Texas Governor Rick Perry sounds more and more like a presidential candidate each day; he’s even taken the now-customary GOP leap of ordaining his candidacy with a Holy aura.

“I’m not ready to tell you that I’m ready to announce that I’m in,” Gov. Rick Perry recently told The Des Moines Register. “But I’m getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I’ve been called to do. This is what America needs.”

We can expect an announcement sometime in August, and when he does get in, the Michele Bachmanns and Tim Pawlentys of the world will be in deep trouble, as their candidacies are all about adhering strictly to a GOP orthodoxy that comes naturally to Perry.
