Who was it that predicted a few weeks ago that a ruling by a Polk County, Iowa judge would turn into a gift for Mitt Romney? Oh, right—that was God-o-Meter! Romney is out with a new radio ad in Iowa rehashing his fight against same-sex marriage as governor of Massachusetts, where the state supreme court legalized gay unions in 2003. For all the unremitting punditry on how Romney’s Mormonism and his formerly liberal social stances will prevent him from picking up serious evangelical support, no other top-tier GOP candidate has been half as persistent or disciplined about courting such voters. This ad is step #768 in the Romney camp’s 1,200-step program for winning over skeptical religious conservatives.
