Would You Like To Make A Final Statement?

Interesting.  You’d think that Shelly Bachmann would give it up, losing badly in her backyard and all.

It still says here — I insist — that Bachmann is done.  Anybody donating money to her at this point would do better at a slot machine.

But someone who doubled her up in the vote total has been strapped to the gurney.  Yes, fans: Ranger Rick Perry is going to spend more time cutting his family’s budget.  (Officially, he’s going to pray about the best way forward.  Given the results when he prayed for rain, you’d think that the Big Fella has heard enough from Rick for one lifetime.)

You have to admit, though, he was kind of responsible for the crystallizing moment of the race so far, when he drew applause for killing more prisoners than anybody else.  That, I must say, was a genuinely shocking moment, which you don’t usually get from a presidential debate nowadays.

For that, Rick, we say thank you. And fuck you.

P.S.: would like your thoughts on this — Rick Perry’s final campaign meal?

@chicago bureau: A nice T-Bone, because that’s what happened to his presidential bid.

Final meals have been outlawed in Texas death chambers, so Guv Good Hair is just SOL.

She’s on now, quitting.

Suck it, Bachmann.

Oh my: RICK PERRY STAYS IN!

So to carry the execution idea out — the governor just gave clemency to himself. It’s good to be the king.

Alternately: the Big Fella answered Rick’s prayers — not out of sincerity, but to punk him.

Serious possibility: he draws votes away from Santorum, allowing Mittens to win. Could be a behind-the-scenes play for veep nod.

@chicago bureau:
Seriously the shortest reassessment ever attempted. We are deprived of his tail tuck dance back to Texas.

“Serious possibility: he draws votes away from Santorum, allowing Mittens to win. Could be a behind-the-scenes play for veep nod.”
NO! Our goobner actually believes he can pick up steam in South Carolina.

@chicago bureau: Dead Man Walking. You don’t “reassess”, then jump back in. All Perry did was signal he’s a loser.
