Rick Perry Not Drunk at Cornerstore. He was being an Aggie

Oh the lifeless blogosphere, the couch-bound pontificators of everything political, have declared Rick Perry drunk at his speech at the Cornestone's Annual Awards and Fundraising Dinner in New Hampshire Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011 evening. These poor bloggers, tied to their computational devices and ass containers (those are chairs, but probably couches or Laz-Y-Boy recliners in this case), have no clue about from where Rick Perry learned his dynamic speech-making abilities.

He was a Yell Leader at Texas A&M. For the couch potato bloggers, snarling down their noses at me and Rick Perry, let me explain. A Yell Leader at A&M requires a variety of voices to get a point across. They can be serious, angry, funny, engage in hyperbole, or anything else to get the crowd at Kyle Field to yell so loud that the opposing team cannot hear the next play that's called. If you're blogging from Great Britain, this happens at American football games, not soccer games.

Texas media outlets, like The Texas Tribune say they haven't seen Rick Perry like this before. Apparently they haven’t been to events where Perry was in full-out yell leader mode, like the Aug. 2009 Hannity Freedom Concert in The Woodlands, near Houston. Here's a video:

The Hannity speech was right at about the time Perry was 20 points down in the polls in the race against Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. After that speech, I said to myself, "Man, it's all over for the nice lady senator t-sip." She never regained her ground after that night in Houston. Perry was on fire from then on.

Perhaps all of these drooling bloggers and senior editors at The Texas Tribune need to hire a few more Aggies on their staffs to explain all of this, because the way this week is starting to look, there may very well be an Aggie Yell Leader leading this country for the next four years.

Don't know what a "t-sip" is? Google it.

Let me see if I get this right. When he's quiet and reserved, he's "doped up". When he's on fire and obviously having fun at the same time, he's "drunk". I love it! If this is the best they can do, they will be logging-in to their laptops the day after the election and seeing "President Perry" making headlines.

The video is also edited to only show selected parts of his speech. Governor Perry seems to be having a good time. It's discouraging that no matter how good a speech he gives that people just pick at him for irrational reasons.

Thank you Joe Hyde for giving us Perry supporters a place to be with like minded Perrypals. I promise my vote goes to the best conservative in the race, Gov. Rick Perry.
