Rick Perry (the Ricker) is a serious about making another run for the White House. The writers for Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel are rejoicing. This is going nowhere frankly.
Ricker had his chance in 2012 and he blew it. When he entered the race in August 2011 Perry was an instant contender. In reality this had little to do with him and everything to do with the GOP’s unease with Mitt Romney. In 2016, Republican voters don’t have unease about their choices so Perry won’t have that to benefit from. Don’t look for Perry to last long and he’ll be lucky to get beyond Iowa.
