I think people are making waaaay too much of a big deal about this whole $10,000 bet that Mitt Romney tried to make with Rick Perry. It's a figure of speech, people. It doesn't mean he actually intended to make good on it. In fact, I'll bet you $20 that this whole thing blows over by the end of the week.
Okay, maybe $10. No, let's make it $5. Gentleman's agreement, how about that?
Coverage continues with John Oliver in Des Moines, Iowa after the jump.
