Perry Botches Kim Jong-Il's Name

At this point, Rick Perry's general knowledge of history and current events is just laughable. The GOP Presidential hopeful had yet another "oops" moment today, this time referring to the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il as "Kim John the Second." Perry made the gaffe in an email which was posted on his website, then subsequently corrected. Interestingly enough, Perry incorrectly referenced his name three times, but then used the correct "-Il" once. Another interesting observation is that Perry wrote in the email that he was "a vicious dictator," but then referenced him three times as though he were a monarch.
