What'd Rick Perry do to piss off NOM?

by Jeremy Hooper

Rick Perry was one of four candidates to sign NOM's marriage pledge. So it's pretty interesting that they are now thanking the Texas Governor by cutting him out of the slate of potential GOP candidates:

Gingrich has pointedly avoided the NOM pledge, even while acknowledging (if not fully signing on to) The Family Leader's related document. Ron Paul would be unlikely to ever sign on. But Perry is on board with the NOM Pledge. And yet not only does NOM cut him out of the picture, but Brian Brown completely overlooked Perry in his weekly wrap-up on the candidates and marriage, following a week where Perry caught national attention precisely because of his LGBT-centric views?

How did Gov. Perry so quickly go from front runner to a Rodney Dangerfield?
