Quote of the day: So what's the deal with hippos?

Charles Pierce (newly installed as's number-one political blogger), on the current governor of Texas and former darling of the GOP presidential selection process:
On his best day, watching Perry try to think on his feet is rather like watching a hippo try to ice-skate.
Note: If that line sounds vaguely familiar, it might be because of this gem, from about 16 months ago:
Watching [Ron Paul] try to outmaneuver Rachel Maddow the other night was like watching a hippo try to outrun the rain.
(Hippos. They're basically just a funny animal.)

Hard to believe I'm a reader this loyal and Pierce still won't friend me back on Facebook.
