Among the more amusing comments at Youtube:
"He makes Sarah Palin seem intelligent, Michele Bachmann seem sane, and Richard Simmons seem straight."I'd love to know what time of day this was. These are obviously selective clips. You can see the entire speech at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21z30aNO3cA.
"Whatever he's on..... I think I might want to try some. Never thought I'd be saying that, but holy hell, he's so giddy!"
"Looks like Jesus turned ALL his water into wine."
"I'm finding the drunk Rick Perry much more persuasive than the sober Rick Perry. Seriously."
"we must make President Obama... a wern term president!" (At 5:25.)
"I searched "what the heck" and this appeared."
"You know how when you're drunk, you think you're killing, but in reality, you come off kind of like... this?"
"I feel sorry for the Republicans. They get to choose between a Mormon and a Moron"
"Jethro, did you put water in the concrete pond before you dove in?"
The latest CBS News/New York Times poll has him sinking like a rock. His decision not to skip future debates will only accelerate the process.
