(CNN) - After his infamous "brain freeze" that drew laughter and ridicule from his detractors, Texas Gov. Rick Perry poked fun at himself Thursday night while delivering the "Top Ten" list on CBS' "The Late Show with David Letterman."
Perry sauntered on stage smiling, clapped his hands and saluted the crowd before rattling off the "Top Ten Rick Perry Excuses."
Political Notebook: CNN’s Jim Acosta and Bob Costantini discuss the Rick Perry “Brain Freeze" and how he’s handled it, post-debate. Plus, manufacturing jobs and tax policies.
OK, this is actually funny! I think he has a future in late night TV or he & Herman Cain can go on the road with their stand-up routines!Lol!!
Rick Perry, just like "W" Bush, making Texans proud.
I was surprised that there were no stories about Herb, the conservative radio personality and womanizer.
Kudos to Rick Perry for showing a lot of class last night on Letterman.
Wouldn't it be fun to have a President who would have a "brain freeze" while negotiating with Congress or world leaders? I'm sorry but, if you feel passionately that certain departments should be dismantled, you should be expected to have a clear idea of why you think that should be done. Having given it the required amount of consideration, you would surely recall which departments and why. Perry is not a leader. He's a politician. I truly don't understand how anyone ever supported him to be Governor. If Bush was an empty hat, Perry is an empty hat, suit, shirt, shorts, boots and socks. What a pathetic line up of candidates! But you have be amused by the irony of the faux-moralistic GOP considering Gingrich and Cain. Republicans: Please – don't dare posture about Clinton's escapades anymore, we could hurt ourselves laughing at you.
I don't know what he is on but I want some of it!!
He was pretty good on Letterman and might just have a future as a comedian after, if, texans finally get it and vote him out!!!
It was Global Warming; why not, the Democrats and bleeding heart liberals do it all the time!
Running for POTUS should be a very serious matter but Republicans have turned it into a joke around the world with the downgrade of characters that started with Sarah Palin. Huntsman and Ron Paul are the smart and serious candidates but because they are fully qualified Republicans reject these intellegent men, the rest are a danger to mankind and the entire world which is really not that funny
Perry, he really didnt have a shot at the nomination anyway. Still a great gaff! Funny how much play this has gotten as compared to the dozens of gaffs that Biden has made as out VP!
He was excellent on Letterman!!!
Cain should pay attention on what being 'funny' really looks like.
