Rick Perry's stand-up act gets standing ovation

For once, Texas Gov. Rick Perry wasn't just the butt of jokes. Saturday night, he was the one telling the jokes . . . most of them, at least. Speaking at the annual white-tie-and-tails dinner of the venerable Gridiron Club in Washington, Perry earned a standing O. And that was from the media elite!

Twitter Comments:

@GovernorPerry gets rave reviews at Gridiron. Self-deprecating humor: "the weakest Republican field in history & they kicked my butt."

@GovernorPerry describes his time as Republican presidential frontrunner as "the three most exhilarating hours of my life." #gridiron

@GovernorPerry says he was A&M animal husbandry major: "That's what Rick Santorum thinks that gay marriage leads to." #gridiron

1. Then he must have paid real money to get someone good to write those jokes.
