I guess I was the only one who saw this coming.
“They put the campaign together like all the other Perry campaigns: raise a bunch of money, don’t worry about the [media coverage], don’t worry about debates and buy the race on TV,” said a top Perry official. “You have to be a total rube to think a race for president is the same as a race for governor.”
I get that the national media would've been easily taken in by the Secessionist, but remain baffled that Texas-based politicos were bullish on his chances when he entered the race.

The only path to victory for him was to, a la Palin, skip the debates and not give interviews -- which is exactly what they've done in Texas for years. And when those restrictions weren't put in place, it didn't take long for him to start babbling about Ponzi schemes and lynching Ben Bernanke.

Game over.
