When even Democrat operative like David Axelrod are saying how trumped-up the felony charges against Rick Perry are, you know that it's just a matter of revenge or mischief that have brought this inane process forward. I think it might be more of the latter. I wrote previously that it's likely to stop him from running in 2016, but with Mitt Romney and others out there stumping effectively for local candidates, perhaps the point is just to keep Perry out of making a difference in Texas, a state which some calculating Democrats seem to think is viable for them in the future. Hurt him now, hurt the GOP now and you're set up better to win Texas in 2016. Right Hillary?
Yeah right. But the notion of political mischief is still food for thought.
