As each GOP Clown Car occupant falters — the latest was Herman Cain — they try to run for cover and say their troubles are the result of some left-wing conspiracy. But why should the left even lift a finger when fellow occupants in the off-the-rails Clown Car are doing such a great job of destroying what little credibility exists in this bunch.
The latest is Ron Paul, taking on Newt Gingrich. It’s not as if there isn’t a lot of fertile ground here; a creature of the Beltway, Gingrich has a juicy history of hypocrisy on so many levels, and a rich back catalog of appearances on video to feast upon. So give this video a whirl and enjoy.
My personal favorite moment: Rush Limbaugh practically having an aneurysm when Newt goes off message.
And read Joan Walsh’s piece on Salon about this ad.
