The Missionary

Rick Perry United for Life LA

Is the rabid, fist-waving Rick Perry getting in? If so, part of the message — the photo taken at a Hispanic anti-abortion rally in L.A. — is that the Virgin Mary herself would have his back.

I was going to juxtapose this photo with a pic from the GOP debate in New Hampshire last night, but the forgettable (and forgettably early) scene just wouldn’t have held up to Perry laying on the fundamentalism thicker than Huckabee, amongst others.

(photo: Richard Vogel/AP caption: Texas Gov. Rick Perry speaks during a United For Life event at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday June 12, 2011. The conservative Republican brought cheers from a crowd at the Hispanic anti-abortion event in Los Angeles when he said, “Every life is precious.”)
