Rick Perry, corn dog champion ( Iowa Politics ) So Rick Perry caught a big break Tuesday: He took a shellacking from his own party’s establishment for accusing Ben Bernanke of treason and threatening to deliver a Texas-style beatdown should the Fed Chairman ever set foot in the state. Karl Rove and gang are leading the way in umbrage-taking, saying Perry’s comments were irresponsible and unpresidential.

From my fourth-floor room at the Rio, I can see beautiful people frolicking in the glorious pool area in sparkling sunshine (albeit sunshine that is generating 109 degree heat). Me? I am ensconced in an easy chair. Typing a bunch of political news on a laptop. Never let it be said that I don’t love you people. With that bit of gratuitous whining out of the way, please enjoy the Wednesday edition of the Wrap, live from Las Vegas! THE U.S.

ATLANTA — Dueling endorsements from Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich could help decide a crowded Republican primary for Georgia governor Tuesday. Palin’s nod to former Secretary of State Karen Handel has helped her surge to the top of the polls in recent days, while ex-congressman Nathan Deal could benefit from the backing of Gingrich. The two served together in the U.S. House. On the Democratic side, one-term former Gov. Roy Barnes is facing the first electoral test in his comeback bid.

NORFOLK, Va. — Sarah Palin on Sunday painted President Barack Obama’s administration as a cowering giant intent on surrendering the nation’s mantle as a superpower and willing to sell out its allies. The former John McCain running mate addressed a paying audience of several hundred people in Norfolk and accused Obama of selling out ally Israel in over its naval blockade of Gaza and treating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shabbily.

On Thursday, when the time came for independent counsel Timothy Petumenos to give former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin her comeuppance for putting private fund-raising above the public trust, he picked as the venue the “Adventure Room” of the Hotel Captain in Cook in downtown Anchorage. The symbolism was almost as thick as the media that crowded the smallish space in the basement of one of the city’s long time cornerstones. The hotel was built by Wally Hickel after the Good Friday earthquake in 1964 destroyed much of Alaska.
