Is Rick Perry the 'Tim Tebow' of the Iowa Caucuses?

This actually happened. Texas Governor Rick Perry, whose candidacy for the Republican  nomination for President has sunken after flying so high at the start of his campaign and now he is trying to build his support back up as we near the Iowa Caucuses on January 3rd, declared that he was the 'Tim Tebow' of the Iowa Caucuses. And no, I have no idea what the hell that means. Let's go to the videotape.
(h/t Mediaite)
And here is what he said in transcript:
“I want to share something with you, as each one of these debates — I’m kind of getting where I like these debates! As a matter of fact, I hope Obama and I debate a lot. I’ll get there early! And we will get it on and we will talk about our differences which are great. I’ll talk about what we have done in the state of Texas and talk about passing a balanced budget amendment to the United States Congress. I’ll talk about having, the type of part-time Congress that I think Americans are ready for. You know, there are a lot of people out there, I understand it. There are a lot of folks that said Tim Tebow wasn’t going to be a very good NFL quarterback. There are people that stood up and said, ‘well, he doesn’t have the right throwing mechanisms, or he doesn’t — you know, he is not playing the game right.’ You know, he won two national championships and that looked pretty good. We’re the national champions in job creation back in Texas. But am I ready for the next level? Let me tell you, I hope I am the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses!”
