(Newser) – Was Rick Perry pie-eyed during a speech to a conservative group in New Hampshire on Friday? In a video that has since gone viral, the candidate adopted an exuberant, jokey style and pulled a lot of funny faces, leading some commentators to believe that the Texas governor was distinctly refreshed. "It was different," the mayor of Manchester told the Huffington Post after the speech.

The speech shows that Perry is "passionate about the issues he talks about," a campaign spokeswoman says. "We're not saying that he's definitely drunk, we're just saying, watch the whole thing," muses Max Read at Gawker.
