JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The Democratic National Committee has put out a second ad slamming GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney for saying “Corporations are people, my friend,” in response to a heckler on Thursday.

The moment those words were out of his mouth, it was just a matter of time till they made their way into an attack ad. The first was out in a matter of hours, and made creative use of the Barbara Streisand song, “People.”

This new ad lacks Streisand’s dulcet tones, but shows the type of 30 second-style attack ads we can expect if Romney winds up getting the Republican nomination. Opening with the comment, “Mitt Romney stands with the Tea Party,” it then goes on to air the controversial comments before closing with the slogan, “Mitt Romney: Putting Corporations First.”

The DNC is airing the ad in the Des Moines area from Saturday through mid-week.
