When you have Kinky Friedman, shame on him, lauding Rick Perry's charms, you must believe with perfect faith that the Politico Arena question of the day can only be answered one way. Read on please and tell me what your answer would have been.

Arena Asks: Doubts about Gov. Rick Perry’s intellect have hounded him since he was first elected as a Texas state legislator nearly three decades ago. While Texas loyalist reject the suggestion, Perry seems to almost welcome the low bar, even cracking on the campaign trail that there were few differences between he and former President George Bush. Does Perry’s attitude threaten to derail his presidential race if he continues to compare himself to Bush?

My Answer: Dumb like a fox.

Never "misunderestimate" the wily charm of West Texas good ol' boys. Nor the American voter's preference for charm over smart.

Anybody remember how Al Gore won the debate with George W. Bush on substance but lost it on intellectual arrogance?

Let's heed the adage "Once burned, twice careful," and take Perry seriously. Don't be fooled by those Aggie jokes that will inevitably be told about him. This man is no joke; he is a serious danger who would lead America to the extreme theocratic right where intellect is never a match for ideology.
