Dave Weigel takes a look at a new wave of campaign ads attacking Newt Gingrich's stance on immigration quite disingenuously. His takeaway:
"There's a little deja vu here, because in 2007, Romney closed out the Iowa caucuses with a similar campaign. Iowans who'd fallen in love with Mike Huckabee were told of his dangerously pro-immigrant views. It didn't work. This seems to be working better. The story about Romney now is more "Gingrich reels from ad assault," less "this ad is untrue."
