Remember when Rick Perry was the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination? Then he opened his mouth and supporters ran away as fast as they could, to the point where he is now polling in the single digits.

Well, Perry is keeping his mouth shut in his latest campaign ad ahead of the Iowa caucus, allowng his wife Anita to do the talking for him. In fact, Perry doesn't even appear in the ad until the end, when he, as Now Public aptly writes, "pounces onto the garden ledge behind Anita like a jungle cat, saying, 'I'm Rick Perry, and I really approve this message!'"
