Rick Perry on Pakistan....Or Something

Holy cats. When I wrote earlier about Rick Perry "sounding like a schoolboy" during tonight's debate, I hadn't even seen this clip. I must have stepped out of the room for a minute or something. But he was obviously caught off guard when Bret Baier asked him about Pakistan, stumbled through a positively Palinesque bit of word salad, and then burbled something about the answer being better relations with India. What a train wreck. I humbly apologize to schoolboys everywhere.
