Rick Perry Looks A Little Too Thrilled In Latest Campaign Ad (VIDEO)

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Here is comical sleazeball Rick Perry’s latest Iowa campaign ad, in which Rick Perry takes up thirty seconds of your life to talk into the camera and explain without any hint of irony that he is “not a talker” as some happy frolicking elf music plays in the background. Will America finally fall in love with Rick Perry the Elf Queen?

Say goodbye to the horrifying darkness of those apocalyptic zombie movie trailer ads Rick Perry was running just last month. He is all smiles now (even though he is still empty inside)! This is his “grand plan,” just doing the exact opposite of whatever he was doing before, to try to win back voters who have come to hate him so much that he is losing to Herman Cain even in his own state.

From the Texas Tribune:

Gov. Rick Perry is statistically tied with businessman Herman Cain among Republican presidential primary voters in his home state of Texas, with the rest of the GOP candidates well behind the leaders, according to the new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll.

Cain got 27 percent to Perry’s 26 percent among Texas registered voters who identify themselves as Republicans.

And now a Wonkette poll: does Rick Perry look “more” or “a lot more” hopped up on some delightful Bud Light-amphetamine cocktail in this campaign ad than in this drunk New Hampshire speech? [YouTube/Texas Tribune]

    Looks like Marcus is giving Perry a little reacharound action there.

  • Barb

    Seems that Rick heard that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce after two months of marriage and thinks he has a shot with her. He'll be the only man in Texas with a gal who has a ten-gallon thong.

    • SexySmurf

      Kim Kardashian's fairy-tale marriage is over!?! It seems like just yesterday I watch a rerun of her $10 million dollar wedding on E! How will I ever believe in love again?!?

      • Barb

        You'll believe in love again if someone buys that 25 carat, 2 million dollar engagement ring off of her and gives it to you. Dang thing is barely worn.

      • SexySmurf

        Yesterday I watch a rerun? I too sad to use proper grammar.

    • nounverb911

      All thong, no cattle?

        No, there's plenty of bovine in that family.

          Udder libel!!!!

    • DustBowlBlues

      I may be the hokey Xian around here, but I can be proud of the fact that I have no idea who any of the Kardashians are and why Chelsea Handler is always making fun of them.

      • LetUsBray

        I think they were one of the villains on Star Trek, especially Deep Space 9.

        • Lascauxcaveman

          Kardashians? Maybe that was Sex Trek: Deep Throat 9.

  • hagajim

    Rick isn't empty inside…he has a huge dildo in there….or maybe even dildii.

      So that's the plural of dildo!

      Not that I have ever needed to know.

          on the rocks or neat with a splash is okay. Straight up is evil.

          I think Perry is swiggin' it straight from the bottle.

      Or a smoker (well cigarettes at least) or a election law violator (yet).

      • emmelemm

        1. He's smoking the pole.

        2. Just you wait.

        • grex1949

          Right. Wait 'til he snares the nomination. Don't think there aren't people out there, digging around in his closet looking for skeletons. Keep your powder dry until it's time to engage the enemy, then let 'em have it with both barrels. Maybe the Dems are learning from Rove University of Political Campaigning after all.

      • Generation[redacted]

        one man's election law violation is another man's just another day in texas

    • Not_So_Much

      But if you want to stuff some cash in his g-string, he's definitely a taker.

      He's a sinker not a floater.

      Just as long as he's not (another) "decider."
      Gawd, I hate Texas!

  • elviouslyqueer

    Okay, what is with that mincing background music? Protip Rick: Less Boccherini, more Capital City Men's Chorus.

    I'm a sucker, not a talker.

    Oh, MERCY.

    • Lucidamente1

      One of which he is fucking reading during the ad.

      • Kidneys4Sale

        If one of the shat-upon interns could get us a side view of that, I would be appreciative. Or even the B-reel where he's likely bitching about how fast the little words on the screen doo-hickey move.

    • SayItWithWookies

      That little chestnut is just as funny the four-millionth time as it was the first. Texans must like their jokes like they like their roads — narrow, neglected, and with an end you can see for hours in advance before you get there.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Probably intended to deflect the observation that Perry suffers brain freeze whenever he attempts to go off-script. He's "not a talker" because he can't think fast enough to keep up with a Texas drawl.

      Sorry, Ricky, but it has nothing to do with teleprompters. In the unlikely event you ever had to go one-on-one with Obama, you'd come off looking not just dumb, but severely re†arded.

  • GregComlish

    Got to disagree. It's going to magic underpants all the way.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      You're right, but Perry still KNOWS it's coming to him. The same way Dumbya KNEW Saddam had those WMDs. The same way they both know that everyone they ever executed was guilty. It's a Texas thing: "Just 'cause somethin' ain't real, that don't mean a feller can't know it."

      Here's another "Texas truth": "In Texas, we created 40 million jobs." Talk about creationist bullshit… he swiped the jobs from other states by kissing corporate ass with low taxes, cheap labor, and near-zero benefits. (Of course, if the corporations look further south, he yammers about how cheap Mexican labor is ruining the economy.) What a Texas-sized steaming heap of manure.

    • fuflans

      yup. though i will say demonicrage: from your mouth to god's ear.

      and to think i was worried about him 5 weeks ago.

  • ProgressiveInga

    Rick Perry needs to back off the maple syrup!

    • elviouslyqueer

      Or dive headfirst into a vat of CoverGirl. Dang, girl, those wrinkles aren't going to hide themselves!

      • Negropolis

        Z-snap Libel!

    • flamingpdog

      Makes for tasty santorum, though!
      So I'm told.

  • OneDollarJuana

    "I'm a doer, not a talker". What an idiot. That's what a President does, is talk. And listen, too, but I'll betcha my last dollar Perry isn't real good at listening, especially if he doesn't think he's gonna like what's being said.

    • edgydrifter

      Exactly. Considering he's dressed, coiffed and made-up to be a 21st century Reagan, you'd think Perry would appreciate the value of speaking. Reagan said "tear down this wall." He didn't go rip the fucker down with a jackhammer himself.

      • http://whatthefuckhasgopdonesofar.com/ Ayn Rand Paul Tard

        Please, Perry is just gonna piss on that wall and it'll dissolve! A wink and crooked smile later Communism will be daid. Now where IS that danged wall? YEE-HAAAA!

  • Indiepalin

    If the Perry campaign really wants to gain traction, they should claim responsiblity for planting the Politico story yesterday.

      Wait a minute. I like that shirt. Do they sell it in the men's department?

  • widestanceshakedown

    Not like the leader of the free world would be expected to talk to foreign dignitaries, so, if elected, we can expect him to just do them? FTW?

    • Kidneys4Sale

      We could call him 'Amarillo Bottom.'

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        I read that as Armadillo Bottom. For some reason.

        • emmelemm

          So did I.

        • widestanceshakedown

          That's Perry's Manhunt name.

    • Negropolis

      He'll just do what Dubya did.

      Remember when they asked Dubya to name a few world leaders?

      • widestanceshakedown

        Who is this Dubya you speak of? I have to ask, since Conservapedia lists no one by that name.

  • Limeylizzie

    A lavender shirt? And is that concealer I see, under your eyes? Rick, is you a homo?

    • elviouslyqueer

      There's not enough concealer in the world to cover those stretch marks around his mouth.

      • http://wonkette.com/ Sharkey

        Once upon a time, the "Fred Flintstone look" had some appeal.

      • Limeylizzie

        Ouch!

      • Barrelhse

        The zipper burns don't help his looks, either.

    • emmelemm

      Yeah, the shirt! Oy vey!

      True personal story time: My dad is gay. Like gay, gay, gay. So a while back he put together a sort of family album/scrapbook (yes, he's the official family scrapbooker – GAY) and gave copies to everyone. There's a lovely photo of him and his four younger brothers; I'm not sure exactly how old he is, probably about 10? The photo is from the '50s, and in black and white, so what color the shirt is is lost to the ages, but nonetheless:

      There are five little boys, four of them dressed in typical little kid farm gear (stripey shirts, overalls), and my dad, beaming, in a shiny, button-down shirt. Even through the black and white photo and the oldness of it, the satin sheen of this shirt shines through. Just looking at this photo, the first thought one has is, "GAY."

      • ProgressiveInga

        I love this post and your gay, gay gay Dad! ♥

      • Limeylizzie

        Aw, that's sweet! My Dad loved to dress up in women's clothing, any chance he could , any costume party my 6″3″ 210 lb Daddy would be wearing some fin de siecle , gay 90s number.

        • emmelemm

          That sounds like a sight to behold. :)

          • Limeylizzie

            Fabulous! However, as he was my sole parent, as a 13 year-old it was so embarrassing.

          • emmelemm

            Try having a gay dad 24/7. But then, everything is embarrassing to a 13-year-old, n-est ce pas?

          • Limeylizzie

            Oui, bien sur.

          • http://Wonkette.com ProudLibunatic

            But that is an English thing, right? I've never seen a place where the men LOVE dressing in women's clothes so much!

            OT
            What a shame that poor ol' Jimmy Savile is gone! I loved him on Top of the Pops back in the day.

          • ChessieNefercat

            A parent, period, is embarrassing to a 13 year old. None of the other kids have them!

        • memzilla

          Your dad was Roger De Bris? Cool!

  • flamingpdog

    Perry's finally getting the born-again Jesusite look in his eyes and sweet smile down pat. Feller needs to head back to Iowa and win that first primary in the religious nutcase state.

    Nice lavendar shirt there too, Ricky. How much more ghey can you get, dude?

  • SayItWithWookies

    If Rick Perry was as bad a doer as he is a talker, his state would be in a fiscal crisis, suffer from rampant unemployment, be on fire, and have created the largest slew of subpar wage jobs without insurance or promise of advancement in the last two years. But then he never said he was good at it.

  • nounverb911

    "We cut a record $15 billion from our budget…."
    We abolished education on all levels.

    • emmelemm

      No firefighters neither.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        To be fair, he didn't need them, what with all the FEDERAL firefighing assistance he got (from that dadgum big gummint that he also wants to paralyze.)

    • GunToting[Redacted]

      And, from the look of it, firefighting.

    • DustBowlBlues

      And sent an intern out the back door to stand on the porch and wait for the delivery person to drop off that $20 billion Recovery Act check to balance the books.

      I so enjoy hating everything Texan. Where else would they brag about an epic defeat? Someone said the difference in our two state is that "Texans lost a battle, and they never stop bragging about it. 40,000 okies were blown away in a cloud of dust, and Oklahomans have never quit apologizing for it."

      Not entirely clear what that means, but it sounds deep, doesn't it?

      • Chichikovovich

        The one thing that's a shame about Big 12 reorganization is that we'll have to do without the annual (well, nearly so) Red River Beatdown that Oklahoma hands Texas.

      Christ almighty, but the modern day Repugnant Party is hideous. We had lunch after church yesterday with a friend who calls himself an Independent now and his Republican lady friend. Faux News was playing on a teevee screen the place uses for football games and the like. Fortunately, it was on mute. Rick Perry came on and someone muttered, "He's so smart" then the lady said she was warming to Cain, but would vote for Mittens or anyone who could beat Obama.

      How can anyone with half a brain identify with that bunch of mean, lying crazies? My daughter who moved from Seattle to Tulsa said that one of her early mistakes was assuming, because a person sounded intelligent, that they were liberals. :-)

      Looking forward to the last movie when the magic underwear fights an epic battle with the magic teleprompter.

  • Blueb4sunrise

    He physically resembles Bush more every day. (I watched without volume)

    Also, whoever was operating that camera also has the yips.

  • carlgt1

    when he lingers on the word "they" – you know it's code for "niggerheads".

    On another note – I guess Molly Ivins must be spinning in her grave to get out and lambaste these idiots (esp Perry of course).

  • VinnyThePooh

    You're not much of a looker either, Ricky.

  • Chichikovovich

    At first I thought "ah, the teleprompter joke", how *original*. But then I realized that what Perry actually said was not "uses a teleprompter", but rather "has great teleprompter skills". And since Perry also uses a teleprompter when he speaks, the implied contrast is:

    "Would you rather have for president a guy who can make a speech on a teleprompter sound compelling and powerful, or would you rather have a marblemouthed dolt who can have every last aspect of his speech – including pauses and emphases – spelled out right in front of him on a transparent screen but will even with that assistance come out sounding like someone slipped the worlds first talking chimpanzee a whole bottle of banana brandy."

    With that understood, the Perry campaign really is offering a starkly honest choice, and they should be commended for it.

      Where can I get some of this delicious banana brandy?

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        That was my first thought — it sounds yummy.

        I'm going to invent a new cocktail with it: the Banana Foster Brooks.

    And because of my hard work and leadership, Texas is headed for a mega-shitstorm.

If you and me and all the other dumbfucks can just get together and blather loud enough and long enough, we can lick every last bit of that outdated smart stuff that's left in warshinton. So please, put your mark on the voter registration form, and if you don't in fact know how to make an 'X' please have someone nearby who can help you."

    ^Surefire winner Rick. You can pay me when you get to the White House.

    I wonder if in the not too distant future some smart anthropologist will analyze at these pitiful videos and get a Nobel Prize or something.

    • flamingpdog

      Why do you hate smart anthropologists?

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      I don't know about the Nobels, but if Carl Hiaasen ever turns his attention to Texas, he could earn a Pullitzer.

  • Rotundo_

    What I am interested in knowing, is this: If Rove and the Bush faction hate this man as sincerely as they do, when does the rat fucking begin? I would have thought that Karl and his crew would have put the screws to someone out there to either out this guy or to roll on some sort of corruption investigation to pull him down. It seemed he was doing a good enough job of self sabotage at every debate, but the money keeps rolling in for him. There should be some marvelous rat fucking (to go with Cain's dose) headed Ricky's way if Rove's patterns and reputation hold. I just want to see what they do to torpedo Ricky.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      He's doing a fine job of fucking up all by hisself — look at the poll numbers. Herman Cain is the one with the threatening numbers, and he's the one who just got Roved.

    • Negropolis

      You don't want to take him out, too early. You let him mess with Romney some more to thicken his already thick skin (Romeny is not anything if not doggedly persistent), and then you take him out.

      • NellCote71

        All of the above are so right on the Rove thing. Unfortunately the Cain bomb dropped the same time as the Perry speech in New Hampshire, and the media are going with the Cain story. But all the Obama campaign has to do is play a few clips from the Perry speech. No other script, just the clips. I have never seen anything this bizarre in my six decades on this earth, most of which have been as a yellow-dog Democrat.

    Since the Rethugs are so in love with hijacking oldies for commercials without getting permission/paying royalties (e.g., Barracuda © for Mooselini), maybe Rickie's shirt gives a clue for his…

    ♪♫ Purple shirt upon my frame
    Lately things don't seem the same
    Acting funny, but I don't know why
    'Scuse me while I kiss this guy

    Purple dazed all around
    Don't know if I'm cummin' or up-side-down
    Lindsey's ham biscuits all around
    Whatever it is, that Graham's put a spell on me ♫♪

      Okay, my last comment about the purple shirt: Do that make that shirt in a men's style?
      Thank you!

  • http://whatthefuckhasgopdonesofar.com/ Ayn Rand Paul Tard

    I'll give them this much, they've created a pretty sweet alternate universe where none of their actions have ever had negative consequences. Not to say they ever play the victim card either, because that's strictly a librul/socialist/muslin/satanic thing.

    I wish for a Perry nomination almost as much as I wish for Cain. I picture the debate with Obama, where Perry blathers on about all the miracles he's wrought in Texas with budget cuts and tax cuts, and Obama just lets him have all the rope he wants. Then Obama recites Texas' rank (47, 48th, 49th, 50th) in per capita income, education, SAT scores, health, and a dozen other measures of citizen welfare. "That's Rick Perry's Texas, and that's Rick Perry's vision for America. If that's what you want for your kids, go ahead and vote Republican."

    (I'm making the optimistic assumption that the dumbfuck demographic, who do want exactly that, is still a minority.)

    • grex1949

      But Number One in executions! He's got that going for him.

    • Negropolis

      "That's Rick Perry's Texas, and that's Rick Perry's vision for America. If that's what you want for your kids, go ahead and vote Republican."

      And then he totally drops the mic, and walks off stage to thunderous applause.

  • ttommyunger

    Still expecting a Perry/Palin ticket to be announced any day now. That would suck all the air out of the Repug. race.

    I continue to be stunned and amazed that the cloning of George W Bush went this badly.

    At last, somebody less eloquent than George Bush.

    Is it my monitor or is he wearing a lavender shirt in that ad?

  • arihaya

    Herb Cain can become nominee the same way Michael Steele became RNC chairman: to prove that they "are not racist"

  • http://www.gurukalehuru.wordpress.com gurukalehuru

    O.K., so he's a birther and carries on the teleprompter jokes. These are just funnin, you see.

  • DemonicRage

    I deleted my own comment by mistake, trying to click on replies and read them. I had said that Perry knows that the nomination is now his to lose. No one in the Republican Party likes Mitt Romney, and that racist party will never nominate Herman Cain (whose balloon seems to be deflating, even as I type these words).
