New ad: Newt Gingrich ‘will stick it to the bums in D.C.’

A new ad from a super PAC supporting former House speaker Newt Gingrich makes its case with New Jersey accents.

The Winning Our Future ad is another animated spot, featuring a burly talk radio host who wants listeners to tell him who can beat President Obama.

“It ain’t nobody named Mitt, that’s for sure,” a caller named “Joey” responds. “Something about him, he’s not one of us. He’s not tough enough. And Rick? He ain’t my guy either. What’s he ever done?”

Asked who he would support, Joey responds: “If you really want to stick it to the bums in D.C., it’s Newt. The guy’s a fighter. And he ain’t afraid to hurt nobody’s feelings. ... Can you imagine what he’ll do to Obama in a debate? He’ll take him and all his crazy liberal ideas apart. Heck, I’d pay to see that on pay-per-view.”

Joey signs off with a “Fuggedaboutit,” as he’s revealed to be a skinny office-worker in a suit.

The ad is airing in Georgia, where polls may or may not show an enduring affection for “The Sopranos.”
