From Rick Perry, during his speech withdrawing from the presidential race:
“I began this race with a sense of calling — I felt led into the arena to fight for the future of this country. I feel no different than I did then, knowing the calling never represents a particular outcome, but a journey that tests one’s faith and character.”
Oh, nonsense. You began the race because you thought you had a chance to win. But the fact that you’re a weapons-grade moron quickly became apparent even to Republican voters, who tend to actually like garden-variety morons. That wasn’t God calling you, it was your ego.
