Texas governor Rick Perry is an American.
How do I know this?
It says so right there in his slick, new ad.
One has to wonder why Perry or the ad's creators thought it necessary to bring this up.
There are no spoken words in the ad's script that say that Perry is "an American."
But, at the 1:08 mark, the words "an American" flash on the screen for less than a second.
The inference is inescapable.
Didn't we settle this already? Apparently not. But, I guess when you hang around with Donald Trump, some of that "birther" slime is bound to rub off.
