Nice!

Governor Perry took the stage at the RedState Gathering, a conservative conference of grassroots activists, in New Orleans Saturday afternoon. While he knocked his speech out of the park, Twitter and conference attendees were also buzzing over his new look. They could not get enough of his rockin’ specs.

Head over to Rare to see a great photo and an interview with Gov. Perry.

Is this a signal? A game changer?

Hmm. Did he hint at it during his speech?

The speech itself was a hit:

Boom.
