GOP Presidential Hopeful Rick Perry Again Can’t List Three Agencies to Cut

Some where in Texas, a village is missing an idiot. Once again, Rick Perry draws a blank on which three agencies he would cut, Think Progress reports. Why is this fool still in the race for the Republican presidential nomination?

First Read: “During a radio interview this morning, he was asked which federal departments he would shut down. Perry listed: ‘Three right off the bat: Commerce, Interior, and Energy are the three that you think of.’ Problem: Those are NOT the three he had previously not been able to name. He swapped Interior for Education. He has not previously said he would eliminate Interior. The radio host later followed up and asked Perry if he would eliminate Education, and Perry responded with a harsh critique of federal education standards.”

President Obama would love to get this man to debate. It would be comic relief 20 times over. How did Rick Perry ever win any election, much less a gubernatorial election. What does that say about the Republican electorate in Texas?
