Rick Perry Does Damage Control

Even if you didn't watch, you've surely seen the Rick Perry epic, cringe-worthy moment at the debate the other night that has gone viral and couldn't help but make you pity the man, no matter what your feelings toward him. He's gone into overdrive in attempt to laugh off the flub, appearing on every show that would take him yesterday. It won't likely help him, but he may have another career as a stand-up comedian. He delivered the top ten list on Letterman last night with impeccable comedic timing and he was a hoot. (#2 was the best):

10. Actually there were three reasons I messed up last night. One was the nerves. Two was the headache and three um … uh … oops.
9. I don’t know what you’re talking about, I think things went well.
8. Hey I was up late last night watching “Dancing with the Stars.”
7. I thought the debate was tonight.
6. Hey listen you try concentrating when Mitt Romney’s smiling at you. That is one handsome dude.
5. Uh, El Nino?
4. I had a five hour energy drink six hours before the debate.
3. You know I really hoped it would get me on my favorite talk show, but instead I ended up here.
2. I wanted to help take the heat off my buddy Herman Cain.
1. I just learned Justin Bieber is my father.

Nothing will change in the race...but he's handled the gaffe admirably.

Your assessment is spot on, Sally. Well handled, dead in the water.
