Please Let It Be Perry

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has made quite a splash in his first week as a presidential candidate. First he hurled the charge of treason at Ben Bernanke. Then he both denied there was such a thing as man-made global warming and accused the scientists who have demostrated such global warming of manipulating their data. Then he wrongly said the Texas schools taught both creationism and evolution, and that he was not convinced about evolution.
Now, he is backing off of comments he made in his book "Fed Up" which was published just last autumn in which he said Social Security was "unconstitutional" and a "ponzi scheme."
And this is the establishment alternative to Bachmann?
Please, let Perry's candidacy flourish. It will be too much fun to watch.
