Yes, it’s true. Perry, faced with declining poll numbers, lack of support in South Carolina, and… I forgot the third thing, is dropping his presidential bid. And yes, he is endorsing Newtie. “Who’d a thunk it!”
I suppose Perry will resume his post as Texas Governor-for-life; this typically conservative state seems willing to vote for him literally no matter what he does. If you live elsewhere in America, your “loss” is our “gain.” Heh.
