Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry has rolled out a new campaign ad, one unlike any you’ve seen before. And quite possibly for good reason.

Like the infamous Herman Cain smoking ad, you see it once and think “No, this has to be a parody.” Then you watch it again, and nope, it’s sure not.

The Cliff Notes: Perry is strong. Obama loves gays and hates Christmas. Nice.

Rick Perry 'Strong' Ad

Give the Texas Governor credit for melding every wedge issue – homosexuals serving in the military, Barack Obama, the secularization of America, and people who don’t celebrate Christmas – into an ad less than 30 seconds long. Skillfull!

While Perry is clearly gearing the ad toward a segment of the Iowa electorate and it may well prove to be effective, it has 3,213 likes and 138,473 dislikes on YouTube.

Sort of like how Perry polls a lot of places.
