Even though Michele Bachmann won the straw poll in Iowa, she has been trailing badly since then, and is struggling now in fourth place behind Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Ron Paul. Perry is currently the Tea Party flavor of the month, but it will be interesting to see how he does now that he is actually campaigning and has to face the other candidates in a debate this week.
UPDATE: Perry might back out of the debate.
I believe with Texas burning, God has given Perry a very strong message.
His picture on that LA Times article makes him look like the love child of Reagan and Bush Jr. Or maybe a Photoshop blending of the two…
I equate Perry with Randall Flagg (the Dark Man from Stephen King’s book “The Stand”).
And hey, Texas has been burning for quite some time now. Odd coincidence that he would just now decide he needed to be there to do…. something?
