BREAKING: Rick Perry knows how to spell his name — AND, he’s running for president!!!

Austin’s KVUE-TV reports on Twitter that the station handed Texas Gov. Rick Perry the above printout of an AP News Alert saying his spokesman confirmed this afternoon he’s running for president. Perry, who was in KVUE’s studio for a previously scheduled interview, responded by signing and dating the printout. Now that his “announcement” is finally out of the way, can someone please run a handwriting analysis on Perry’s signature? Because, if you ask us, the “R” and “P” look just a little too pretty for such a tough-talking Republican from Texas.
