Update: just as a fun contest, let’s see if you can detect the subtle differences between Perry’s original ad and this re-mix.
Another update: the hits just keep a’comin’.
Yesterday, Rick Perry released a shameful ad which scapegoats military men and women in an attempt to create a new wedge issue to help get him out of the toilet in recent polling. In releasing this ad, Perry has not only jumped a whole school of sharks, he simultaneously shames the office of President, draws fire even from fellow Republicans, and once again embarrasses Texas.
The response to this inappropriate ad has been quite appropriate.
As I write this, more than 155,000 people have “disliked” the ad on YouTube, while fewer than 3,500 have “liked” it.
Meanwhile, this meme is making its way across the interwebz on social media.
And finally, there’s this:
Perry should be ashamed of himself. Then again, he should have been that long ago.
