But Perry pal Jeffress went on FOX & Friends (oh, Gretchen) this morning to remind True Believers in Iowa they don't have to vote for Mitt Romney, that cult member. Says First Baptist Dallas's leader: "Anyone is electable if they get enough votes." Well, yeah.

Update: After his dismal, fifth-place showing in Iowa, Perry's headed back to Austin for "a little prayer and a little reflection." Good luck with all that.
