Rick Perry Intrade chartDuring tonight's GOP Economic Debate, Rick Perry informed the audience he would cut 3 federal agencies immediately upon becoming president.  The Dept of Commerce, the Dept of Education, and....and..... and.....I'll have to get back to you on that. 
The online trading (gambling) site Intrade, which trades futures on candidates prospects of receiving the nomination, saw the Perry future drop 63.27% instantly on the blunder. 
Whoops.  Watch Perry's potentially fatal gaffe below.
