Perry says New Hampshire holding caucuses, not primary in another gaffe, despite calling such mistak
Source: The Washington Post

Texas Gov. Rick Perry dismissed his campaign trail gaffes in a Wednesday morning appearance on Fox and Friends as a sign that he is merely human, and said the focus on them is an effort to distract from his policy positions.

He said he is an outsider who is capable of overhauling Washington, insisting that Republican voters are still making up their minds about who to support for president. "Were going to be talking about it, and were going to be talking about that in harsh and strong terms over the course of the next four to five weeks as we get ready for those New Hampshire caucuses," he said.

Only problem is that New Hampshire holds a primary. It's Iowa that holds caucuses.

The slip-up came a day after Perry asked students during a speech on a New Hampshire college campus which of them would be 21 by Nov. 12 to back his effort, getting both the voting age and the date of the election wrong.

See, we can't get this kind of comedy up here in Canada! (We have nutjobs in gov't, don't get me wrong. But they're boring nutjobs.)

3. This almost makes me wonder if there are really bad things about him he wants to hide
that he thinks will not surface if he is seen as not a serious candidate. In that case, he leaves the race with people thinking him a good guy, but very poorly informed. Not presidential, but a good start to be a Fox News presenter. (Won't use newsman or journalist, because he could not deserve it, but really like the British word, which is more accurate in terms of what they do.)

5. Late Breaking News?
Isn't this a bit trivial for Late Breaking News?

What's next, VP Biden thought it was Tuesday when it's really Wednesday?

12. He probably meant "cactuses".
Cut him some slack, he's doing the best he can, considering what he's got.
