Rick Perry Releases Mitt Romney Fire People Ringtone, Restoring Truthiness Releases Rick Perry Ringtone

Rick Perry RingtoneModified from Rick Perry Campaign
We searched high and low for the evidence of the now infamous Rick Perry ringtone tribute to Mitt Romney that mocked the former Massachusetts Governor/Bain Capital Executive’s recent comment about his glee over firing people. But we had no luck. We even went so far as to become a member of Rick Perry’s website and thus a defacto “Perry Supporter” (I am so washing my keyboard out with soap after this!) but no evidence was to be found. The only remnant we could find was this link from ABC News which led us to a 404 page. So strange.

Anyhow, in the spirit of ringtones, we thought we’d put together a little tone just for Perry. We scrounged up a few Perry “highlights” from the campaign trail tossed them in ringtone for you to enjoy. We had to keep these highlights to a reasonable number so that you do remember to eventually answer your phone.
