Pundits Speculate Whether Perry Was Drunk, Drugged During Speech

Pundits Speculate Whether Perry Was Drunk, Drugged During Speech

Republican Presidential hopeful Rick Perry gave a speech in New Hampshire last Friday that pundits have described as being at times incoherent, over-the-top and bizarre; and the video is currently making its rounds on YouTube.

A giddy Perry spoke to an influential conservative group called Cornerstone in a flamboyant tone and acted as if he was privy to a secret that the rest of the audience was missing out on.  At one point, soliciting campaign contributions, the candidate suggested that donations be made in gold.

“Write your checks. Gold is good, if you’ve got any in the back yard, cause, you know, if they print any more money over there in Washington the gold’s gonna be good,” he said.

Some, like the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, have speculated whether Perry was drunk or drugged during his speech, or if he is unwittingly tiptoeing into Howard Dean “yeahwwwaaa” territory.

Perry also said that he loved the New Hampshire “live free or die” State slogan likening it to the Alamo war cry “victory or death.”

“You know we’re kind of into those slogans, man. It’s like, live free or die victory or death. Bring it!” The candidate shouted.

A Perry spokesman responded to inquiries about the candidate’s performance from the Huffington Post saying, “The Governor is passionate about the issues he talks about.”
