Via Hot Air, a new Ron Paul ad reminds Republicans that Newt talks out of both sides of his ass.

No Newt is good Newt.

    I knew the Ron Paul campaign was good for something. Ron poke him with a stick.

    God is fucking with me again.

    Even though the city isn’t coming by to collect leaves until next week I decided to be a good neighbor and rake my front lawn this morning and put the leaves in a nice, neat pile by the curb.

    It was cold, overcast and foggy this morning. This afternoon it is sunny and windy.

    All the leaves I raked up this morning (along with the ones that were in front of my neighbor’s or still on the trees) are now about a block away on a different neighbor’s front yard.

    I’m glad I live upwind.

    It’s a good thing my office is on the ground floor because having to make a choice between Obama or Newt is enough to make me want to jump out the window.

    I’ve only heard 3 good arguments for Newt:
    1. He’s not Obama
    2. You have to fight evil with evil.
    3. He’s experienced with crony capitalism and knows how DC works.

    Hell, his wives could’ve told them that.

    Well, I have good news to report. As of today I now have two part time jobs. But they’re both in education, so I can live with that. I’ll be back in the classroom starting in January. Finally!

    That’s two dominoes that fell the right way. One more to set up, and hope it falls correctly!

    It’s an interesting campaign season. Ron can probably only afford a small media buy with the ad. In fact he may be spending nothing on media, just the small cost to produce. But the video is already being passed around enthusiastically everywhere by D and R campaign teams and political media outlets. Believe they call that earned media instead of paid media in marketing parlance.

    Newt’s ahead of Obama now … per Ras that is.

    Interesting tidbit I heard today, Reagan was never ahead of Carter in the polls until the month before the election.

    For a fiscal conservative, Ron Paul pissed away some money on that ad. Does he think he’s next in line when Gingrich fizzles? I’m pretty sure GOP voters aren’t crazy about quotes from MSNBC being used.

    That won’t hurt Newt. Newt will hurt Newt.

    As this is an open thread: Did you watch Obama’s Thanksgiving video? Totally bizarre!

    Looking unfestive, almost angry he reads his lines in a dispassionate, almost sneering fashion. Then, as he is naming his wife and daughters his eyes race wildly back and forth on the prompter while – not unlike a child who hasn’t quite yet learned a certain string of words – his hand beats the rhythm:
    “Mi-CHELLE, MA-lia, SA-sha and I …

    Guess it’s hard when you can’t just “sum” the family up as “you guys” or “those kids”. 😕
