Rick Perry's Debate Performance Tonight Was Funny, In a Sad Kind of Way.

I was sitting down to watch some teevee when the bossman emailed: "Rick Perry just shit the bed." Ah. Yes. Tonight's debate, otherwise known as: The Night Rick Perry's Campaign Ended when he couldn't remember ... couldn't remember ... something ... oops. Shame too, though at least Bill Hader should get at least one more crack at Our Governor before he goes back to Austin, never to be seen on a national stage ever again, no matter how he tried to spin it afterward. Modern Family wasn't on tonight; Phil Dunphy was. Herman Cain approves this message.
