Oh, Rick Perry, as long as you keep providing the oops moments, the media definitely won't be able to quit you.

A day after the release of his already infamous "Strong" campaign ad — the one in which he bashes the idea of gays serving in the military — Perry is making fashion news of sorts.

If you think that jacket he's wearing in the "Strong" ad looks familiar, it should … it's almost identical to the one Heath Ledger wore in "Brokeback Mountain."

And it's a jacket that — kudos to Yahoo! for digging up the evidence — the late "Brokeback Mountain" costume designer Marit Allen noted was chosen to help convey the repressed homosexuality of Ledger's cowboy, Ennis.
