It's not nearly as bizarre as Tom Delay's appearance on Dancing With the Stars, but this video of Governor Rick Perry celebrating Hanukkah with a group of orthodox Jewish rabbis, intentionally or otherwise, is damn funny if for no other reason than Perry is trying his best not to look really, really uncomfortable and failing.
Perry, a staunch conservative Christian, to his credit, clearly is doing what he can to accommodate a ritual that must make him feel a tad off his game, but we can't help but chuckle at the end result. Watch the hilarity after the jump.
