Texas secessionist and master(de)bater Rick "Hair" Perry suspended his goofy campaign today, before Saturday's South Carolina primary had a chance to sink his political hopes. Known for his snappy debating style (You were against it before you were against, uh, before....) and his keen grasp of policy (Commerce, uh, Education, uh uh, oops), Hair will be sorely missed for his comedic value.
Not that the 21 or so votes he would have gotten in South Carolina's primary would matter much, but he endorsed race-baiter Poot Gingrich. Now, Hair has some free time to go to Charleston harbor and throw stones at Ft. Sumter.
