GOP debate tonight

Watching the talking heads show today the big question seems to be will Texas Governor Rick Perry be able to to speak in complete sentences if he bothers to show up at all. If he skips it I can't blame him because Texas has a wildfire outbreak which is more important than a talkfest in California.

Perry's budget cuts didn't cause this catosrophe but it didn't help responding to it and want's federal aid.

Rick Perry slams feds for slow fire aid, after huge cuts to quicker state response

W]hile Perry complains about the feds’ response, he and Texas lawmakers have also been called to task for huge cuts to state firefighting resources passed earlier this year. The two-year budget that took effect last Thursday includes a 75 percent slash to volunteer fire departments — from $30 million to $7 million — and a one-third cut to the Texas Forest Service.

These GOP candidates should really stay away from corn dogs:
