It’s really more than that. It’s not just thinking that government is bad and wanting to close three agencies. It’s being such a tool of your own politics that Perry didn’t even know which was the third agency he wanted to shut down. That suggests that Perry only wants to shut down agencies because he thinks that’s what the Tea Party wants, not because he actually believes it or understands it. A really terrific comment, only a minute and a half long, from Chris Matthews tonight.
