Newt Gingrich's New Hampshire team record a Christmas carol, and Ben Smith saves it from obscurity.
We should count ourselves blessed. Four years ago, the first time the caucuses fell over these holidays, every candidate cut some kind of horrifying Christmas ad. Rudy Giuliani's was the humdinger we remember.
Hillary Clinton's hit the same chord, with less induction of physical pain.
Ron Paul's campaign liked its 2008 ad so much that it re-upped the video for 2012, with one clumsy edit.
They were dark times, but we survived.
