Before video of the knockout blow, some brief background on the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry that even the New York Times and David Axelrod have said is questionable at best:

At issue is Perry’s decision to veto $7.5 million in funding for an anti-corruption unit that is part of the Travis County district attorney’s office. Perry wanted Rosemary Lehmberg (D), the district attorney for Travis County, to step down after her April 2013 drunken-driving arrest. She declined, and Perry made good on his threat to withhold the money. A watchdog group filed an ethics complaint that led to Perry’s indictment on two felony counts.

In response, Team Perry delivered a cup-shattering kick to the crotch followed by a roundhouse to the head:

That’s a Texas-style punch that’s sure to leave those who indicted Perry seeing nothing but cartoon bluebirds fluttering around their heads for several hours.

Update:

For some reason I think this might end up on a “Perry 2016” poster:
