He was only trying to make a folksy appeal to conservative Christians in Iowa.
And what he had to say was unlikely to cause much controversy with the evangelicals who dominate the Republican Party's caucuses there.
But when Presidential hopeful Rick Perry donned a brown jacket and spoke to the camera for his latest campaign ad he didn't expect to be so widely mocked.

I’m no big fan of Rick Perry, but this alleged ‘controversy’ (what? another one?) is nothing but bullsh*t.
Stupidest thread of the day.
Yes, quite trivial, but it is funny that the Daily Mail ran with the story.
There is an underlying hypocrisy to the fact that the same people who claim to be for the normalization of homosexuality to always be the ones using homosexuality as a means of mocking others.
Is the comparison between jackets supposed to mean something?
Looks like a Carhartt jacket I’ve seen in their stores.
Sorry but there’s not a straight man in the world who would ever, ever catch this.
Oh BS, Go to any construction site in the winter and you will see 90% of the people there with that kind of jacket. Carhart has many jackets that look like that.
This is so dumb. Perry said basically that things are jacked up! Our prez sez, gays in the military are OK but you can’t pray in school. Yes boys and girls, that is jacked up!
Did the mocking make him Ang Lee?
An ACTOR trying to look like a cowboy, wears a coat that a REAL cowboy wears...
And someone wants to make a point that the REAL cowboy is copying the ACTOR?
Am I getting that right?
How nuts is that?
So what? Ledger in his homo role was dressed by the costume dept of the film production company, to resemble someone who lives out west and works on a ranch. Whether you like Perry or not,,,he is dressed normally for where he lives.
Are we also supposed to stop wearing boots cause two homo actors* wore those costumes in their mockery of western masculinity?
* Sure i know, i know,, they were only “acting” and supposedly not homos. Of course,,, nevermind that Jimmy Stewart would never have kissed a man for a role, or John Wayne, or Ronald Reagan, or Clint Eastwood, or Errol Flynn, etc etc,,,
It’s a field coat ya maroon...I have one in green from Lands End. It goes well with my European man purse...er...I mean .30-06.
You gotta stoop pretty low to join this chorus.
Let's see how many people we can get on this awesome thread.
Uh, there is nothing stopping kids from praying anytime, anywhere they so choose—even in school.
Which shows the danger of the homosexual rights movement. They will steal, corrupt and pervert more and more of our culture if allowed to do so. A jacket once considered a mans jacket can now symbolize homosexuality. Gestures, clothes, activities, etc all that once could be considered normal for men or women can be perverted into standing for homosexuality. Thus our culture will be more and more perverted and our children will be under attack by these growing amounts of homosexual symbols used a means of mocking or intimidating them.
People had better start to call a spade a spade and fight back against the perversion of homosexuality. Homosexuality is a corruption of natural human sexuality and is a danger to any culture.
Well, the day is still young. We have a few more hours to go. But, unless something even more inane comes along, this does take the cake.
Hopefully it will get pulled since garbage like this is not why I have Free Republic as my "must read" website.
