Yesterday, CBS sent one of their intrepid reporters to Rick Perry’s hometown of Paint Creek, Texas. Apart from the media’s typical fawning over quaint old small town America, there is some interesting history in the video clip.
Astute observers will note that the next President of the United States did not graduate in the top ten percent of his high school class (he was third in a class of 13). Together with previous revelations of Perry’s below-par college transcript, these observers will probably say that Perry ain’t presidential material.
However, even more astute observers will note that the current President of the United States graduated from Columbia University and Havard Law School, was president of the Havard Review, and taught at the University of Chicago. Maybe some of these observers would suggest that the current President has conclusively severed any link between a high level of academic attainment and a successful presidency. We at RickPerryRolling have no comment to make at this time.
