After forgetting the third government agency he wants to get rid of at this week's debate, Rick Perry has been doing the TV talk show damage control tour. Last night it was the turn of the 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), where Perry tried his hand at comedy.
The 'Top 10 Rick Perry Excuses' had some funny moments, and a nervous-looking Perry started off okay, but mostly he seemed stiff and uncomfortable.
We liked his riffs on Mitt Romney -- "You try concentrating with Mitt Romney smiling at you. That is one handsome dude!" -- and Herman Cain -- "I wanted to help take the heat off my buddy" -- but our advice to Governor Perry is: Don't quit the day job for stand-up.
