Perry: ‘I Couldn’t Get Elected Dog Catcher In California’

During an interview with Joe Scarborough last November while promoting his book, Fed Up!, Texas Gov. Rick Perry was candid about his chances in California. Responding to a question about the success moderate GOP candidates have had in the state, Perry replied that it didn’t bother him because, after all, ‘I couldn’t get elected dog catcher in California.’

In another gem from the same interview, he also referred to ‘one of those little states up there’ after confusing Vermont and New Hampshire. Scarborough’s response? ‘What a Texan!’
