You would think that if Presidential candidate Rick Perry were to release an appallingly offensive ad wherein he talks about how it’s wrong for LGBT folk to serve openly in the military, he would’ve double-checked that he wasn’t dressing like one of these “gays” he so disdains. Tumblr user Carl Connor noticed that the jacket Perry wears in his campaign ad is almost identical to one sported by Heath Ledger in 2005′s ode to cowboy-on-cowboy love, Brokeback Mountain. The irony! It is so sweet.
Of course, a couple commenters have called out Carl for trying to make a big deal where there is none. Weakest argument ever, one wrote. It’s a goddamn Carhartt jacket. Everyone [in Texas] has one. Maybe so, but you would’ve thought someone on Perry’s campaign would’ve seen Brokeback, remembered the costuming, and suggested that Perry buy the same jacket in one of the four other colors it comes in.
