The Winning Republican Campaign Ad For 2012

...comes from Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour:
I'd like to take a moment to talk with you about our country's future and a very special leader - Haley Barbour. The problems of the 1980's are rapidly changing and demanding new solutions and fresh vigorous ideas. I've learned first hand that Haley Barbour has the intelligence, courage and experience to make a great United States Senator. These are difficult times but slowly and surely we are making America prosperous again. With leaders like Haley Barbour we can look to the future with confidence and hope.
The endorser? President Ronald Reagan.

Despite Glenn Beck's rhetoric, Barbour's political rivals will be hard-pressed to come up with a better advertisement.

If you listen really carefully... you can hear Mitt Romney screaming "D'oh!" in the distance...
