A video from the Missouri Democratic Party:

Narrator: You know, here’s the thing, Governor Rick Perry’s ads about HB 253 sound pretty good.

Texas Governor Rick Perry (r): This is Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Narrator: If you don’t happen to know anything about what HB 253 actually does. You see, it’s the GOP tax scheme that would give the favored few a tax cut of twelve hundred bucks a year. And the average Missourian? Their tax cut would only be enough to pay for a Big Mac.

As Governor [Jay] Nixon’s [D] pointed out, it would make devastating cuts to our schools and to mental health services. And it would even raise the tax on prescription drugs.

And the worst part? Is Governor Perry’s running ads trying to steal Missouri Jobs.

Texas Governor Rick Perry (r): Because Missouri families and businesses know Texas is a great place to live and work.

Narrator: Maybe Governor Perry gets by with silliness like this in Texas.

[Texas has a lower graduation rate than Missouri.]

After all, he doesn’t take very good care of his schools.

But I’ve got bad news for Governor Perry. Missourians are too smart to fall for his nonsense.

[emphasis in original]

That left a mark. Heh.

It just goes to show, you don’t bring an idiot to a knife fight.
