In thepreceding post I referenced this swift-boat-style ‘documentary’ on Mitt Romney and Bain Capital which the Gingrich-backing SuperPAC (Winning Our Future) has bought and will use as the battering ram against Romney in South Carolina. They’ve put up a trailer for it now which you can see after the jump. It really is right out of the Swift Boat witch’s brew, the camp lighting, rumbling black clouds, the cinematography of 30 second hit ads expanded out longform.
Right? And so the headaches that result when Republicans see this stuff (laid out nicely in Tommy’s post below, as well) being used against their own are partly comical, and partly infuriating. I mean, did you think it wouldn’t happen to you, fellas? Did you think you’d invented a gun that only shot your enemies?
