HuTube: Dueling '12 Days' Vids

The warm spirit of the holidays is not deterring the Rick and Kay campaigns from their latest bitter back-and-forth: competing "12 Days of Christmas" riffs.

U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Gov. Rick Perry.

The warm spirit of the holidays is not deterring the Rick and Kay campaigns from their latest bitter back-and-forth: competing "12 Days of Christmas" riffs. The Perry campaign's "12 Days of [KBH] Flip Flops" landed in our inboxes just minutes before the Hutchison's campaign's "12 Days of Perry Cronyism." Leave it to the magic of marrying sound and moving images to encapsulate the themes of this race — all to a familiar holiday tune.

Herewith, the dueling web videos on the 12th day (we will be getting eleven more of these from each campaign):

PERRY CAMPAIGN: The 12 Days of Flip Flops

KBH CAMPAIGN: The 12 Days of Perry Cronyism

Judge these for yourselves. I like the red and green backgrounds used by the Perry campaign in their web video, while the warm fire image in KBH's video was nice on this chilly day.
