Stupor Tuesday Approaches: Romney, Gingrich and Santorum Air It Out in Tennessee

Posted By on Mon, Mar 5, 2012 at 4:09 PM

Maybe you don't watch TV that much, and have been wondering what kinds of really convincing arguments Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are putting out there for Tennessee voters in advance of Super Tuesday? Or maybe you just like watching commercials on the Internet? Or are a masochist? Two or more of the above?

Well, over at Slate, David Weigel posted some of the Republican primary ads that are running in Tennessee. I've seen all of these on the tube (that's increasingly no longer a tube). Ron Paul fans will notice the absence of a Paul ad here, but I haven't seen one on TV in Nashville. I'm sure this is (weed) part of his (weed) delegate strategy (weed), or something (weed) (gold) (weed).

In any case, for your consideration:

Mitt Romney has more or less conceded he might come in "a close second" in Tennessee, so to prove he's not trying very hard, his Super PAC has put together this ad, which attacks Rick Santorum for voting to fund Planned Parenthood, something something Obama and his liberal friends something something:


Newt Gingrich, man of the people! Unlike Mitt Romney, who probably doesn't pump his own gas, according to some person standing outside. (But I bet Mitt has some friends who own gas station chains.) This Super PAC ad tells us, "It's time to choose Newt," which kind of looks like, "It's time to chew nuts." Same difference.


Rick Santorum approved this message, which is like a freshman term paper — copied and pasted from other sources, lacking a thesis, or for that matter, an original thought, and capped by a great big "Look at me, I made this!" grin at the end. Wake me when he posts a video of himself vomiting while watching a JFK speech.
