Lucky Ricky Perry is the guy in the perfect position to win the GOP nomination by default. The Texas governor is neither as smart or as poised as the former Massachusetts governor, but he's close enough to be the first choice of the primary voters who will take their anger against Obama into the polls this winter and into next spring. Romney's repeated squishiness on social issues will give them pause and then his religion will help them make their decision to vote for Perry. In the end, Rick Perry will win. And the GOP will lose.
