I see Howard Dean, the only Democratic politician ever to retire himself trying to imitate a braying jackass – or perhaps he really is a braying jackass – says the “ruthless Bush team will take Perry out.”
Of course, the columns of political headlines, “Obama at 48 percent in New Jersey,” “Obama under water in Vermont,” “Obama approval less than 50 percent in NYC,” might give Braying Howard reason to be desperate.
But the word from Tejas is that that Bush and Perry are not friends – but they are not enemies. Perry says Bush told him to run for President. Bush is saying nothing, but while he is not publicly enthusiastic about a Perry run for the White House, George Bush has even kept his mouth shut about the nation-wrecker, Barack H. Obama.
