After Not Thinking About It Much at All, Rick Perry Will Stay

Adorable Texas bigot Rick Perry quickly decamped to the forests of his home state last night to "reassess" his campaign, which is usually what you'd say when you're dropping out but need a couple of days to raise cash and pay off the bills. But Rick Perry is clearly too insane to concentrate on such things for more than a few minutes, so he's already made up his mind and decided to stay in the race. He announced this via Twitter, with a classic "Rick Perry Photo," and without really teling anyone. Good form, Perry! The dream will never die.

Perry tweeted from the forest this morning, "And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State...Here we come South Carolina!!!" along with a disheveled photo of himself literally running to South Carolina, in tights. He and his staff must have had a thorough debate about it this morning and landed on the "stay" side. Or Rick Perry just woke up and started typing nonsense:

Perry spokesman Mark Miner told POLITICO he didn't know what the tweet indicated.

"I'm checking on it," he said, before a question could even be completed.

Miner said Perry himself controls the account.

Perry had said he would take a day or two back home to decide on his next step.

"Miner said Perry himself controls the account" tells you most of what you need to know regarding the horribly mismanaged Rick Perry for President campaign.

He most likely heard about Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich's plan to pair up and beat the dickens out of Mitt Romney and wanted to get in on it. Wouldn't you?
