Rick Perry has a bad memory
PERRY: And I will tell you, it’s three agencies of government when I get there that are gone – Commerce, Education, and, the, uh, what’s the third one there? Let’s see…
RON PAUL (holding up five finger): Five.
PERRY: Oh, five. Ok. So, Comemrce, Education, and the uh, uh, uh…
PERRY: EPA. There you go.
DEBATE QUESTIONER JOHN HARWOOD: Seriously? Is EPA the one you’re talking about?
PERRY: No sir, No sir. We were talking about the agencies of government – EPA needs to be rebuilt, there’s no doubt about that…
HARWOOD: But you can’t name the third one?
PERRY: The third agency of government I would, I would do away with – Education, the uh, Commerce, and let’s see – I can’t, the third one. The third one there. Oops.
Looked like a Monty Python skit (starting at 0:50)! :p
