Fresh word salad? Just a moment, sir, Chef Rick will toss one just for you.

Sunday we reported on Rick Perry's stream-of-consciousness interview on Fox News Sunday. Monday, Bloomberg Politics took up the thread- well, what they could find of one:
Without a teleprompter, however, Perry, 65, often seems lost... 
To the next question, which was whether the shooting should be seen as an act of terror, Perry also marched off towards parts unknown: “Well, I, I don’t know,” he said, “but I think the facts, once we get them, um, there were more people than that killed in Paris. Uh, this, this this was a crime of hate, uh, we know that. Uh, and also I think there is a really issue to be talked about it seems to me, again without having all the details about this one that these individuals have been medicated. And there may be a real issue in this country from the standpoint of these drugs and how uh, they’re used. I know for a fact, uh, being a substantial supporter of our military and our veterans, uh, that the Veterans Administration for instance is handing out these opioids in massive amounts, and then people question well why can’t these young uh, individuals get work, or why are they, why is the suicide rate so high. So there, there are a lot of issues underlying this that we as a country need to have a conversation about rather than just the re, the knee-jerk reaction of saying if we can just take all the guns away, this won't happen.”
