No greater example of it than this administration sending millions of dollars into the solar industry, and we lost that money. I want to say it was over $500 million that went to the country Solynda [sic].
Rick Perry, doing that thing he does. Hey, Rick, can you point out “Solynda” on a map? EDIT: Uncorrected the spelling.

The composer mimiced in Rick Perry’s anti-gay ad? “An outspoken gay Jew.”
If the ad itself isn’t a big enough gaffe… The background music in the ad has ties to noted composer Aaron Copland, an important 20th-century composer whose “Appalachian Spring” inspired the music that gives Perry’s much-disliked campaign ad its swelling style. (To be clear: That is different from being by Copland; the composer of Perry’s music was lifting the style, not copying Copland verbatim.) Copland represents a number of things Perry speaks against in the ad — particularly, he was gay, Jewish and long-suspected of having Communist leanings, to the point where he once had to testify in front of Congress that he wasn’t a Communist. Not the best idea, Rick. But neither was the ad. (thanks marcushere; photo via Library of Congress) source

That was quick: There’s already a Twitter account dedicated to the $10,000 bet Mitt Romney offered Rick Perry. See, Mitt? Bad idea.

This president is the problem, not something that Newt Gingrich said.
Rick Perry • Putting a nice bow on the ribbon that was the debate over Newt Gingrich’s Palestine comments. To a degree, yes, but considering Israel/Palestine has become such a large issue for conservatives, that’s not entirely true.

Rick Perry on marital infidelity: "Now only did I make a vow to my wife, I made a vow to God." He says it’s a vow that’s "more serious than a handshake in Texas." Big laughs on that one.

Rick Perry, jockeying for the anti-gay vote: This ad, called “Strong,” has the Texas governor promising to end the Obama administration’s “war on religion” and touting his commitment to Christianity. “Something’s wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military,” Perry says, “but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas, or pray in school.” It’s unclear what policies President Obama has put in place to deny kids the right to openly celebrate Christmas. As of this writing, the video has 675 likes and 26,650 dislikes. source
