Rick Perry released the ad “Strong,” this week. In it, he laments the fact that gays could serve openly in the military, while children could not openly celebrate Christmas. The video quickly racked up the most dislikes ever to a YouTube video. It spun off several parodies, one of which claimed atheism and dinosaurs are what will make America strong again

@RexHuppke: In his latest ad, Rick Perry is wearing the same jacket Heath Ledger wore in “Brokeback Mountain” because God has a great sense of humor.

@HuffingtonPost: Now Rick Perry is going to skip the Donald Trump debate

@TheBloggess: On behalf of Texas, I’d just like to apologize for Rick Perry.

@GRohac: People saying “Get Rick Perry’s Ad taken down!” -STOP. It IS deeply offensive and hate filled. So he should have to live with it. Forever.

@HuffPostPol: Rick Perry mistakenly says U.S. is at war with Iran.

@rationalists: Wearing Heath Ledger’s Brokeback Mountain jacket, Rick Perry is so deep in the closet he can see Marcus Bachmann & the good people of Narnia

@Caissie: I ‘disliked’ Rick Perry’s stupid new ad on YouTube & I reported it for being inappropriate. Maybe you will too!…

@CharlotteElia: Sometimes I think that Rick Perry is just a guy doing an impression of Will Ferrell doing an impression of George W. Bush.

@MissKellyO: Rick Perry I don’t approve of your ignorant bigoted message! In fact Im becoming an american citizen so i can vote against people like you!

@HuffingtonPost: Rick Perry has another ‘oops’ moment

@rstevens: “I’m Mitt Romney and I hope Rick Perry keeps endorsing that message.”

@TheFix: Lot of chatter that Rick Perry’s numbers are (finally) starting to move up in Iowa….

@TheNardvark: Rick Perry was so angry when “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” was repealed his rentboy had to sit on frozen peas the whole next day.

@ShawnGarrett: Obama’s campaign should just run that Rick Perry video and tack on, “Republicans, amirite?” at the end.

@TheFix: Rick Perry, the Iowa x-factor.

@Margoandhow: Rick Perry: “I’m NOT ashamed to admit that I’m a Christian!” What a ridiculous remark. It is Jews who sometimes try to keep it quiet…

@EthylRosenberg: Rick Perry is moving into the WTF? zone: “The independent school boards should make those decisions, not the government.”

@ZackFord: Rick Perry: School board should make decisions on school prayer, not government. What does he think a school board is?

@DeAnn_1: Are all you Rick Perry fans Rip Van Winkles? You’ve got to be out of your minds if you think Perry can out think Mr. Teleprompter!!!(Barry)

@ericfought: A translation of Rick Perry’s latest ad:

@FckIzzy: Rick Perry’s basically trying to get us back to the old days, where we’d sacrafice “witches.”

@BryceBuchmann: I’m so tired of Republican presidential candidates who are ashamed to admit they’re Christians. Thank goodness we have Rick Perry. #strong
