Perry's Swan Song


Wednesday night’s GOP debate cannot claim a winner, but there was one clear loser, Rick “Oops” Perry.

Good grief.  For someone so desperately in need of a solid debate performance, Perry blundered so horribly that I doubt he can get his campaign back on track.

When Perry gives his stump speech, he mentions three federal government agencies he would eliminate if elected president.  The problem last night was that he couldn’t remember them.

"I will tell you, it is three agencies of government when I get there that are gone: Commerce, Education, and — what's the third one there? Let's see."

He struggled hard to remember.

“The third agency of government I would—I would do away with, Education, the...,” Perry continued to try and find his answer.

Someone in the audience, trying to help the poor bastard out, shouted “Commerce.”

“Commerce and, let’s see,” Perry said. “I can’t. The third one, I can’t.  Sorry.  Oops.”

In the spin room at the conclusion of the debate, Perry sheepishly confessed he’d had a meltdown saying, "I'm glad I had my boots on tonight. I stepped in it out there."
