Perry Getting Desperate: Releases Gay-Baiting, War-on-Christmas-Trumpeting Campaign Ad

Things must be looking grim for candidate Rick Perry, if he's assuring voters with a new ad swearing he'll "end Obama's war on religion." What war, you ask? Why the war that's exemplified, in Perry's words, by fact that "gays can serve openly in the military, while our kids can't celebrate Christmas openly."

Really, Rick? Really? This Jewish blogger who has already been listening to Christmas carols for three weeks straight on every radio station and seeing Christmas wreaths go up on every corner in "godless" New York City says: tell that to the millions of kids who are waiting, openly and proudly, to open their presents under the tree on the 25th. I'm sure they'll be surprised to hear of the Obama-led jihad on their joy.

This campaign ad, "Strong" is what I call slamming the door on the way out.
