A Video Round-Up Starring That "Good-Lookin' Rascal" From Texas A&M, Rick Perry
The New York Times just posted one in a series of national-press pieces since Saturday questioning Rick Perry's role in the so-called Texas Miracle. Read it or don't; your call. But the photo with the story -- Perry watching himself play football for A&M courtesy Electronic Arts, which is expanding its Austin operations -- reminded me: Tied to EA's announcement last month, the governor's office sent out the video you'll see after the jump, in which EA put the gov into the game, literally, against the University of Texas, which, far as you know, had nothing to do with the SEC's decision not to invite the Aggies to play ball ... for now, anyway.
And while we're looking at videos about Rick Perry, you'll find two others after the jump: Bill Clinton today referring to the Texas governor as a "good-lookin' rascal" -- hey now. And: Perry's campaign ad, which prompted Gawker to refer to him as "conservatives' wet dream." Probably because he's such a good-lookin' rascal.
