(Newser) – Images of Rick Perry seemingly getting in Ron Paul's face during a TV break in this week's debate have triggered all kinds of fun speculation about what was going on, and now we've got explanations form both camps, notes Ben Smith of Politico. Prepare to be disappointed.

  • Paul: "I don't even recall the moment when that was occurring and I don't remember what he said, and we didn't have any cross words."
  • Perry spokesman (to the National Review yesterday): “They were talking about border security and it was a very cordial conversation."
