That’s what one of Rick Perry’s supporters says about him. The headline asks the question: “Is Rick Perry Dumb?” The story implies the answer: “As dumb as a box of rocks.”
Or, as one Republican governor is quoted as saying, “Bush without the brains.”
And if you’re wondering, no, that wouldn’t be an improvement on the older model. A political party in which “Rick Perry” names a serious Presidential candidate rather than serving as a punch-line (as Dan Quayle did) is not fit to share power.
