Rick Santorum Ad: "This Man"

Ouch.



Look, I think that no matter how brutal a primary campaign gets, inevitably the candidates all coalesce around whomever becomes the party's nominee.

In 2008, everyone was saying that the political version of a steel-cage-match that was Clinton versus Obama would hand the Republicans a 'W' in the general election.

And we all know how that worked out.

This time around, it is the Republicans who are the subject of the "oh noes, you're going to hand the election to Barack Obama" worrywarts. And, while the campaign has gotten/is getting uglier, it's not so bad that voters are going to be turned off come November.

That said, Santorum is really going after Romney with this ad. Yikes.
