After a huge thumping in Iowa, where $6 million bought him just 10.3 percent of the vote, Our Governor Rick Perry said he was coming back to Texas to reassess whether God made a mistake in telling him to run for the Presidency.
This morning he tweeted, "And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State...Here we come South Carolina!!!" and attached the above picture.
It absolutely does not make him look like some crazy uncle you try to avoid at Thanksgiving. In Rick Perry's mind, at least.
