The Atlantic : "Ron Paul Goes Negative on Newt Gingrich"
Everyone on Twitter and in the blogosphere this morning seems to be talking about Ron Paul's new video ad attacking Newt Gingrich, the latest anti-Romney surging the GOP presidential field, collectively characterizing the spot as "brutal." "Newt Gingrich: Serial Hypocrisy" blasts the former speaker for his litany of well-documented improprieties, splicing together various clips from primary debates, Fox News segments, Rush Limbaugh's radio show, and Newt's climate-change PSA with Nancy Pelosi to paint Gingrich as a big faux-conservative hypocrite. It goes to town on him for acknowledging global warming, switching his stance on Wall Street bailouts, getting a seven-figure payout from Freddie Mac, and acting like a lobbyist (while not technically being one!) for healthcare companies. The Wall Street Journal reports that the spot will not run on television but instead will sent "to a far-reaching email list of conservative voters," according to a Paul spokesperson.
