Set to the music from the "Twilight Zone," Jon Huntsman's… (Jon Huntsman 2012 )
Set to the music from"The Twilight Zone,” Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign posted an ad last week casting rival Ron Paul as a “crazy uncle.”
The ad, the first in what was promised to be a weekly series titled “The Ron Paul Chronicles,” highlighted some of Paul’s more controversial views. (Watch the ad below.)
Perhaps that’s why someone in the Paul campaign took to Twitter on Tuesday night – as Paul was in a virtual dead heat with Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum for first place in the Iowa caucuses -- to taunt Huntsman, who did not compete in Iowa and was on track to place last with less than 1% of the vote.
Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller called the tweet “childish” and used it as an opportunity to call attention to Paul’s history of making controversial statements.
“We find it odd that Rep. Paul would attack Gov. Huntsman in such a childish fashion,” Miller said in an email statement. “That said, it is just the latest in a long line of odd statements from him, like when he called Martin Luther King Jr. a pedophile for example.”
