Rick Perry’s brain fart at CNBC debate

“Dumber than Dubya” Rick Perry continued to fortify his reputation as the goofiest candidate on the GOP primary slate last night at the CNBC debate, when he was unable to remember the name of the third of three agencies he planned to cut as President.  Perry’s potentially campaign-killing brain fart:

Stalwart GOP supporters are anything but pleased:

I almost feel sorry for the poor guy.

    That was just too bad. Would love either him or Cain to be the nominee for the GOP. That was just bad….

    That was Bad by several orders of magnitude. I can just picture one huge collective *facepalm* happening all across America in homes tuned to CNBC.

    He puts me in mind of Dan Quayle and “potatoe”.

    It was rather funny that he couldn’t remember the
    Department of Energy, given that he’s from a state
    with an energy-driven economy.

    How much longer can he go on at this rate?

    Slow motion train wreck.

    I think he’s just… not ready for prime time.

    Not even ready for Happy Hour, really.

    I’ve been trying to fix that for you so the video shows up here, but for some reason I can’t. WTF? I just posted a vid in another comment a few days ago and it worked okay. F’ing wordpress…

    I don’t do the bracketing. I just take the youtube link and copy and past it in. Almost always works for me.

    No bracketing, just the youtube link… the shortened one that comes up when you click on “share”?
    Hm, let’s see if I can post Howard’s rant

    OK, I’ll try the url

    That’s what I did, but for some reason it didn’t work for me. I think it might be YouTube’s new embed code. I did notice (too late) that there’s an option to use the old embed code, so you and JJ could try that.

  9. 11 JJ Friday, November 11, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    I copied the url in the address bar and it worked!!!!

    Good thing because I was getting MAD AS HELL!!

    Ironically, I have never seen Network in its entirety. That and the original Wall Street (“I create nothing. I own.”). I really should get around to doing that someday.

    Also one of the best speeches of all time, along with Gecko’s “Greed is Good” speech

    Greatest movie ever made.
    You can see it in its entirety at Google Videos… hang on, I’ve got the link somewhere…

    Here, try Greektube (hopefully it hasn’t been austerity’d out of existence)

    EDIT: Or try this one, in 5 parts. I watched Pt.1 & 2 and it and it seems fine.

    Totally awesome movie.

    Could this group of GOP cretins get any sorrier? Pathetic, really.

  14. 16 JJ Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    This is without a doubt the lamest and most pathetic line-up of GOP candidates I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been watching US politics since right around the last time the Leafs won the Cup (ahhh, I remember that last game so well).

    You know who I genuinely feel sorry for? John Huntsman. Huntsman and Ron Paul are the only sane ones in the crew (and the jury’s still out on Paul). But Huntsman has so little support that his name is rarely even mentioned with the others. He gets even less attention than Santorum!

  15. 17 Terrence Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    My impression is that Huntsman has as much contempt for the teabagger contingent in the Republican base as you or I.

    My hope is that after the Republicans nominate one of the crazies, and said crazy is utterly crushed in the general election, guys like Huntsman can ride in and say “I told you so!”

  16. 18 JJ Sunday, November 13, 2011 at 10:44 am

    Exactly right — someone like Huntsman could save the GOP brand. Unfortunately, I think they have to spend a little more time in the political wilderness before they figure out that going ultra-far-right isn’t a winning formula for the long haul. So far they’ve benefited from the economy being so bad, but in more prosperous times they wouldn’t be so lucky.

    It’s too bad, really — every political system needs a credible opposition, especially a 2-party system.

    It’s amazing how weird the GOP has gotten since I first started observing US politics. Richard Nixon was considered a right wing monster in his time, but by today’s standards he’d be a flaming liberal :shock:

    OOOPS!! there went Perry’s chances of getting the GOP nomination. This guy makes Palin look intelligent.

  18. 20 JJ Friday, November 11, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    Dude! What’s happening!

    Seriously, eh? Perry is weapons-grade, rock-solid Stupid. Can you imagine a debate between him and SaWah? :lol: :lol: :lol:

  19. 21 Phatbiker Friday, November 11, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    Jon Stewart and Colbert would have enough material for a year! If any of these clown car conservatives (GOP) actually became POTUS, the planet is doomed. It makes me want to throw up how they fall over each other, saying that they where “called by God”, who is the most right wing and who is the most Christian. They all want to throw woman’s reproductive rights, the 99% and med-pot under the bus (except maybe Ron Paul).

  20. 22 JJ Sunday, November 13, 2011 at 10:36 am

    No kidding eh? Even without any of them being in the white house, this must be like an open-pit comedy gold mine for those guys.

    I actually quite like Ron Paul, except for some reason he’s anti-choice, which I find very strange for a libertarian (though I think it could have something to do with Roe v Wade being federal law). Other than that, he’s usually the only one that makes any sense to me, along with Huntsman. The rest are a bunch of bootlicking bible-thumping hypocrites.

    some where in Dallas Bush is laughing his ass off and telling the dog, “and they thought I was stupid.”

  22. 24 JJ Wednesday, November 16, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    Seriously. I never thought the GOP would come up with a candidate even dumber than Bush. I hate to imagine the would-be candidates that didn’t make the cut :shock:

Wait. What?
