Affirmative Action for Rick Perry
CNN announced last week that Rick Perry will be participating in their January 19th debate in South Carolina.
This despite CNN’s previously announced criteria for inclusion; that to be invited a candidate must have finished at least fourth in the Iowa or New Hampshire primaries, or polled at least 7% in three national or South Carolina polls in the month of January. Perry has met neither.
In light of this, maybe the State of Virginia will decide to allow Perry to appear on the primary ballot there, much as the State of Texas has allowed mentally handicapped persons to be executed.
