For those who cannot view the video, the following is a political attack ad by Ron Paul’s campaign against fellow primary GOP contender Newt Gingrich. Here’s a quote from a right-wing blog, Townhall.com, to put things in perspective:
What makes this ad particularly brutal is the degree to which its content is comprised of (a) flashback quotes from Newt himself (the Pelosi counch of trust is especially galling), and (b) criticism from prominent conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Paul Ryan. The spot’s implicit question: If Republican voters aren’t willing to back Romney because of his shape-shifting political opportunism, is Newt really the antidote?
Ouch. These guys are like bugs hittin’ the zapper, the way they fall from grace these days. This is gearing up to be an interesting primary for sure!
Just remember, representative electoral politics are nothing but a fucken sideshow and a way to keep people from participating in actual democracy.
