Rick … I Wish I Knew How to Quit You

I’m pretty sure this is going viral, so … first!  (On FTB, anyway.)

And in case you miss the joke, Rick Perry appears to be wearing the same jacket as Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain. (Understand, this is not making fun of gay cowboys; it’s making fun of a “cowboy” who has a visceral dislike of gays.)

    Perry must have jackhammers for arms. I have never seen a moron dig a hole so deep so quickly.

    It’s Carhartt; I’ve owned one. They’re a major brand in rural areas: they make hog-tough, warm, comfortable outerwear that will last through the roughest of conditions. Perry would wear one to project an image of an agricultural worker, as would an actor portraying a cowboy in cold-weather work attire.

    They are similar, but clearly not the same. The queer cowboy’s collar is fuzzier (naturally) and lacks the horizontal seams on Perry’s. In any case, even if they were exactly the same jacket, if this is the best material you have, Perry has very little to worry about from the likes of you.

      *chuckle* This isn’t “material against Perry”. This is just a li’l joke.

      Got under your skin, huh, sweet cheeks?

    So basically, yeah, you’re making sh*t up. Congratulations on being full of… well, you get the idea.

      Nobody needs to make shit up, there’s whole cartloads full of it. This particular thing is merely something to laugh about.

      When rumors started flying that Perry would enter the GOP race and sweep the boards with his wit and intelligence, I asked a few Texans of my acquaintance about the man. Smart & savvy were words used often. So far the man has been a first class twit, dumb as a rock, pandering with the best of them and completely unable to see the problems with his imagined theocracy in conflict with the actual constitution of the United States.

      To use the occasion of his Brokeback Mountain moment where we are laughing at his unintentional mistake rather than at the sad list of his actual, important, potentially world affecting errors misses the point.

    so gays just need to look for the tan jacket? that’s replaced the earing on the left? right?

  • Dan McPeek

    Hank, seems you got ol’ Jinksy kinda chafed under his
    pink chaps. You gotta quit pickin’ on that ol’ bigot
    Ricky “we’re at war with Iran” Perry.

  • bbgunn

    Bet ol’ Jinxy has a coat just like that. (Not that there’s anything wrong with it.)

    This is a great response.

    Straight cowboys wear those coats too, they’re just not that new and clean.

    Given the allegations that Governor Perry is Mr. AC/DC, this video is rather fine.
