Chris Barron: Confusing Red State Attack on Palin

"I suspect he & other Perry supporters view Palin’s candidacy as an existential threat to their candidate."
From Christopher Barron, as posted at Red Barron:
I have to admit to being more than a little perplexed at the line of attack against former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin taken by Red State’s Erick Erickson. Erickson first took the line of attack on his blog last week and it was picked up in an AP article today. Erickson goes after Palin saying:
“We are coming to the end of the line for Sarah Palin’s ability to string the Republican primary voters along,” wrote conservative blogger Erick Erickson of RedState last week. “They are trying to settle on a candidate now, they’ve held out hope of her entry and are now ready for her to put up or shut up. Many of them have already moved on.”
This line of attack is particularly bizarre given that Erickson’s preferred candidate, Texas Governor Rick Perry, announced his bid just two weeks ago. Apparently, two weeks makes all the difference in the world to Erickson.

Was Governor Perry “stringing” primary voters along when he said he wasn’t running for President and then changed his mind and decided to run for President?
