In what one Twitter user dubbed the “hipster cowboy” look, Texas Gov. Rick Perry was sporting black horned-rimmed glasses when he spoke at the RedState conservative blogger conference in New Orleans on Saturday. (Twitchy.com has a compilation of photos.) But according to Wayne Slater at The Dallas Morning News, little else seems to have changed about Perry, who is considering another presidential run in 2016:
If Perry looked a little different, some things don’t change – like recalling numbers or geography. Touting Texas, Perry declared, “There are many other states that embrace those conservative values, the approach we’ve taken over the years. I’m in one today – Florida.”
“We’re in Louisiana,” someone shouted.
Oops. Maybe he just needs his prescription checked.
