What the H-E-double-hockey-sticks is Rick Perry thinking with this latest political ad? The guy's Presidential campaign is suffering miserably, we know that. So why then did he decide to further alienate any straggling voters by coming off like an out-of-touch wackadoo bigot? Don't answer that. I already know the answer to that. Because he is an out-of-touch wackadoo bigot.
Why else would he spend umpteen thousand dollars to make an ad that attacks gays, the military, and freedom of religion and then brings up something he calls "Obama's war on religion." Oh please. Obama's had a hand in dealing with a few wars, but a "war on religion" just isn't one of them.
Oh, don't feel like you have to take MY word for it. The ad is bad. Last I checked, it had racked up 6,866 likes -- and 309,172 (!!!) dislikes.
WATCH the Rick Perry ad:
Here's the transcript in case you think your ears are deceiving you:
I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a Christian, but you don't need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there's something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school. As President, I'll end Obama's war on religion. And I'll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage. Faith made America strong. It can make her strong again. I'm Rick Perry and I approve this message.
Seriously, Perry? He has this lovely platform set up for himself, on a grassy knoll, alongside a lake, and then he opens his hate-filled mouth to say the "something wrong" in America right now is gays serving openly in the military. That's what comes to his mind? What America is he living in? Last I checked gays in the military had NOTHING to do with our country's ailing economy.
All I can fathom here is that this ad is some sort of desperate B-A-double-hockey-sticks-S to the wall moment in his campaign. Nothing to lose, he's letting his freak flag fly, hoping to tap into the unrealistic worries of a GOP minority. Instead, he comes off looking like he doesn't have the tiniest inkling as to what Americans are truly worried about. You know, like putting food on their tables and finding jobs? Who is he even talking to -- some 1 percent hate-pusher club? Because those are the only votes he's going to pull in with this approach.
