Rick Perry has a new ad out, at least on the net (Check the jump for the video.)

It consists entirely of fascinating footage of a computer screen as someone enters search terms into Google like "Bill White  disenfranchising military voters." You know what? Items come up in the search!! QED, mofos!!!

You know what, though? You can enter just about anything into Google and get a screen full of hits. Like:

A search for Rick Perry Idiot gets hits. As does Rick Perry Gay (a whole lot of hits).

And Rick Perry Crook, Rick Perry Bestiality and, of course, Rick Perry Secession.

Anyway, Perry's ad:

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
