Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has been going on August ice cream runs, speaking with reporters and getting ready to schmooze with conservative activists in New Hampshire this weekend.
Oh, and he also got booked on two felony counts.
Five days after a grand jury indicted him, Perry is going about business as usual -- and his stock in the Republican Party has seemingly risen. Early signs suggest that Perry's political career won't be sunk by simultaneous campaign and courtroom tracks as he weighs another presidential bid -- that, in fact, the dual process might actually give his primary season prospects a boost. Unless, of course, he was actually convicted.
