Rick Perry Ad Now Most Unpopular YouTube Video Ever
Well, there may be one person out there that likes Rick Perry's controversial "Strong" ad, after all.
The homophobic ad that somehow equates the ending of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy by the Obama Administration to the totally bogus idea that kids can't celebrate Christmas or pray in school now has passed Rebecca Black's Friday video in dislikes with over 300,000.
Reached for comment, Black said, "We we we so excited."
Ok...that part is made up. What does it say about the state of our country now that a video attacking the gay community is now the most disliked video on YouTube.
I think it says that, while we have a long way to go, we've come a long way, too.
Incidentally, the picture above shows that someone in Rick Perry's campaign didn't realize that the candidate was wearing the same coat as Ennis Del Mar, Heath Ledger's character, in the movie Brokeback Mountain while someone in the blogosphere did. That movie, as I'm sure most of you remember, was about a gay relationship carried on by two men over a long period of time.
