That's because 2016 just went for a shit!
The think tank here at Falling Downs followed the last election pretty close, and we still think Perry provided damned good entertainment value. Not in the same league as the Newtster or the Hermanator or the Donald perhaps, but he was up there!
Any guy who double dips at the public trough and emerges to sing the praises of "free enterprise" with the gravy still dripping off his chin is a guy you gotta watch. With chutzpah like that, anything is possible!
So tip it and move on, Rick. It's a brand new ballgame for 2020.
And you've got yourself one helluva headstart!
