Gov. Rick Perry’s new anti-gay ad is raising some eyebrows. It hit airwaves in Iowa Wednesday, one day after Perry criticized President Obama for a memo directing agencies to provide humanitarian aid to programs designed to protect gay rights in other countries.

Is seems, though, that some of Perry’s own staff wasn’t onboard with the controversial ad.
The Huffington Post is citing sources who say top pollster Tony Fabrizio was uncomfortable with the script and called it ‘nuts.’

In an email to the Huffington Post, GOP operative Nelson Warfield wrote, "Tony was against it from the get-go. It was the source of some extended conversation in the campaign. To be very clear: That spot was mine from writing the poll question to test[ing] it to drafting the script to overseeing production."

In the ad, Perry says he’s "Not ashamed to admit he’s a Christian. But you don’t have to be in a pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong when gays can serve openly in the military, but ourkids can’t openly celebrate Christmas."
