Dear Newt, Ron Paul would like to warmly welcome you to your new role as frontrunner, or at least almost-frontrunner, with this blistering new ad. It's called "Serial Hypocrisy," notes the Daily Caller, and it weaves together various clips (Gingrich talking health care with Nancy Pelosi, the "social engineering" comment about Paul Ryan, his Freddie Mac riches, Rush Limbaugh blasting him, etc.) into a two-and-a-half-minute assault.

  • Business Insider: Calls it "scathing," with a clear aim to "remind conservatives why they didn't like Newt Gingrich the first time around."
  • Politico: "The hardest blow yet against Newt Gingrich ..."
  • Mediaite: It's "absolutely brutal" ...
  • Salon: Joan Walsh is "awestruck" by it, and not because she's in it.
