Rick Perry is described as blessed with “special a-hole privileges” for hating on gays in new video spoof.

Perry's campaign on Tuesday released a decidedly anti-gay ad titled Strong in Iowa. In the ad, Perry linked faith to anti-gay sentiment.

In the 50-second parody of the ad by Andy Cobb of The Partisans on The Second City Network, Cobb pokes fun at Perry's abrupt and hard shift to the right.

“I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm an atheist,” Cobb says as he walks in a forest. “But you know there's something wrong with this country when politicians think it's okay to hate on gays and non-believers in ads.”

“As if their magic spirit guide, or whatever, blessed them with special a-hole privileges.”

“Perhaps this is a good time to remember that gay and atheist presidents didn't get us into the war in Iraq, the financial crisis, or turn your mortgage into toilet paper. It took some God-fearing, vagina penetrators to pull that off.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

In introducing the ad on YouTube, Cobb wrote: “Honestly, if kids 'observed' Christmas any harder in schools than they already do, they would be elves. And liberals don't hate religion, we're just too busy drum circling, same-sex marrying, and not owning guns to bother.”
