"...Ever wonder whether the Rick Perry campaign looks back with fondness on those happy days mere months ago when Saturday Night Live would mock him mercilessly? Back when he was relevant? If his also-ran performance at Saturday's ABC Debate is any measure, don't expect too many more SNL skits...."

"...I'm sure there will be plenty more to choose from, but my favorite moment of the Republican presidential campaign thus far was Rick Perry's suggestion that in matters of scientific understanding, he and Galileo Galilei have something in common. Amid the discussion of global warming ("discussion" is probably too generous, as only also-running Jon Huntsman has conceded he's "crazy" enough to believe the current science on man-made climate change), Perry responded to a reference to the overwhelming consensus of climate scientists by saying folksily, "Galileo got outvoted for a spell." In other words, Perry considers his dismissal of man-made global warming as akin to Galileo's defiance of the Pope and the Inquisition on the question of a sun-centered solar system...."
"...AC: Speaking of presidential candidates, I have to ask, we have all of these rumors in Texas that Rick Perry is gay, so I was wondering: Are you expecting to see him at the show? [Editor's note: We spoke with Griffin before her recent show at the Long Center.]..."
"...I'm sure most of you have been checking your old date books to determine whether you've ever had sex with Rick Perry. Of course, you might not remember, since Perry's talents as a paramour likely mirror his narcissistic approach to public policy...."
"...Dear Editor, Gov. Rick Perry has a dream. Far from being like the humanitarian dream of Martin Luther King, Perry's dream is the creation of the Trans-Texas (Toll) Corridor, which he hopes will span from Canada down through the United States, Mexico, and Central and South Americas..."

"...Dear Editor, I thought it was "mighty white" of Rick Perry to put his campaign on hold and return to Texas for a couple of photo ops where he pretended to be "supervising" the fighting of the forest and wildfires. I also thought it was mighty white of the tea party governor and tea party Legislature to cut $34 million – one third of its budget – from the Texas Forestry Service. I mean, did we not have wildfires elsewhere in Texas while the tea party guv and Lege were considering the state budget? Talk about needing to use the Rainy Day Fund...."
"...Gov. Rick Perry, who backed Sudan divestment in last year's state of the state address and lauded SB 247 as one of the lege's best achievements, might also not be too happy. Since UT's claims of poverty in last session's Senate Finance and House Appropriations committee meetings were met with what could generously be described as disbelief, it will be interesting to see if UTIMCO's stance has lost them even more budget-building friends...."
