At this point, it is safe to assume that Donald Trump has no interest in actually running the country, but is engaging in trolling the American political system and media until someone finally calls his bluff.
They may not have made the main event, but these 7 Republican presidential candidates will have a chance to make their mark at the Fox News "Happy Hour" debate, and subsequent viral video clips. See them here first.
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry has thus far been the on;y Republican presidential candidate who's shown a willingness to step up and attack Donald Trump, but if his performance Thursday morning is any indication, it's going to be a long debate for Perry.
Go on, add a few more. Why not?
With governors like these, it's no surprise Republicans are looking elsewhere for 2016.
Like most of what Governor Oops does, he made that point unwittingly, but he still deserves some "credit."

We wanted the hipster glasses.
The real problem here is that Perry hasn’t been indicted for any of the things that actually should land him in prison.
They say don't mess with Texas, but we're just going to sort out the mess IN Texas.
Rand Paul won't have an easy path to the nomination, but more and more it's looking like he'll have the easiest.
