Rick Perry Charms Local Texas Media in 2005

There's a little dispute here. Perry seems to be repeating the reporter's words -- "I'm not going to wait that long" -- but the reporter (and the rest of the Texas media) claims the reporter said "I can't win on this one."

Eh, doesn't matter all that much either way. Clearly Perry thought he'd said "I'm not going to wait that long."

Listen to the reporter's ponderous, pompous voice and tell me he didn't deserve this.

Now, I'm looking at Perry in the two video clips at Hot Air. Both are worth watching, to get a sense of him. Glenn Beck seems ready to join Team Perry.

It's uncanny how much he looks and sounds like Bush. That's not a good thing, of course. And that "Adios mofo" line is pure Bush.

But before anyone freaks out too much, bear in mind the liberals' joke will be "They're bringing up another governor from Texas who was a pilot."


But bear in mind that's a joke. The liberals will mean it, of course -- they're dumb -- but how many people exactly do you think are going to be persuaded by the insinuation that this is the same person in (thin) disguise, or a clone, or a cyborg?

Probably not many.

But there are uncanny similarities.

Perry married his high school sweetheart. That's not exactly Bush's story, but I'll count it as ballpark.

Perry was an Air Force Pilot. Thankfully, not TANG, but USAF. Served 72-77 flying C-130 transports. I checked the dates of his education and I don't see any Vietnam dodging.

Perry also gives the press corps "funny" nicknames, like "mofo," "stupid ass," and "Professor Dickweed." (Ricky Bobby joke.)

Anyway. I have inside information that Governor Perry is "giving a presidential run appropriate consideration."

My source for that insider tip is Governor Perry himself, who says it on Cavuto.

Oh, and Rich Lowry just saw Perry give a speech, and thinks it sounds like it could easily be a presidential stump speech.

Thanks to Dave In Texas.
