Oops!

Texas governor Rick Perry (R) had another memory lapse on live TV on Friday. This time it wasn’t something complicated, like remembering which three government agencies he would eliminate as president. It was the name of Daily Rundown host Chuck Todd that escaped Perry during his appearance on the show.

Perry referred to Chuck Todd simply as “Todd,” not once, but twice in the span of his interview, which lasted all of about four minutes.

Despite the error, Todd didn’t flinch, and continued pressing Perry on issues like health care and education in Texas. The governor conducted the interview live from Iowa, traditionally the first state to hold a presidential primary election. Ironically, when asked if Governor Chris Christie is conservative enough to get the Republican nomination, Perry insisted the GOP focus is on the 2014 midterm elections. Yes, live… from Iowa.

He made sure to point out, however, the utter hypocrisy of our right-wing Supreme Court majority forcing women to have babies in times of massive economic insecurity. You know, like a freaking shortage of baby formula! But hey, it's all about worshipping the fetus and hating the actual child for these Taliban Republicans.
