If you can't answer the question, don't run away--stuff your mouth

A short post: If you're confronted by a question that you can't (or don't want to) answer, I think it's better to stuff your face, a la Rick Perry--who couldn't answer why he thought Social Security was unconstitutional because he was chewing a popover--rather than to leave the interview, a la Christine O'Donnell--who didn't want to discuss her views on homosexuality with Piers Morgan.

Perhaps Twix will use Perry in their "Need a moment?" ad campaign. Or maybe his handlers will learn to stuff his mouth before he says dumb things. I hope they don't--it's nice to have the reminder that he's thinking dumb things.
