From the “shit you can’t make up” files indeed… Matt Ortega of AMERICAblog on Rick Perry’s Brokeback Mountain moment:

Rick Perry launched an anti-gay ad called, “Strong.” In the ad, he attacks gays openly serving in the armed forces. As it turns out, the gays get their revenge… the jacket Rick Perry wore in the ad? Heath Ledger wore it in “Brokeback Mountain.”

This is just fantastic. I know others who have the same jacket, but seriously. This is rainbow sprinkles on a shit sundae right here.
According to Ortega’s post, the divisive ad even caused conflict on Perry’s staff. You know it’s bad when your own staff thinks it’s slightly to the right of Attila the Hun. Here’s my take on the ad from yesterday and discussion on Scumbag Rick Perry’s hypocrisy. Hint: Slam Obama for excluding Christmas. Exclude Christmas.
