As for the bet itself? Well, let’s just say it’s a good thing Rick Perry turned Mitt down.
