Comment of the Day: The Rick Perry Catch-22

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We noted how Rick Perry was trying to raise money off his incredible debate gaffe, a ploy that would work only with people who are drowning in the Kool-Aid, not just drinking it.

One reader summed up Perry's conundrum.
