A long time ago, I worked for a guy named Will Cain, who owned three newspapers – The Anna-Melissa Tribune, The Prosper Press, and The Van Alstyne Leader – and a seasonal magazine. I worked there for a few months before getting a job offer at The Dallas Morning News.
Now you can see Will’s writing on his blog – Cain and Table – and sometimes on TheBlaze.com and in the National Review. He also makes appearances on TV – often as of late on CNN, but also on Fox News. Today, he wrote about being a conservative, but not liking Rick Perry. He does a fairly good job ofÂ delineating what often-brought-up items concern him about PerryÂ a lot, a little, and not at all.
For example, he explains this:
But you should know this: Rick Perry is more popular with conservatives from outside the State of Texas than he is with conservatives from Texas. I’m conservative. I’m from Texas. And I can tell you that I’m not alone with the reaction of: Really? Rick Perry?
I imagine this is what the Tennessee Titans felt like when Dan Snyder developed a man-crush on Albert Haynesworth over a week’s time andÂ threw $100M at him to join the Redskins. Bud Adams and Jeff Fisher had to have sat there and said…”really?”
