Paul Rahe has some more observations on Rick Perry and some good advice. I agree that Rick Perry has quite of bit of prejudice against West Texas to overcome. I find myself listening to Perry and thinking, Bush II just wore out the welcome of a Texas accent. I realize that's just prejudice. As I listen to Perry more, I find myself coming around a little. He seems sincere, an honest-to-God conservative, and I like that, given than I'm not expecting Washington or Madison to return from the grave (they were more classical liberal republicans).
