After waiting a respectful 24 hours after Mitt Romney suffered a large electoral embarrassment, Rick Perry flirted – as only Rick Perry can do – with the idea of running for President again.
“2016 is multiple lifetimes away,” said Perry, who has a lot of experience with coyly denying that he will seek higher office.
While Perry famously soared and then crashed in the 2012 presidential primary, he has said the experience was humbling yet instructional. On Thursday, Perry reiterated that he would leave the door open for another try.
Yes, the guy who is so dumb and goofy that he had to constantly deny he was on drugs is going to run for President again.
And I have a front row seat.
