Video: Rick Perry Drunk During Bizarre New Hampshire Speech?

Video of a bizarre speech delivered by GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry is making the rounds on the Internet, leading many people to speculate that he might have been under the influence of something.

Perry made the speech Friday in New Hampshire. He had wild mood swings during it -- at times giggly and extremely happy with wild hand gestures, then towards the end almost whispering his somber statements.

Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas said "It was different" -- the understatement of the year. "Strange and peculiar," which another Republican operative called it, is more appropriate.

The Daily Mail reports the Perry campaign has not commented on his behavior yet, only saying that "The Governor is passionate about the issues he talks about."
