First, it was whether Rick Perry was gay.  Now, it’s whether he’s dumb.

Politico: “Doubts about Perry’s intellect have hounded him since he was first elected as a state legislator nearly three decades ago. In Austin, he’s been derided as a right-place, right-time pol who looks the part but isn’t so deep — ‘Gov. Goodhair.’ Now, with the chatter picking back up among his enemies and taking flight in elite Republican circles, the rap threatens to follow him to the national stage.”

Said one former Republican governor: “He’s like Bush only without the brains.”
