"What's That Line Again" +
:30 ad run only on Dec. 1, 2011 Iowa during Gov. Perry's appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Perry (clip from debate): Commerce, education, and the, um, what's the third one there?

[Music] (to camera): Department of Energy.

You know, we've all lost our train of thought before, but not many have done it on national TV.

If you want a slick debater, I'm obviously not your guy.

But if you want to clean house in Washington with a balanced budget amendment, a flat tax, and a part time Congress, I'm your man.

I'm Rick Perry and...what's that line again?

I'm Rick Perry and I approve of this message.

Notes: From the Perry campaign press release...

While the rest of GOP field is busy handling scandals, inconsistencies and contradictions on important issues, Gov. Perry's appearance on Leno and his special Leno ad show he is confident enough to use the attention from last month's Michigan debate to highlight his status as the true outsider conservative in the Republican field," said Perry campaign communications director Ray Sullivan.
