Perry discovers new country of ‘Solynda’


Sarah Palin might have just been lapped by Rick Perry. If you thought Palin’s “I-can-see-Russia” comment was an embarrassing identifier of her foreign policy experience during the 2008 presidential race, check out what Perry, who already had that “oops” moment during a debate and seemingly forgot how many justices sit on the U.S. Supreme Court (and had that awful campaign ad “Strong”), had to say when criticizing President Obama and the Solynda debacle.

Via CNN Political Ticker:

“No greater example of it than this administration sending millions of dollars into the solar industry, and we lost that money,” Perry began. “I want to say it was over $500 million that went to the country Solynda.”

I’ve never been to the country of Solynda. But I hear that it’s lovely this time of year.

What Perry actually was referring to, of course, was the solar cell company that burned through half a billion dollars in federal aid without producing anything. To make matters worse for Perry, that company is Solyndra, not Solynda.
