OOPS! Rick Perry Misspeaks And Crowd Laughs – “May I Rephrase That, Sir?” (VIDEO)

A lot of people have a hard time taking Al Franken seriously.

Even though he’s a senator from Minnesota, his history on Saturday Night Live is best remembered.

Today in Rick Perry’s hearings for Secretary of Energy, Rick Perry tried to make a joke about Franken’s history as a comedian.

But Rick Perry ended up misspeaking.

When Rick Perry goofed, the hearing room laughed uncontrollably.

Watch (via CBS News):

From the video:

Al Franken: “Thank you so much for coming into my office. Did you enjoy meeting me?” [Laughter]

Rick Perry: “I hope you are as much fun on that dais as you were on your couch [Laughter] . . . May I rephrase that, sir?”

Al Franken: “Please . . . please.”

Rick Perry: “Well, I think we’ve found our Saturday Night Live soundbite.”

Al Franken: “Let’s move on.”

Rick Perry doesn’t take himself too seriously. He can have a laugh at his own expense. 

He’ll make a great Secretary of Energy!
