VIDEO: Republican presidential candidate in horror debate gaffe

perry2.png

Remember when we all got very excited about Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg because he looked down a camera lens for a bit, during the leader's debate?

Smart move Cleggatron. Less smart happenings over in the US, however, where Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry fluffed his lines in the most emphatic way.

His entire campaign is in trouble after he could not recall the name of a government department he is planning to do away with. Perry reeled off two in quick succession but was completely flummoxed about the third and final offing.
