Long story short: It's that openin'-his-mouth thing he does. It's killing him. "Perry's done this to himself," Moncrief says. "He's really hurt himself." Exhibit No. 438,822: Last night's Tonight Show appearance, in which, as the morning Musers pointed out, Rick Perry plays the part of David Wooderson.
