In an attempt at a smackdown aimed at Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich – the two leaders in the Republican nomination race – Rick Perry tried defending his limited knowledge of basic political science when he said that Americans don’t want a robot for President.
Perry went on Fox News to try and explain why he couldn’t remember Sonia Sotomayor‘s name, and why he thought there were eight Supreme Court Judges on the bench.
“I don’t have[sic] memorized all of the Supreme Court Judges,” Perry said. He continue, saying “Americans are not looking for a robot that can spit out the name of every Supreme Court justice, or someone that’s gonna be perfect in every way.”
True. Americans aren’t looking for a robot, but we do want a president…with a brain.
