Broadway Rick

NewImage

If ambitious, it’s a far-fetched photo the Perry people posted on Rick’s Flickr site recently, the cowboy-candidate posturing himself as fashionable to the urban East Coast as well as the financial establishment. (The shot, as you see, dates back to ’09.)

Perry has some tough auditions ahead to sell the idea he’s ready for Broadway. Although he’s solicited here by the rabidly promotional market exchange, Perry’s free market script (underpinned by his chairmanship of Texas, Inc. with its system of pay-to-play), his stock might be tempered somewhat by his improvised threat of harm to the Fed Chairman, representing an all-too-random and unpredictable style of regulation.
