Perry's response was brilliant; that is not the way that a dumb person would respond, that was quick thinking on your feet.  That is the sort of person I want as President, someone who can think on their feet, rather than someone who has the teleprompter do his thinking for him.

Howard Dean was the guy.  And when that happened, the Democrats panicked and they went to Kerry, who served in Vietnam, John Forbes Kerry, the haughty John Kerry. They said, "Well, we gotta have somebody that can win now," and they did that to themselves.  "Okay, we need somebody that can win."  So they chose somebody on the basis of the stupid notion of electability.  It's not a stupid notion, but when that's the only reason you pick somebody, it's stupid.  And that's what they did.
