Rick Perry's controversial faith ad

Though the Republican contest is now between Romney and Newt, Perry's ad is the talk of the town.  He just plunked down $1 million to buy 3 weeks' worth of TV commercials in the state of Iowa.  Iowa is the first of 50 states to hold a primary/caucus to determine the Republican nominee for president.  That's market saturation in a state of just 3 million residents.

Cable news and social media have hyper-accelerated this election season.  On my couch sits last Sunday's New York Times.  On the cover is Herman Cain.  Herman who?
