Rick Perry's Cornerstone speech on Friday night in Manchester, New Hampshire raised a few eyebrows. Speculation about his seemingly ad-libbed speech gave way to questions about whether he was on anything, or had been drinking beforehand. About the most charitable review was from Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas who opined that "It was different". Some of the accompanying remarks on YouTube, where some clips were put together and have since gone viral, had people wondering about his mental health.

A short clip about Rick Perry's Tax Plan, or Rick's Postcard is above. The full 8 min YouTube is below.
