Remember when Arizona Governor Jan Brewer had the most epic brain-fart in the history of public speaking during a televised debate last year (which in turn -- somehow -- made her poll numbers go up)? If not, check it out here (it's humiliating).
Well, presidential candidate/Texas Governor Rick Perry is givin' Jan a run for her money when it comes to who can look the dumbest during a televised debate.
During tonight's GOP debate, the governor told the world he knows he wants to get rid of three government agencies if he were to become president, he just can't remember which ones -- which is enough to make even Ron Paul laugh (uncomfortably).
