Yao Ming was recently featured in a Rick Perry attack ad against Bill White.
The ad shows a picture of Bill White standing next to Yao with the words "Bill White, running from his support for cap & trade" written over it. I dunno WHAT Yao has to do with cap and trade (big man = big CO2 emissions?). My guess is the photo is just supposed to be some kinda xenophobic metaphor that Bill White stands with big, bad China.
I'm not trying to turn this into a political debate. All I know is, Yao is the man, and if he's a fan of Bill White, all politics aside, that only makes Bill White cooler in my book.
