Meanwhile, the inevitable "it" — the way campaign trail reporters will come to think of themselves as close friends of Rick Perry, a Texas Cowboy with whom "you" would like to have a beer — is well underway. According to Ben Smith, reporters following Perry at the Iowa State Fair today were charmed as he questioned whether they were "tough" enough to follow him around.

Someone hand me the Petpo, because I'm gonna be sick. Really, people? You're falling for GW Perry? Seriously?
