Perry flubs U.S. voting age (and the date of the 2012 presidential election)
Perry flubs U.S. voting age

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) Rick Perry flubbed both the country's voting age and the date of the upcoming presidential election at a speech to a group of college students in Manchester Tuesday.

The Texas governor told students in the audience he'd appreciate their vote if they were turning 21 by Nov. 12.

But the United States' voting age is 18, and voters will weigh in on the presidential election on Nov. 6.

SNIP

p.s. I wish Perry would just go away and stop embarrassing us Texans!
