We just knew Dick Morris's absurdly haywire predictions in 2012 weren't enough to keep this good clown down, and God bless him, there he is today, in Newsmax, popping up to tell us to "keep [our] eye" on Rick Perry for 2016.
Morris, whom I never tire of reminding readers was flatly labelled a "cocksucker" by WH colleague George Stephanopoulos in his memoir, All Too Human: A Political Education, precedes his watchful prediction on Perry with this observation about Jeb Bush: "Jeb sure doesn’t sound like he’s running."
And Morris would say that because ... ? ... because last week Bush told about 200 people in New York that he's "thinking about running"? Because he added, "Why would I back down from it? It’s the right thing to do"?
Could be. Morris's twisted mind is unaccustomed to such straightforward musings. No doubt they throw him off the scent. (What deeply disturbs me is that I'm in agreement with Morris on his follow-up sentence: "If he did [run], he could win"--the nomination, that is.)
At any rate, Rick Perry is off to a wildly unpropitious start. He has the confidence of Dick Morris.
