But Rick Perry isn't one of those candidates. He says unbelievably stupid things (like, the government should have our schools should teach intelligent design), only to issue other stupid statements that defeat his first (like his later statement that the government should have nothing to do with schools). They're both horribly wrong and stabbingly insulting - but they're hypocritical, too, since both of those conflicting statements come from the same mouth.
And even though he sometimes tells the absolute truth, the fact he apparently intended to send a different message (like "George W. Bush did an incredible job in the presidency, defending us from freedom") makes such gaffes flat-out shocking instead of humorous.
But I just found one take on Perry that makes his brand of verbalism hysterical. Instead of listening to his words, just read his lips and apply the words that he appears to mouth. And even funnier, you'll find he makes much more sense in this method than if you heard his actual words. The video's below. Check out the text crawl, and keep a close eye on Perry's mouth. The ... well, accuracy is quite impressive!
And just for comparison, here is Perry's original with the actual audio:
And if you bothered to watch the second one, don't you agree that the satirical first video makes Perry sound so much better than he really is?
