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.
“@JonHuntsman we found your one Iowa voter, he’s in Linn precinct 5 you might want to call him and say thanks,” the campaign posted on Paul’s Twitter account.
