Debate Flub: Perry Cannot Remember The Govt Agency He Would Eliminate

I have to admit that I missed last nights GOP debate.  However, DrudgeReport made sure that I did not miss Perry’s embarrassing brain freeze moment as he tried to remember the third government agency he would eliminate (Department of Energy):

When I first saw that video even I felt a little embarrassed.  For a guy who is struggling to make a comeback in the polls this little incident of forgetfulness could be what ensures the death of his campaign.  To make matters worse everyone who missed the debate live will no doubt catch it circulating the blogs and news feeds over the next 24 – 48 hours.  That might draw some of the media attention away from Herman Cain.  He can use a break!

For the record Perry did go on CNN to do a little damage control and to tell everyone that he is not giving up.

“I stepped in it, man. Yeah, it was embarrassing. Of course it was.”
