Last night, Rick Perry was saying “I’m going to go back to Texas and reassess…” “This or that, but the future is bright in the Great State of Texas” etc…
And this morning, Perry says he is staying in at least through South Carolina.
Here’s a hypothetical scenario: Suppose as Perry is leaving the stage, he or his crew gets a call from Newt. Newt says:
“Look. Remember that nonsense between you and Romney during the debates? How about taking some of that money you have, staying in a little longer, and help me get some on that sumbich? It won’t cost you anything, you might win something, but at any rate, you’ll help a conservative beat Romney, and you’ll get to stick it to that smug asshole from Massachusetts. What do you think?”
And Perry, who is every bit a Texan was like: “Yeah… yeah. I like it… Let me send a tweet tomorrow morning.”
I could totally see that discussion going down, with Gingrich masterminding the whole thing. And I can totally see that scenario playing out in the coming two and a half weeks. Maybe beyond that too. As long as Perry has money, he really doesn’t have to get out, and he can still f- some sh- up for Romney.
This is just a scenario. I’m not saying it happened. But it probably did.
