Relishing in controversy, Gingrich cuts ad out of debate moment

No one can say that Newt Gingrich shies away from controversy. To the contrary, he seems to relish in it, to be emboldened by it.

He drew big applause from the South Carolina GOP crowd during his latest sparring with a moderator at last night's debate when talking about food stamps and children working as a janitors, which some have perceived as having racial overtones.

Now, he's made an ad out of it. His campaign cut down his response to 30 seconds, added music, and played up the applause.
