Perry picks a fight -- with Pelosi - Updated

Maybe he forgot which office he's running for? I mean, Pelosi and POTUS do both start with a "P." But for whatever reason, Rick Perry challenged Nancy Pelosi to a debate.

Pelosi's response was priceless:
"He did ask if I could debate here in Washington on Monday. It is my understanding that such a letter has come in. Monday I'm going to be in Portland in the morning, I'm going to be visiting some of our labs. I'm in California in the afternoon, that's two. I can't remember what the third is."
Ricky wants to debate his pledge to take a wrecking ball to our system of government, wherein he would make Congress part time, cut their salaries and abolish lifetime federal bench appointments among other things. Guess he also forgot that Congress already only works part-time. [Fangirl link to Charles P Pierce's take on that plan here.]

But even, giving Perry the benefit of pretending debating a Congressperson instead of his opponents for POTUS makes sense, shouldn't he be debating the current Speaker, John Boehner, instead of the House Minority Leader?

Almost feel sorry for the guy. Obviously, he's so desperate to recoup his former frontrunner status, he's hoping tapping into the base's Pelosi Derangement Syndrome will win him some support in the early primaries. Kind of pathetic.
