Republican presidential contender Rick Perry will laugh about his debate performance with David Letterman.

The Texas governor is scheduled to appear on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Thursday to talk about his brain freeze a day earlier on stage with his GOP rivals.

Perry promised during the debate to eliminate three federal agencies if elected but could only come up with two names. He later said he would eliminate the commerce, education and energy departments.

He also acknowledged that he had "stepped in it" during the debate.

Perry is trying to turn the stumble into an opportunity. He is asking supporters to pitch in a few dollars for every agency they would abolish.
