Rick Perry Stands a Chance So Long as Everything Goes Perfectly for Him and Horribly for Everyone Else
Watch out, pundits, because Rick Perry ain't done yet. Sure, some polls may show him trailing media and GOP punching-bag Ron Paul. And sure, his campaign ads may suggest a man who's unsure whether he's your cheerful, look-who-brought-ice-cream uncle or your grim, preparing-in-earnest-for-an-end-of-days-situation uncle.
But none of that matters, because November is Rick Perry Month! The Texas governor is preparing a slew of new ads to vault him back into the top political tier that he occupied for about 16 seconds a handful of weeks ago. And his timing couldn't be better…
Assuming the Cain story [about his alleged sexual harassment] lingers (and it certainly seems like it is going to), that Bachmann can’t find a way back to relevance and that Romney stays off the Iowa and South Carolina airwaves, Perry can use the month of November to make his move.
But a failure to perform in the coming quintet of debates could close the window of opportunity for Perry to stage a comeback.
Yeah! All Perry has to do is plan on Herman Cain staying in the news. And Michele Bachmann still not getting paid attention to. And Romney not putting ads on television. And a complete turn-around in his debate performance.
What'd I tell you? November is Rick Perry's time.
