Speaking of sanity-estranged, plummeting GOP candidate Rick Perry released an anti-gay television ad today, one that lambastes our country's military while claiming that our children cannot celebrate Christmas in school (which is a lie, a balls out fib) or pray in the classroom (which is true, thank god). Perry spews:
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.
Tales of the City author and local wit Armistead Maupin summed up Perry's attack nicely, saying, "In a brazen attempt to regain his base, Ricky Perry is now openly attacking gay people. Look at this big LL Bean nancy boy! He should just buy a nice B&B in the country and STFU!"
