Slimy Shoe Fungus Rick Perry's Dramatic Flip Flop On Trump

A back to back example of his hypocrisy...

The contrast between Rick Perry last night and Rick Perry last year. (h/t Scarce for the mash up)

Last night Perry said Trump would "peel the skin off" Hillary in a one-on-one debate. Hey Rick, thanks for the Game of Thrones torture-to-death imagery.

And then it's on to...Benghazi! Emails! Clinton Foundation! We can see the spinning flashing lights of Drudge in your eyeballs, Governor.

But last July, Perry was singing a very different tune. And the thing is, that speech is still up at I grabbed this bit right from there. Trump:

...offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism: a toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued.

Let no one be mistaken – Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised and discarded.

I get that politics makes strange bedfellows, but when you leave a speech like that up at your own website, we start to wonder, Rick, if you REALLY believe that "cancer on conservatism" is all of a sudden benign.
