A response to Rick Perry's "not ashamed to admit he's a Christian' ad
Edited on Thu Dec-08-11 11:35 AM by pokerfan


ETA: You can see the original "Rick Perry's not ashamed to admit he's a sniveling bigot" ad here: http://youtu.be/0PAJNntoRgA

And don't forget to vote like or dislike. (Right now the dislikes are winning by 50:1) :rofl:

2. I notice a distinct silence from a certain group of religious folks here about
Rich Perry's abhorrent TV spot. The silence is very telling.

3. How does one defend the indefensible?

:shrug:

Still, it's good to see it fall flat on its face, at least on Youtube. Still, it was nice of him to put such high production values into archiving his sniveling bigotry because it can't be written off as an off-the-cuff, spur-of-the-moment comment. Nope, this was carefully scripted and I'm betting that they went through several rewrites. :puke:

4. " How does one defend the indefensible?"
Plenty of people manage to. Usually they do it by alluding to their "deeply held religious beliefs", "religious freedom" or something similar.

7. 44:1 now
The religious bigots seemed to have mobilized and are now voting en masse. (Did Billo mention it tonight?)

10. A video response to Rick Perry (parody) Really worth a look as it goes viral.
