Pot, meet kettle: Jon Huntsman calls Ron Paul "unelectable"

Perhaps Jon Huntsman has a wry sense of humor or something.

Via CBS News:
A day after new polling that shows Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul with a clear lead over Jon Huntsman in the critical primary state of New Hampshire, the Huntsman campaign has released an aggressive new web ad attacking Paul for publishing racist and homophobic essays.

In the video, titled "Unelectable," the Huntsman campaign focuses on the newsletters published under Paul's name in the 1980s and 1990s, which included controversial comments about African-Americans. Paul has disavowed the newsletters, insisting that he did not write the controversial comments, nor did they represent his beliefs.

I would comfortably say, that regardless of Huntsmann's lack of chance of ever getting through a GOP primary series, he would easily be more electable in a general election over Ron Paul. (and I like Ron Paul)
