Perry-palooza (UPDATE: Schultz issues mea culpa)

It was only a matter of time before the MSNBC kooks would get the vapors over another Texas governor running for President (Dang, I wish Olbermann was still on the network).

On Ed Schultz's MSNBC program Monday, selectively edited video footage of Rick Perry giving a stump speech was used to give the impression he was conveying a racist statement.

Not to be outdone, Chris Matthews on Tuesday referred to Perry as "Bull Connor with a smile."

I never thought I'd see the day where a prospective GOP Presidential candidate could induce more lunacy than what Sarah Palin has endured since 2008. And this is only Day THREE of Perry's campaign.

UPDATE: “We did not present the full context of those statements and we should have,” Schultz said, then replaying the full Perry quote that made it clear the “big black cloud” Perry was referring to is the U.S. debt, and not President Obama, as Schultz maintained Monday. “No doubt about it, it was a mistake and we regret the error … we should not have included it in our coverage.”

Ya think?!?!?!

There's no regret here. They knew the correction would be forgotten. It's so easy to slander first, apologize later.
