Bobblehead Bigot

Sometimes we toss around the b-word too easily. But after seeing this desperate anti-gay ad from Rick Perry…

…I’ll say the man’s one big, bobbleheaded bigot.

I saw his new ad on fox where he’s talking about gays serving openly and children not being able to celebrate Christmas. I think he was talking about Israel, it’s the only country he could be talking about. I don’t know of any kids here in America who can’t celebrate Christmas.

I went to Rick Perry’s website, and through the “Contact Us” link, sent an email thanking him for the ad. I told him because of it, I am now 100% sure I will NEVER vote for him (and will recommend everyone I know to do the same). I said this country needs a leader who is able to identify and resolve the REAL issues, not make-up a bunch of non-issues such as kids not being able to celebrate Christmas, or the “dangers” of allowing same-sex attracted persons to serve in the military….

Perry can stay the hell out of South Carolina. He is running the ad here in South Carolina and I could not believe the words that came out of his mouth in this ad. He can go back to Texas and attempt to demonize gays that reside in Texas. Now I understand why W doesn’t like Perry. I can only hope that his run for the presidency ends his entire political career.

No, I will not be downloading the Perry bobble-head.

May I ask if I can use this on some of my posts on other boards, I love it.

I just heard someone say that the music in the background of the ad is by American composer Aaron Copland, who was gay. Listening to it over again, I can’t place a particular piece, but it certainly sounds like his style. Poor Copland is rolling in his grave.
