At the end of his stump speech at a town hall meeting, Perry said, “Those of you that will be 21 by November the 12th, I ask for your support and your vote. Those of you who won’t be, work hard.”
The legal voting age is 18, not 21. The date of the 2012 general election is Nov. 6.
MY GOD, Rick Perry.
If I had the energy I’d make this a daily feature, because for some strange reason being on the campaign trail makes seemingly smart people turn into incompetent boobs. Perry, Cain, et al can’t even have a definitive “Howard Dean moment” because they have them all the time. It’d be sad if it weren’t so funny.
