Rick Perry: ‘I Don’t Have Memorized’ The Names Of All 9 Supreme Court Justices

Source:Think Progress

During a meeting with the Des Moines Register editorial board on Friday, Rick Perry asserted there were eight justices on the Supreme Court and mispronounced Sonia Sotomayor’s name.

Perry defended his error on Fox News this morning, telling host Chris Wallace that he hasn’t “memorized” the names of all nine Supreme Court justices. He went on to claim that voters “are not looking for a robot that can spit out the name of every Supreme Court justice, someone that is going to be perfect in every way.” Watch the segment:



Perry also admitted that he misspoke about the number of justices, despite his campaign’s insistence yesterday that the use of eight was intentional. As the Des Moines Register reported, the campaign claimed that Perry was referencing “a 1962 case in known as Abington School District v. Schempp where the court ruled that school-sponsored Bible reading is unconstitutional. The vote was eight to one.”
