Our friends over at You Deserve a Cockpunch are here to count down the most cockpunchable people on the planet for the week we REALLY started to hate Rick Perry.

Rick Perry
This week, President Obama issued a memo “directing federal agencies to use foreign aid dollars to combat the criminalization of homosexuality, protect LGBT refugees and asylum seekers, and respond to human rights abuses in foreign countries.” In response, Rick Perry said, ‎ “Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong.” But what I heard was, “When I’m president, we’re not spending taxpayer money on anything that the Westboro Baptist Church doesn’t approve of first.”

This week, Secretary of State Clinton commemorated International Human Human Rights Day with a speech in which she declared, “[G]ay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.” In response, Rick Perry released a television spot in which he said, “you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.” But what I heard was, “Hey bigots. Look at me! I’m a bigot, too! Make me president and we can make a more bigoted America!”
