Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader should hurry up and grab Gov. Rick "Duh!" Perry for the show to battle wits with its young students.
I gotta get a major bet down on the students!!!
The worry for Rick Perry is not whether he will win the GOP Primary candidacy; rather, it is how effective a governor he will be once he loses and after he has proven himself to be severely mentally challenged.
According to part of an article in ABC's The Note: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/10/dartmouth-debate-takeaways-what-we-learned-last-night-the-note/
"PERRY: DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HISTORY? Texas Governor Rick Perry energetically bounded into the Beta Theta Pi fraternity on Dartmouth College’s campus after Tuesday night’s debate, but when he was asked a question about states’ rights, he slipped up on the dates for when the American Revolution was fought, ABC’s Arlette Saenz reports with an assist from KTRK-Houston’s Ted Oberg. “Our Founding Fathers never meant for Washington, D.C. to be the fount of all wisdom. As a matter of fact they were very much afraid if that because they’d just had this experience with this far-away government that had centralized thought process and planning and what have you, and then it was actually the reason that we fought the revolution in the 16th century was to get away from that kind of onerous crown if you will,” Perry said.” But Perry’s version of American history doesn’t match the history books, which show, of course, that the American Revolution was fought in the 18th century. http://abcn.ws/oilVIQ"
Texans better start worrying about how Perry will fare as Governor after he makes a complete idiot of himself on the GOP Primary circuit.
