Ron Paul vs. the “pretty boys” – Corrected
The race for the 2012 presidential nomination comes down to this: Ron Paul against the “pretty boys” — at least that’s what some of the most ardent supporters of the Texas congressman think.
The political action committee Revolution Pac , dedicated to Paul’s candidacy, compares their man to “media darlings” Mitt Romney (“this pretty boy”) and Texas Governor Rick Perry (“that pretty boy”) in a new ad branding the congressman “a statesman not a plastic man.”
“Wait a minute, can’t we do better?” the announcer asks, referring to Paul’s more popular opponents (who appear in animation) in the polls.
The ad, not authorized by the candidate, debuted last week. It’s posted on YouTube. But Revolution Pac is looking for wider distribution. The PAC is seeking donations to buy TV time to air the spot in the crucial early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Correction – Video was not posted on Paul’s official Web site
