Ron Paul Takes Shot at Jon Huntsman on Twitter

by at . Comments

Politicians (or at least interns with access to official campaign accounts) need to fall in line with the rest of celebrity culture and talk trash on Twitter more often.

On a night in which he finished a strong third after the hotly-contested Iowa caucus results were tabulated, Ron Paul took a hilarious shot at Jon Huntsman online.

Paul personally did not write this, but someone with access to his Twitter did, and the campaign even owned up to it, rather than use the "hacking" defense. Look:

Hilarious Paul Tweet

Huntsman, the former Utah governor who skipped Iowa to focus on next week's primary in New Hampshire, has been hitting Paul in the latter state in recent days.

Paul's campaign hasn't engaged him directly, but they clearly noticed.

The Tweet was nixed shortly after it posted, but Paul spokesman Gary Howard said it was mistakenly deleted and was later re-posted. He told Politico the following:

"I think someone mistakenly deleted it. I think our IT guy didn't know it was being tweeted when he saw it, thought someone hacked it. But it wasn't hacked."

"It was our tweet. We said what we wanted to say."

Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller said in response:

"We find it odd that Congressman Paul would attack Gov. Huntsman in such a childish fashion. Just the latest in a long line of odd statements from him."

Game on in New Hampshire, gentlemen!
