Picture of the Day: Yelp Mocks Rick Perry

Not that we needed any confirmation that Rick Perry stepped in it on Wednesday night, but when a company openly mocks you on the iTunes App Store, you know you have. Yelp listed the above information on a software update to its iPhone app, ostensibly blanking on the third bug it has eliminated.

After Perry's Letterman appearance, his mental lapse has now officially become a part of mainstream culture, transcending Republican primary politics -- and politics in general -- with its stupendousness, horror, and hilarity. There's something for everyone here. I'll hazard a guess that it would win, hands down, in a nationwide poll of favorite campaign moments, beating out every Herman Cain flub and Newt Gingrich's campaign staff all quitting at once. If it counts as a campaign moment, only one comes close: network TV cameras cutting away from Donald Trump, as he blustered in front of microphones at a New Hampshire airport, to show President Obama releasing his birth certificate.

Here's Perry's disaster, once again:
