Is Governor Rick Perry Wearing a Mexican Flag?

There's no doubt that Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has been attempting to rehab his image this week following his lackluster performance in the most recent FOX News/Google debate and subsequent drop in the polls.  Governor Perry bombed (in the eyes of many Conservatives) when he said the following:

"Every day I have Texans on that border that are doing their job (of securing the border) but, if you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they've been brought there, by no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart."

If you want to watch video of that debate question for yourself, go HERE.

Yesterday, Governor Perry uploaded a video to his YouTube channel that was probably intended to assist in said rehab as was this apology. However, Perry may have just created more trouble for himself.

According to his new YouTube video (below picture) Governor Perry doesn't golf, does shoot guns, jogs and plays with his dogs in his downtime.  Just one problem...what's on the back of your shirt, Governor?

Here's the video from which I took the above screen shot of Governor Perry in his Mexican flag t-shirt. The t-shirt appears at about the 1:22 mark in the video below.

(H/T to HispanicPatriot on YouTube for noticing the Mexican flag that Perry is wearing in the video.)
