Sodomites and Infidels Are Great Alternatives to Rick Perry

Second City spoofs Perry's "Strong" video with their own—"Weak, man"

In a way, one could thank Rick Perry for making himself, his homophobic policies, and his ludicrous victimization of Christians so utterly spoofable. Currently, his "Strong" video—in which he bemoans the liberal war on all things religion, most importantly Christmas—has 3,567 likes and... 163,961 dislikes on YouTube. But perhaps this video, starring Andy Cobb from The Second City—where he reminds us that "gay and atheist presidents didn't get us into the War on Iraq, the financial crisis, or turn your mortgage into toilet paper"—best illuminates the absurdism in Perry's stance. (Not that you needed any further help!)
