    By Steve Clemons writing in The Atlantic

    PS: The video is so "popular" that the publisher has disabled comments. The publisher is Rickperry.org

    The organization is almost as dumb as the candidate.

    I thought it was a terrible commercial, but someone got the idea that this was how Huckabee beat Romney in Iowa in 2008, so let's pander to the Christian Right.

    The problem is that Bachmann and Santorum have more street Cred with the Christian Right.

    What gets me is that his campaign puts out the video on YouTube...basically he self publishes.

    The site goes nuts and he gets 600,000 people telling him to, in essence, shut the hell up.

    So his campaign disables the comment portion of the video whereby you can't comment on that particular video (other publishers may have comments enabled).

    But they still leave the video up itself to draw more fire? Amatuer hour is not over yet as we can tell.

    Ooops...I'm not supposed to talk about fire and Perry in the same sentence. He hasn't mastered YouTube much less how to put out fires. LOL

    I wonder if that idiot realizes the mess that putting DADT back in place will do to the military, because if gay soldiers and sailors are allowed in and then on active duty, it's gonna be a mass exodus of discharges which will do more to HARM the military than repealing DADT ever did.

    Very true but I think where he left the reservation (assuming he ever found one to start with) was when he equated a soldier's sexuality to a war on religion.

    When he ends his war on logic and thinking before speaking, perhaps he can talk about ending a supposed war on religion.

    That's why I won't support him... If he is going to be an anti-gay, Christianity is the sole religion type of President, god only knows he could be the next Hitler (impossible, but still).

    Nope, Perry doesn't have the charisma or the smarts to be like that.

    Newt does however.

    I hardly imagine all 600,000 dislikes he received were all from liberals. Just people with common sense. Tying a war on religion to gays serving their country in the military is just the tip of the incredibly stupid stance your boy has taken.
