Perry Indictment May Help Him

National Journal: "What had first appeared a gross abuse of power seemed more reasonable given the revelation that the public official he sought to oust was caught driving very, very drunk... Casting the indictment as part of a liberal witch hunt, Perry stood behind his actions in media appearances over the weekend, and conservatives across the spectrum helped bolster his case... If anything, the indictment news cycle has been kind to Perry."

Jonathan Chait: "Perry may not be much smarter than a ham sandwich, but he is exactly as guilty as one."
