Reacting to Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s latest advertisement, which assails what the presidential candidate calls President Barack Obama’s “war on religion,” liberal satirist Andy Cobb published his own take, which concludes that “God does not believe in Rick Perry.”

“Perhaps this is a good time to remember that gay and atheist presidents didn’t get us into the war in Iraq, the financial crisis, or turn your mortgage into toilet paper,” he said. “It took some God-fearing vagina penetrators to pull that off. Maybe we should let Christians do what they do best — praying, which clearly doesn’t work — and leave the governing to sodomites and infidels.”

Watch both ads below.

Andy Cobb: “Weak, man”

Rick Perry: “Strong.”
