Rick Perry Gets The Taiwanese Animation Treatment

Rick Perry Gets the Taiwanese Animation Treatment

From our good friends at Next Media Animation.

Rick Perry was born a democrat to rancher parents deep in the heart of Texas. He met his wife in kindergarten at a piano recital.

Perry was a backer of former vice president Al Gore. But GOP operative Karl Rove convinced Perry to switch sides.

Perry became the governor of Texas when George W. Bush and Karl Rove left for the White House.

He is known for creating jobs. But critics say his business grants reward political donors.

His HPV program was attacked because it benefited a donor.

Also unpopular is a $5 "pole tax" that bar patrons must pay to enjoy live nude entertainment.

Perry is not a Bush clone. In fact, Perry and Bush hate each other. Bush and Rove backed Perry's GOP rival in the 2010 governor's race.

Perry is known for praying. He prayed for drought relief. But God has a sense of humor and denied Perry his rain.

Still, Perry leads the GOP race. Will he go all the way?
