Rick Perry Is (Quite Literally) an Ass
Yesterday, during my occasional and futile shift on the Rick Perry firing squad, I unloaded most of my ammunition on Perry's impossibly ignorant rant about Obama's plan to protect gay people overseas -- an act Perry deemed as an attack on "traditional American values."
By the time I finished firing, I had left only limp rubber bullets for what could have been my main target to begin with: the by-now ubiquitous "Strong" ad that Perry's campaign posted to YouTube this week, in which he basically attacks his country's gay soldiers. The video has spawned some worthy parodies, both of which follow, along with the original. Try to enjoy them if you can. I'll be under my desk reloading.
