This week, Texas Governor Rick Perry blustered his way into the thick of the GOP presidential race, racking up national exposure and controversial statements with equal swiftness. He referred to evolution as "a theory that is out there"; knocked Social Security as little more than a "Ponzi Scheme"; and derided worries about climate change, saying climates have "been changing ever since the earth was formed" (when pressed on when, exactly, that occurred, he would only say that the planet is "pretty old").

Pretty old, pretty ugly... pretty scary. And on the pretty geeky side of the news ledger, it was announced that "retweet" and "sexting" have been added to the Oxford English Dictionary.
