Rick Santorum today issued a campaign ad which brutally mocks Ted Cruz for reading Green Eggs & Ham during his failed Senate filibuster. Via Politico:
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is taking the gloves off against Ted Cruz in a new video touting his achievements in the Senate and hitting the Texas senator for his apparent penchant for reading children’s books to score political points, featuring Cruz’s wife and daughters in a brief clip of his opponent’s own ad.
“Ted Cruz is wonderful at reading children’s fairy tales on the Senate floor,” the spot titled, appropriately, “Fairy Tales” begins, showing Cruz reading Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” during a filibuster on the Senate floor in 2013. It then contrasts Cruz’s conduct in the Senate with that of Santorum, who served from 1995 to 2007.
