I have no idea why Rick Perry wants to continually remind the voters of his onstage gaffe last November when he just could not dredge up the name of the federal department that he wanted to abolish.
Perhaps his campaign thinks that the voters will remember this come primary day in their states, but your average voter has no long term memory at all, and one heck of a weak short term memory.
But he keeps doing it. Like today, when he has a one-night only ad that will likely play during his time with Jay Leno tonight.
